Hi Y'all!

Looking to put a new muffler on my 18 JLUS. Looking at the Flowmaster Force II, Magnaflow MF, and the Borla ATAK. Looking for a good deep sound.... but don't want to wake the neighbors up (if ya know what I mean...) Any suggestions? I keep hearing about annoying droning at speed... definitely DO NOT want that. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

I've always been partial to Borla, though I don't have one (yet). They're a great company and I've always loved what I've gotten from them in the past.

No one seems to be mentioning the Flo Pro. That one sounds good to my ear, just cannot find it in stock.

As someone that ran dynomax on my xj and loved it. Im going to be running the dynomax muffler delete kit. gives plenty room under the jeep and surprisingly doesnt drone (which was my main concern of not having a muffler). but if you are not a fan of something like that, the borla was my other choice.

Are any of those listed high clearance mufflers? If not, anyone recommend a good one?

I got the dynomax muffler delete for less than $80 on amazon. Provides a lot of space, not too loud, and heck it was less than $80! Very easy install, goes well with the K&n intake

Yeah but there's definitely a drone. If I could find a small muffler that was in the middle between stock noise level and muffler-less, I'd be interested

OTOH there is a ton of space under there w the muffler gone ...I'm wondering if I could build brackets to store one of the new ARB hydraulic jacks....

I used a red cherry bomb glass pack with the delete pipe sounds great and all the clearance you would want

I like that... installed where? Just before the delete pipe? Did you shorten the factory system to fit it? Got pics?
