Best sounding exhaust?

im looking to replace the stock muffler. i dont really wheel my jeep so clearance isnt much of an issue for me. i just want a nice deep tone thats not raspy at higher rpms... and of course for pretty cheap. i went from an 83 monte SS with a 350 sbc to the jk. i miss the deep tone lol. i know i wont get that kind of tone out of it. any suggestions?

i would get on youtube as everyone and their brother has recorded their exhaust sound. maybe you can pick from that, but IMO the dynomax sounded least ricey. pluke the 2 also has a nice sounding exhaust, cant remember what he had though

I'm currently running no muffler until I decide on what I want to drop in there. It actually sounds pretty tight! I don't mind it at all.

Anybody who has owned a V8 in their life will do whatever it takes to keep factory exhaust on their V6.. because there isn't a muffler on the planet that can make a V6 sound good. Rice.. that's what it's going to sound like no matter what you do.

No offense to anyone here.. because I've had LOTS of V8 and V6 powered 4x4s that I did exhaust work on. But the fact is, a Jeep with aftermarket exhaust sounds horrible. That 1980s 4-cylinder GM car with holes in the manifolds kind of sick nasty sound... do you really want to pay money to get that for your Jeep? Really?

On top of that, most dynos will show a drop in low end torque when you open up the exhaust as well. Just my $0.02. Spend the cash on something more useful like tires, lifts, bumpers, etc.

another vote for the flowmaster 40. sounds great, especially after it wears in for a bit. and its way smaller than the huge stock muffler

I went with the Flowmaster HushPower 2 and my stock resonator, and I like it. I wouldn't recommend the 40 series, way too loud and raspy for me. Here's my setup...

Just my $.02, but the sound you hear on a youtube clip is only gonna be as good as your speakers that you're listening to it through. Now, if you've got a killer sound system hooked to your computer, then go for it, but don't expect an accurate idea of the sound from "stock" speakers on a computer.

That being said, I think the best sounding exhaust on a JK is probably the one behind a V8 or diesel conversion.

I love the Flowmaster Super 44 I installed. I just yanked off the stock muffler, cut out a section of pipe next to the Evap box the same length as the muffler, welded in the muffler, and it dumps out right past the axle where the stock muffler should hook up. Hell if I wanted I could slap the stock muffler back on. But it doesn't drone, it's not obnoxiously loud, not raspy at all. Very smooth and mellow sounding, and deep sounds for a v-6. Cost me $60 in parts and $30 labor at a muffler shop.

Yup it relocates a smaller muffler in the area of the evap can which will need to be relocated but their is bundle price with the evap relo kit. He has some clips at jeepswag.com but as in most cases it doesnt do it justice. It has a nice exhaust note to it when getting on the throttle and has no drone on the freeway.
