    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys. I'm Ryan with extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Magnaflow Black Axle-back Exhaust fitting on 2007 to 2016 JKs. I like this exhaust system for those of you who are looking for a lower exhaust note and a little more volume from your Jeep, especially with on high RPM like when emerging into traffic. Now, if tone and volume aren't that important to you, but looks are, this is still a great example. This does come in at a higher price point, but Magnaflow has always made a premium product, and this is just another example of that. Like I said, this is a premium part. The muffler is built from 16 gauge 409 stainless. The inlet pipe is two-and-a-half inch mandrel bent tubing, so it will meet right up to your factory exhaust on the Jeep, and on the outlet side, you have dual three-and-half-inch tips. The whole thing is finished off with a black high temp coat. The muffler features the street through flow design, which does a really nice job of balancing both tone and volume. Like I said, this is quality. You can really tell when you look at the weld and when you look at the finish. Speaking of that finish, if you do a lot of off-roading or if you live in a rust belt like we do, you may eventually see a little bit of surface corrosion on the exhaust. But don't worry, it won't affect the performance. Installing one of these Axle-back systems on your JK could not be any easier. There's one bolt to remove. You take down the old system and put the new one in place. The whole install should take you less than an hour. I do have a couple of install tips. If you're having trouble getting the factory system out of the rubber hangers, you can apply a little grease. It should pop right out. Another area that you may have a little issue is if you have a lot of rust on that factory clamp, you might have some trouble getting the bolt out. If that's the case, don't be afraid to cut off that clamp. The system comes with a new one so you have everything you need to get back on the road. Now this is one of the most expensive Axle-back systems we have, but like I said before, this is a quality product. You can really see the build quality when you look at the fit and the finish, and you can tell that you're getting a premium product at a premium price. So if you're looking for an exhaust system that will give you that lower exhaust note and a little bit more volume, or you just want something to dress up the look of the rear view Jeep, this is a good system for you. It's a high-quality system at a higher price point that both looks and sounds great. So that's my review of the Magnaflow Black Axleback Exhaust fitting on 2007 to 2016 JKs, and you can find it right here at extremeterrain.com

    Are the tips on this exhaust 3.5'' or 4''? I'm getting differing information from the video, the catalog, and the written description on this web page.

    • The Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust will feature two 4" tips.

    Will it work with the 2.8 CRD diesel engine on a 2016 Wrangler JK ? Thank you

    • Hello! Unfortunately this exhaust is designed for the gas engine Wrangler.

    Would it fit with an AEV rear bumper with tire carrier? And does it worsen your clearance or has anybody dented any of the two tips going off road and coming down some rocks? Really want this muffler but if it lowers my clearance or I could possibly dent any of the two tips, I wouldn't want to get it.

    • The Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust System can be adjusted during installation to ensure proper clearance of aftermarket bumpers. Magnaflow recommends at least 1/2 inch of clearance between the exhaust and bodywork. Overall clearance for the rear underside of the Jeep will be diminished with the installation of this exhaust but it should not increase the likely hood of any damage off-road.

    How would this compare to the flowmaster outlaw axle back? Which has a better sound and finish? What would you recommend?

    • The Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust will be a little quieter than the Flowmaster Outlaw Series Axle-Back Exhaust (Item J106978) found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/flowmaster-outlaw-axleback-black-tips-1217jk.html. Both feature an aggressive sounding exhaust, and better sound would come down to personal opinion. Both offer a 409 stainless steel construction which should prevent it from rusting through should you ever experience rust on the exhaust.

      Just what I was looking for

      I got tired of my jeep sounding like a wind up toy but I didnt want a super loud exaust system This kit gave me the exact deep note I was looking for without sounding like a Honda Accord. That being said, it was dinged up and scratched in some areas out of the package but I'm not too concerned with it looking pretty.

      This is how a Jeep should sound!

      Oh man - I am SO happy with this exhaust from Magnaflow! I really debated between a couple of the axle-back systems, and am really glad I landed here. This system has a truly primo sound...daily driving you can tell there's something special, but it's not overly intrusive. And when you really get on the gas, it gets plenty loud. Combine the unique sound with the look of the dual black exhaust and it really sets this Jeep apart. I love it!

      Awesome Exhaust

      This product has totally made a huge different on my jeep. I purchased the Ingen cold air intake and the Magnaflow exhaust together. I know for a fact each one complements the other. The extra pickup when leaving a stopped position and when accelerating down a long stretch of road is amazing. The sound is a great low tone and you feel the power. My gas mileage has been extended by about 5 miles as well. The hardest part of the install was removing the old exhaust. I would highly suggest getting a medium length pry bar for getting the old exhaust from the rubber hangers.

      Like everyone else said, getting the old muffler off was the hardest part. Once done, the install took minutes. I noticed acceleration increase immediately. Now, the Jeep sounds less like a rice burner and has a nice purr to her when we’re moving down the road.

      Great upgrade.. buy the wrench!

      So, on all my builds I have always upgraded to a cold air intake and a modified exhaust. This Magnflow exhaust totally filled the need for the exhaust on my 2017 JKU Sahara. Installation can be a bit challenging as the rubber exhaust hangars can be difficult. I would recommend to anyone planning on doing this job to spend the $25 on a pair of exhaust hanger pliers and some vaseline! Those hangars will slide off no problem! Sounds great and when combined with the cold air intake there is a performance and mpg increase! Highly recommended!

      2016 JKU

      The video seems to be a little louder than what it actually is on my JKU. I wonder if theirs on the video has other after market parts installed to give it that sound. For example, do they have a CAI installed or something else...? The finished product looks great. It was such a pain getting the old exhaust off, I finally had to take it to a shop to get done. There are tools out there to assist getting the hangers off, I just don’t have them.

      Great Exhaust, installation was almost flawless

      The exhaust is extremely well packed and well made. It arrived in perfect condition. There is a notch that must match up to a pin on the pipe running over the axle. Mine was misaligned. No amount of twisting or shifting either pipe would allow for them to mate properly. After spending WAY too much time I opened up the notch with and angle grinder and everything fit perfectly. Install time was about an hour — 15 minutes without the notch problem.

      great tone and a lot quieter than many of the “turbo” mufflers out there. I run a ripp black ops supercharger with long tube headers and a bunch of other upgrades on an 07 Jeep ruby. The sound is so less annoying than other mufflers I’ve used in the past. Haven’t put it back on the dyno yet but I’m not feeling like my horsepower has changed either way. It Allready makes 370 HP to the rear tires. Just glad it’s quieter.
