I have to modify my exhaust due to my lift...... I was going to replace the muffler but wasn't sure what would sound and perform well on my jeep (4.0)! What are you guys using and are you happy with it?

Thanks for any imput!

I have a full Borla exhaust system (header/catback). I am happy with it, but I mostly chose it for it's warranty and resistance to rusting. Frankly go with what you think sounds best because IMHO they all put out about the same HP gains for the 4.0L.

I think Borla, Magnaflow, hell even Flows are all decent choices. If your replacing the muffler, is there any reason you don't replace the entire cat-back system? Another option if money is tight, is to just weld up a 2.5" straight pipe in place of the muffler and buy a $30.00 cut out instead Smile Hrmmm wonder how a I6 sounds with straight pipes...

I bought a Banks cat-back system for my Unlimited but haven't installed it yet. I believe Banks uses MagnaFlow mufflers.

I built my exhaust from autozone. It was pretty cheap, total was around $50. I had to do something due to the holes in the muffler and the cat breaking apart and creating a blockage for me. I haven't noticed a difference in mpg since my last exhaust and the new one.

Don't know about the Banks muffler being made by Magnaflow (it had Banks molded into it) but I'm very happy with mine. Good quality and it sounds fine.

Yeah, maybe I dreamed it, but I swear I read somewhere that MagnaFlow manufactured the mufflers for Banks.

Maybe it was an acid flashback. Mr. Green
