Any specific requests?
If I could figure out how to load a video via tapatalk I would.

And my request would be a for drive by and/or drive off video. I know what it sounds like in the car but not what it sounds like driving away. No way I would let my wife drive it now. She might come back!

I thought about this, but I'm a little worried about drone. How is it with your setup?

I did same thing. Cut out that huge factory muffler and replaced it with the magnaflow, iirc it's 23 or 24 inch version. Sounds great, weighs a ton less than the factory. Drone isn't noticeable.

WOW your jeep looks amazing, great job bro! I have a 3.7 and am thinking of going with a Gibson catback as well. Love how its a single wall angled tip. Not a big fan of the straight out rolled tip of the Magnaflow.

Re: Gibson or Magnaflow exhaust

Just a little update. I went with the Gibson. I found it on Amazon new for $305 shipped! Price really became the deciding factor when I found that deal. One of the last ones in stock, too.

You will not be disappointed. IMO it's perfect for a daily driver. Not the loudest at WOT but has zero drone and enough rumble that at idle you can tell it's not stock.
