Looking for some advice from experience

Alright so i have been working on my 2008 grand cherokee hemi. i am in the market for an exhaust system for my jeep. I want a nice loud deep aggressive sound but i dont want a drone because i commute a lot. I have read up on gibson and magnaflow that they both have resonators. Exhaust clips on youtube dont really do much justice so it is hard to tell. does anyone have any recommendation from experience? i also like borla, and i dont think slp makes a system for our jeeps maybe the srt. Also i am interested in the OEM hid headlights, does anyone know anyone who is getting rid of those ? or even a used exhaust system? any help or input will be appreciated, thanks!

You need the resonator or else you will get drone.

I had the magnaflow and was never happy.

Gibson is the ticket IMO.



OEM projector are never cheap.

I would go yo theretrofitsource.com and get the mini retrofit. It'll cost about the same as ONE OEM plus you could paint the inside and other stuff once you have your lights open.

Re: Looking for some advice from experience

You can instal the Magnaflow muffler that just replaces the stock muffler and leave the stock pipe and reso. A lot of guys do that and love it. Total cast would be just over $100. I have also heard the new Corsa exhaust and it sounds pretty awesome! Might be worth a look, but won't be cheap. For the headlamps there is a guy selling one right now in the for sale section for like $100. Grab that and then just find yourself the other one for cheap and be set.

Does anyone have the OD/ID specs on that. Coming from the car world I would like to hear a Spintech Muffler on these.... they sound amazing on a 5.0/4.6 mustang )
