exhaust $$$ really ?

Ok so I am thinking about getting an exhaust on my wk. I looked up prices and a cat back system magnaflow is $694 and MBRP is $470. Im just curious is this the price everyone else payed? That is a lot of money I might just go with a chip and CAI for about the same price. witch would I benefit more from? I have a 4.7

Re: exhaust $$$ really ?

That is about right for the MSRP for a cat-back system in stainless (which I would recommend). Naturally you can find them cheaper through mass distributors.
MBRP is a solid cat-back system. Won't get that magnaflow sound but it still sounds good.

do a google search for the part number, find a few sites, then check out www.retailmenot.com for a coupon code for those sites.

Re: exhaust $$$ really ?

Can someone tell me if this is all I would need to buy to upgrade/replace my exhaust system on a 4.7 wk 4wd or would I need other parts as well?

MagnaFlow Jeep Grand Cherokee Single Cat-Back Exhaust System - AutoTruckToys.com

What would be a fair price to get this installed by a dealership/local garage?

I was told today that I had an exhaust manifold leak as well..

Re: exhaust $$$ really ?

Got my MBRP exhaust shipped for $389 in T409 stainless. I ordered through PerformanceTruckProducts.com you can also easy search for coupon codes to many of the online distributors. Also installation is very easy (My MBRP was 10 pieces including nuts and bolts) Hardest part about driveway installation is removing the old exhaust.
