Muffler Re-Locator

I was looking into relocating my muffler, and was wondering which companies do this and what the cost is like? ... Pictures would be appreciated

Easiest for me was simply to put on a smaller muffler than stock. In some cases, I guess that might not be feasible- wanting to enlarge the storage tub, etc....but for me, I just wanted to get it out of the way of rocks/ boulders.

My Flowmaster Hushpower II is still in the stock location now, but is completely hidden and not in the least vulnerable to damage.

If you relocate in-line, than a Cherry Bomb Glasspack or DynoMax Ultra-Flo SS might be worth looking into.

Get an EVAP relocation and then get a local muffler shop to do the relocation of the exhaust. This is a cheap "turbo" with 2.5" aluminized pictured. It was $120 for complete exhaust out the door.

Best kit on the market. The new exit pipe sits super high up.

I used Woods (JeepSwag). Awesome kit, good price, high clearance (routed above the sway bar) and two tips.

Bought a flow master 44 and went down to the muffler shot where they put installed in under the driver's side without using any kit. Removed the stock muffler and used the bent piece that goes over the axle as the exhaust tip so mine ends under the Jeep behind the rear axle. 90 for the muffler and 50 for the install.

Allan, I also did this on JeepJK2, however, got a hand-me-down muffler from co4lo, cut the pipe myself and installed it with some clamps I had, all in about 30 minutes. Free. Free....and Free. Works great! I like the clean, finished look of the aboveumall exit pipe though. Pretty nice!

Aboveumall is right over in Golden. You should go see Ed and he can give you a demo.
