Im also very new to my jeep, or any v8 for that matter. I did countless hours on what to do. I went to my local muffler shop where they let me try like 6 different mufflers before welding the chosen one on to my stock pipe. I end up going with the Flowmaster super 40. It was between that and the super 44. The 40 seemed a little tad louder and deeper when i stand on it. I also have an afe intake. The only downfall I have found is when the mds kicks on, it sounds like garbage. Aside from that the sound is exactly what I wanted...not too loud and woke it up a tad. I also left the stock resonator on.

Hey, I live 45 minutes from Boston, just one thing to say:
Stay away from Flowmaster mufflers.

the best i have heard on the 4.7...is to remove the stock suitcase sized muffler. Add in just piping in its plave and then add a simple resonator just before the tip

x2 being in Boston, I would assume you went to or talked to someone from Lou's and they are pushing a flowmaster on you?

I would do what Scott recommends here. If you don't like it you can always add a muffler to it later. It will be cheaper to add then it will be to change/replace.

the magnaflow 20 inch oval mufflers sound pretty nice and don't carry that much drone! Very deep and the plus is there stainless steel so they last forever!

Re: muffler choices
 
richxgior how loud is the muffler is it super loud or is it a nice tone

Lucas J 11-11-2011 08:40 AM

Which lou's? Go with a magnaflow. If you think it's too loud you can always add a resonator. But I recommend buying a magnaflow and not the lou's version of a magnaflow.
