Re: 4.7 Muffler -

Get a Magnaflow for your Jeep. Get the whole Cat-Back. You'll like it.

What year is your Jeep? I know the 08-up 4.7's have 2-3/4" pipes from the cat back and the magnaflow catback system for the 4.7 is 2.5" pipe. I just replaced my factory muffler with a 24" magnaflow and left the factory pipes and resonator on and it sounds great.

Plus just replacing the muffler was way cheaper than the full catback system. Sound is much better than stock, especially at WOP, not annoying on the highway either.

Re: 4.7 Muffler -

You should get the same Magnaflow as JeepCoop. He made a thread about on his 5.7L.

It should sound exactly what you want since you have a 4.7L. Make sure you keep the resonator too so you don't have any drone!

He made a video:

If I didn't go with cat back for the 5.7, I would have done this.

I put this magnaflow 12226 on my 4.7 and i love the way it sounds. Very nice rumble to it but its not to loud (in my opinion). Has tight sound that flows very nice. It has alittle bit of drone on the highway but i think it is tolerable. This is just one of the many options you have but I think it sounds great.
