Jeep Wrangler owners have a few go-to upgrades when modifying their SUVs: a lift, different wheels and tires, cosmetic touches, and an exhaust system. Giving your Wrangler a bit more aggression in the noise department is one of the best upgrades you can do to it. But if you’re looking for a quality option with easy install that doesn’t break the bank, your options become slightly more limited. Luckily, MBRP has you covered with their new JL Jeep Wrangler axle back muffler bypass exhaust system.
This system gives the Wrangler a louder, more aggressive tone under acceleration. Flow is also increased with less resistance. But despite being a muffler delete, it doesn’t drone much at high way speed. It is a nice balance of aggression and volume to everyday drivability. Yes, there’s a little more drone than stock, but that’s what buyers should expect with this kind of product.
Getting rid of the muffler also decreases a significant amount of weight, and increases the rear ground clearance of the car. The standard muffler hangs low enough to be visually unappealing, so getting rid of it looks better and gives you a better departure angle.
The exhaust is made of high quality mandrel bent stainless steel, and uses all the factory mounting points. There are no modifications made to the exhaust other than unclipping the old muffler and putting the new pipe in, using the same mounting points.
All of these benefits come in at a rather low price of $123.52, making this great value for money. And if you don’t love the sound, it’s easy to take off and pop the old muffler back on. This could also make it a great option for JL Jeep Wrangler owners leasing their car that want more sound, but don’t want any trouble from the dealership.
