Title: Changing Out Stock Muffler ON JK
Post by: john owens on April 28, 2016, 05:57:15 PM
Hey Guys I want to change my muffler like I do on most of my cars and trucks. I like magna Flow and Flowmaster. Seen Corsa Exhaust online, pricey but looks good. All I want to do is change out the muffler and use factory pipe setup. What have you guys done in the past? 2012 stock wrangler JK. Thank You!!! PS I like it racey sounding but not deafening.....

If you like the sound of Flow Master then go with that. Flow Master will generally be a little louder. I have many years (20+) of Jeep experience and have run Magna Flow, Borla, Gibson, AFE plus many more. On my current set up I went with an AFE. It is their high tuck design for better clearance ( may or may not be important to you ). I am generally pleased with the sound, one of the guys in my Jeep club was running a Magna Flow and I prefer the sound of his BUT our exhaust system is a little different.

I am running the MBRP on my JKU but more than merely the muffler.  I added their rockcrawler version which moved the muffler further forward, almost up under the driver's floorboard.  The tailpipe can then move higher up and dump over the rear axle which has added a lot of clearance at the rear departure area for off-roading.  I like the sound as well, it is not tinny or high pitched but more of a deeper, throaty sound.  As much as can be for a V-6 anyways. ;D

They have a great warranty also, about three years ago I had an internal spot weld come apart on the muffler which resulted in a rattle at certain RPM/loads.  Once I discovered it was the muffler, I contacted MBRP and they sent me another replacement muffler at no cost, just a few questions and some information was all that was required, great customer service.
