Tread Edition:

The Jeep Wrangler exhaust that will sound good no matter where you are on the planet.



Handcrafted from US-made 3” and 2.5” T304L stainless steel, the Tread Edition is a straight-through axle-back configuration for drivers looking for rugged performance and a drone-free, signature exhaust note without sacrificing daily-drivability.

The Tread Edition features AWE’s patented, drone-canceling 180 Technology®, which provides the JL/JLU with a sophisticated, full-bodied soundtrack completely controllable via the throttle. With increased throttle, the Wrangler roars with aggression, but at highway speeds, the cabin is free of any drone, and volume is similar to stock.

Perfect tone, compliments of AWE 180 Technology®.

As exhaust gases exit the 2.0T/3.6L engine and flow into an AWE 180 Technology® equipped resonator, they pass through strategically located ports, and into reflection chambers. Sound waves, carried by these exhaust gasses, bounce off the walls of the reflection chambers. By controlling the size and location of the ports and the chambers, we also control when the sound waves exit the chambers. The specific timing of when the reflected sound waves rejoin the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies.

Mid Pipes:

Options and customization are important to us, just like it is to you.





We engineered bolt-on mid pipes to pair with your Tread Edition Axle-back for additional sound tuning and performance. Replacing the factory mid section is a robust 3” stainless steel mid pipe available as resonated or non-resonated.

For drivers looking to really uncork all of their Wrangler’s aggression should consider the non-resonated mid pipe. For those looking to up the volume while keeping it sophisticated, go resonated. Regardless of which mid pipe is chosen, drivers can look forward to keeping the cabin drone free, thanks to the 180 Technology® featured in the Tread Edition.

Tip Options:

When it comes to bringing up the rear, drivers have a couple of options. Say goodbye to the ugly suitcase muffler and dangling tail pipe, and hello to dual 4.5” double-walled, slash-cut tips in either chrome silver or diamond black.

Trail Edition:



Crawlers and overlanders: unite. The AWE Trail Edition is not only engineered to provide the best sounding exhaust note to ever be heard on the trail, it also provides maximum ground clearance while trekking rough terrain.

The Trail Edition is a 3” straight-through catback configuration featuring a bespoke mid pipe resonator, and ends right after the rear axle, tucked up next to the spare wheel well out of the way of danger. You’re left with a rugged, USA-made exhaust that provides a bespoke, drone-free soundtrack and peace of mind unlike anything else on the market.

We made it easy to convert between the Trail Edition to a single or dual outlet Tread Edition, or vice versa. Need a conversion kit? Hit the “contact us” button above to get equipped.

Loop Replacement Pipe:

Clearance matters, and the AWE Loop Replacement Pipe delivers. Ditch the loop connection and replace it with a single, smooth, swooping bend of 2.25” T304L stainless steel that bridges the gap between your factory catalyst and exhaust seamlessly. No cutting required.

So there’s Tread edition sound clips for both resonated and non resonated mid pipes, but no sound clip of what the trail edition sounds like. How does the trail edition sound level compare to the tread edition?

Thanks for askin'!

The Resonated Tread Edition would be the reference for the Trail Edition. The difference lies in the axleaback, with our patented straight-through 180 Technology® resonators that kill drone prone frequencies, exiting the rear. That aside, they're similar to a straight piece of stainless. No packing material is used in our technology. Tread Edition is very sophisticated on the highway, whereas the Trail may be a bit more present to some (others might not notice).

Trail was engineered to stay clear of danger (the Earth) when trekking terrain -- typically where drone at highway speeds is not a concern 😎 .

All of the sounds heard in the launch video at the top of the thread are courtesy of the respective Trail Editions for the Wrangler (and Gladiator).

The majority of the folks who are going to change their stock exhaust on a Jeep, do so in order to get rid of the poor clearance from the stock muffler. So the trail version is likely to be a more popular option. But only if we can directly compare the sound. If all the clips are with dual outlets, which will sound different, then I can't judge whether this sounds better than a competitors product.

Would love to hear the 2.0T and dyno's as well. I'm cautiously optimistic maybe there's even more performance gain which would be a really nice plus.
And as others have mentioned, Trail edition. Or whichever the high tuck is.

@Dave/AWE and I be capturing footage of the 2.0T as soon as the weather at the strip allows it!

So are you saying that the trail edition has drone? I am looking for something without the rear muffler and tailpipe without drone...

I certainly like the sound of the dual exhaust, but any kind of light wheeling will smash those pipes into the bumper.

Agreed with the trail version clearance video. Those dual exhaust tips are begging to be flattened out on some rocks.

Sounds and looks good, but that driving 5-70mph looks like they need the steering TSB :LOL:

Just looking at the photos it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be very quiet. Hopefully I’m wrong.

I can see the confusion. Apologies, allow me to elaborate.

The Tread Edition is so finely tuned that on the highway, one could forget there's an aftermarket configuration equipped. That's due to the 180 Technology® and its refinement capabilities.

Trail, on the other hand, is more telling there's a straight-through 3" configuration tucked up under your carriage. It's more aggressive and not as refined within the cabin. It doesn't drone, but it's aggressive.

Regarding tailpipes on the Tread Edition: they can always be easily removed when going wheeling via the two clamps. This was by design 👍
