I just put this on an now I hear what gear I’m in. When cruising at normal speed you don’t hear anything. No drone.I completely disagree. For $119 you get a pipe that is mandrel bent specifically to fit your Jeep with a nice polished tip welded on - a muffler shop would charge more than that to make. When combined with the K&N CAI, there is improved horsepower and I have noticed no loss of torque. It also creates additional ground clearance and cuts weight getting rid of that bulky stock muffler. Yes, above 3,500 rpms it can get loud but that only happens when you intentionally want it too. How many times are you sustaining that kind of rpm going down the highway? Under 3,500 the note is very mellow and it doesn't drone in the cabin - even with a soft top and I have the 2 door model. All this with less than an hour worth of work...
From my viewpoint, it could very well be said that any money spent in excess of $119 to modify the JL exhaust is a waste money! We can argue over tone all day long - its a matter of preference at the end of the day. From a performance standpoint - I would bet there is not a statistical difference between the performance gains between brands: flowmaster, borla, magnaflow, aFe, etc.
From a dead stop to cruising speed you no longer need to look at the tach or wonder what gear you’re in. You can hear it and it is wonderful.
If you’re wanting to spend $400 to $600 for a tuned pipe that runs through baffles to make it sound like a truck then this solution ain’t for ya. Oh yeah, not having a suitcase hanging under the tail, which this eliminates, is also a bonus.
Take it for what it’s worth from someone with experience vs. those with opinions and no experience. Which this forum seems to collect a lot of; more opinions than experience.
