2015 GC - Covert to duel exhaust?

Hey everyone - first time post, but long time lurker.

Purchased a 2015 GC Limited (replaced my 2004 Limited) in White and loving it to death. Along with working on ditching some of the chrome parts like so many others, I also HATE the look of the single exhaust; can't really figure out why Jeep went with it.

Anyway, I've been looking into some duel exhaust parts. My question here, is has anyone converted it yet? I'm not looking for crazy performance boosts, more so just to make it more ascetically pleasing. I found a whole bunch of 3rd party systems that start to get a bit $$$. Would snagging the OEM parts for an Altitude, Summit, or Overland fit underneath fit? (I know I would need the back paneling for the duel exhaust as well). Just looking for some insight and suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Welcome!

I never understood Jeep's reasoning for going single exhaust on the 2015 Limited. I love the dual exhausts on my 2014.

If you search around the forum you'll find a few threads of folks that upgraded from single to dual exhausts.

Re: 2015 GC - Covert to duel exhaust?

The people driving behind you will appreciate the symmetry of your rear end. Unfortunately they won't contribute to the conversion.


On second thought, the folks behind you won't GARA about your exhaust. But you will get to admire it when you wash the Jeep. That will make it all worth it.


In case you haven't guessed, I think you could find better ways to enhance your Jeep for you,




But that is just my opinion, not necessarily a suggestion.

Re: 2015 GC - Covert to duel exhaust?

A friend of mine who bought a '15 was not happy about the single exhaust either. I'd guess the '14 V6 catback would fit just fine. And as far as the bumper, I can't find a great picture of the Jeep rear end, but could you just make a smooth clean cutout to mimic the other side or is there some styling in the bumper around the cutout?

Re: 2015 GC - Covert to duel exhaust?

Thanks for the replies guys. You could technically make a cut out, but the stock back has a cut out and it folds in under itself a bit. Crappy pic but you can kind of see it's not just a sheer cut out (not my car, just a googled pic). With that said, if you just made a cut out it would be pretty hard to notice - you would have to be really looking for it I would think.

The dual exit bumper cover you need is only about 100 bucks if you look around, and its an easy swap on and off.

That was about as passive aggressive as a post can get...

Re: 2015 GC - Covert to duel exhaust?

ive actually been thinking of doing this myself on my white '15 limited. It kills me when i see other cars that are seemingly identical, but they have dual exhaust. I also hate how the muffler tip doesnt even reach the end of the bumper cover.

Re: 2015 GC - Covert to duel exhaust?

I was at the local Jeep dealership and just for kicks I went to the parts department and asked the guy behind the counter for a rough estimate for the conversion. He tapped away on his computer and came up with $3,000 for all the parts/hangers/components which seemed utterly absurd to me.


I looked on my own online and new duel stock system for just Mufflers/Pipes is ~$1,000 which is still kinda crazy to me...You can get a Magnaflow for a bit more than that.

EXHAUST COMPONENTS for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

You could probably have your local auto body place rig something up as well for much less. Haven't looked too much into it since I last posted, besides finding stock prices. The exhaust is the last mod on my list right now, but will happen sooner or later.

Re: 2015 GC - Covert to duel exhaust?

One positive way to look at it is your Limited is slightly lighter than the other dual exhaust equipped ones :-) and there is absolutely no benefit to HP or any performance whatsoever to have that extra huge muffler and extra piping. With that said, I do like the look of dual exhaust though.

First of all Jeep does different packages as you already know. Dual is an upgrade, which is why it's on the overland and summit. Also there are plenty of other threads on here you can search that have dozen and dozens of replies with video and pictures of what people have done. Just have to do a little digging Check out Borla's 2+2's, or magnaflow have a nice one as well. Also summits have more horsepower for their duals. GL
