Which way do you want to go? I've done normal cat back systems and rock systems which are much shorter and louder. The muffler is under the cab and not transversed like stock and most cat back systems.

I need to replace my entire exhaust on my jku, the entire thing is so smashed I'm surprised it can still breath, plus I have a cracked header. I'm looking for something as well, but I don't like it loud and I wouldn't mind getting rid of that rear muffler. If I had the money I would be addin the Ripp headers but DAMN they are pricey.

Yeah @shawn mine is a bit crushed up in places as well.

I don't want super loud, but a little more rumble would be ok.

This is one of my Daily Drivers, and the one i drive the most currently.

I wouldn't mind moving the muffler if it's doesn't raise the noise threshold too terribly.

Put it on yesterday, went together nice and easy, and I REALLY like the exhaust clamps they use vs shitty u-bolt style ones.

Sounds good, more deep and throaty than before (My old exhaust had a few holes and was pretty flat in a few places), I can see where someone may say it sounds a little "Ricey" but with a minivan motor in it, it sounds decent.
