Quiet muffler, Which one?

I have a 06 LJ and want to replace the stock muffler but I would like to keep it quiet as as I can. What do you guys recommend.

Wouldn't that be WITCH ONE for married Jeepers?He said quiet. STOCK is as quiet as any.No companies boast of low performance,quiet mufflers that I know of.Loud mufflers do nothing but piss off your neighbors.

Hey Popeye - fill in your profile.
With that said, I will have to assume that since you have a stock muffler, then you probably still have your Catalytic converter. A Dynomax Super Turbo will be fine with a cat. I had a pair welded in on my Stang before I removed the cats and it was quiet. After cat removal, it rumbles at idle and screams at WOT. (More to my liking!) I would think it would be fine for what you're looking for. The 18" Magnaflow sounds pretty good too coupled with cats. I heard one of those last week at the local muffler shop.

Quiet!!!!????? Come on. What is this world coming to?

I would just find a factory replacement. You could have no muffler, have your factory catalytic convertor and still be considered quiet.
