of the Magnaflow exhaust. It sounds good from the outside, just too loud in the cabin at normal cruising RPM’s for me. Almost ready to go back to Stock, any advice for least avasive exhaust.

Dynomax turbo, been running this for a while and really sounds nice with the 6 speed MT. No drone at highway speed but sounds real nice when shifting. Lighter and smaller than the stock too.

Borla S-Type or ATAK (louder option)

No drone

Because some people like louder exhaust sound and a different appearance

Same reason that some folks add larger tires! for looks and maybe never really need them

Or because when you are rock crawling it's stupid to have something that hangs down well below the bumper, and ends up getting beat up every time that you go out, so finding a solution that works, and keeps it off the rocks is desirable.

Glad to hear that factory exhaust works for you though.

Could you provide a part number for the variant resonator you used?
Vibrant 1792 bottle style resonator. Amazon $47
