AFE Mach Force or Banks Catback on '15 Summit EcoDiesel

As it appears there are only a handful of CatBack exhaust systems that work on the '14/'15 EcoDiesels, but none of them are listed to work on the Summit.

I have narrowed my choice down to these two and I am planning on buying either the AFE Mach Force with resonators, or the Banks, and then have a shop make the tips fit (if needed).

The AFE is appealing because it has the resonators, but the Banks has the 3”piping advantage. Not that the latter matters too much, as the restrictive bits are still upstream of the catback. Another advantage of the banks is that the tips are a separate piece, or at least from the stock photo’s it appears that way. Which could potentially simplify the addition of the summit tips, although they probably are 2 1/2” ID.

Does anyone on here have any experience with either of these (quality, drone, etc.) on their EcoDiesel?

Edit: also found this MagnaFlow Exhaust that specifically mentions fitment for the summit:

Re: AFE Mach Force or Banks Catback on '15 Summit EcoDiesel

I have the AFE exhaust, with resonators. Installed about a week ago. I can't get it to line up perfectly, it sits to the right a bit, so I probably have to adjust it some more. There is no drone and there is barely any more sound. You get a slight low rumble at idle and under load while accelerating but it's barely noticeable. If you want an exhaust buy one because you want it to look better (looks great) and you want less restriction and theoretically quicker turbo spool. Don't buy it for the sound because you'll be disappointed.

mind posting a pic of the rear, I would like to see how the tips look. nevermind, i just noticed you had an Overland, I was hoping to see on a Summit. Glad to hear it does not change sound much, I was hoping to find something with similar sound as stock.

I missed the window with black Friday to pick one up, but I have narrowed it down to the magnaflow for now, as that one actually is made for the summit and won't require any customizing to make it work.

Did you end up buying the MF exhaust for the summit? If so, how does it look/sound/perform? Any noticeable difference in sound? Droning?

I did not, my money had to go to another project. But it is still on my radar though!
