The Xpipe is definitely a great addition and sounds nice as long as you dont like to go at full throttle but i personally like a deeper sound.
Heres my piece of advice, keep the x pipe and the mufflers you have at the back. To deepen the sound add a pair of glass packs just after the x pipe. You'll deepen the sound without losing performance.

. Sorry for the insistence but what you mean to add a pair of glass packs after de xpipe? I really don't understand much about mechanics. Thanks in advance

Its like a resonator just a little longer and narrower. They will deepen your exhaust note. And putting them right after the x pipe will tune the exhaust note. So you can go wot with a lot less tinny sound.

Thanks for the idea with this Jeff, just had the suitcase removed and 2 14" glasspacks installed. Wasn't enough room to squeeze an x-pipe in there but this still sounds REALLY nice in this configuration.

if you don't put an xpipe in the exhaust you loose torque and power..

The loss in power is not noticable except on a dyno. Im setup this way on my 3.7 and you wont notice the lack of an x pipe

Re: X pipe with muffler delete OR Reso delete?

I know this is an old thread but I removed my POS suitcase muff and plopped in an X pipe and here are my findings.

From the factory there is no crossover meaning no scavenging which means held back power and efficiency. The factory muffler is a giagantic, uneven heavy POS. It needed to go.

The sound is great. I have not gone WFO yet but I let it hit 4k and it's nice. It sounds more like a Challenger though. I gained a solid 1mpg and the engine seems a bit smoother. I've been driving home the same way for since I've owned this WK2 and I always put the jeep in cruise down this police ridden 40mph road. It is uphill slightly. It always drops into a lower gear to 2k. Since the X Pipe it does not drop down but stays around 1200 which means it picked up torque. I am extremely happy for the $160 I have invested.

Just did it. Pic and vid below. It is completely inaudible until 2500RPM in the cab. 0 drone.
