Hello Jeepers, i have already ordered AFE intake and JET performance stage 1, i'm thinking of cat-back exhaust. Gibson dual or MBRP? I'm looking for sound and power, please help!

I vote for the MBRP. I've heard clips of both, and I think it sounds better than the Gibson. MBRP also has 2 different systems to choose from, theres the system that retains the stock muffler placement, and another one that relocates the muffler under the driverside floor. And I think you can get either system in aluminized or stainless.

Thanks, after checking out that site, they also offer, what looks to be an excellent solution for optima batteries, fits right across the top and has multiple connection points for wiring.

I don't turn big tires so for me it was a bit of power gain and an increase in mpg.You can spend a ton of money on your 3.8,and still not realize much of a power increase unless you do a blower.I've done everything I plan on doing to this JK of mine.I am waiting on the diesel version which really kicks a$$.
