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

Magnaflow Street Series
I read all the reviews on all of these exhausts. "Too loud", "Too quiet", etc. So this one for me, was absolutely perfect. The sound is a nice, subtle, deep rumble. No "civic" sound from this one. I have a KandN cold air intake as well. Looks fantastic. Had to cut a little of the pipe underneath, but that took 5 minutes with the dewalt saw. No problem.Helpful (1)

The sound is great
Love the sound this gives the Jeep. I also installed a cold air intake a year or so ago and between the two of these it sounds mean. The install took a little more work than the video showed due to the factory clamp being welded on. Once I realized it was welded on, I was able to bend it around to break the weld and then it came off. Installing the new one took around 10 minutes. Took an hour and half to remove the old.Helpful (1)

New magnaflow install
Installed my magnaflow muffler in about 2 hours. Don't be in a hurry. Use wd40 it gets in the rubber hangers better than the soap did. I first had to borrow a neighbors impact driver. This broke the nut loose otherwise dont think I could have removed it. I then removed the driver's side hanger. Struggled some using a pair of channel lock pliers with enough pressure and movement it finally came loose. Then moved to passenger side hanger. There is less space to work. I struggled enough had to rest in between attempts. I thought I would need to bring it to a muffler shop to finish. After resting I used more wd40 and just pulled in the right position and the hanger slipped out. Finally sprayed the muffler with wd40 and began moving up and down slowly a little at a time. It eventually came loose. It can be done alone but take your time. Finished install the muffler sounds great. Not loud even with top off. The wind sound is greater than any muffler sound. Super start up sound. No drone noise. Extremely pleased with adding on my jeep.Helpful (3)

Nice upgrade for sound
Install on this was very difficult due to stock exhaust being rusted, once off new exhaust went on nicely. Not rating on install, but the sound was not as much of a change as expected. Nice low tone however and drone inside car is not bad at all at high speeds. Would recommend this exhaust for a slightly lower exhaust note.Helpful (4)
I see it says fits 07-17 jk unlimited in the title. But in the description it says it fits 12-17 jk unlimited. Will it fit my 2010 jk unlimited?
The Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust will fit all 2007-2017 Wranglers.
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.
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.
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.
Magnaflow states that this exhaust will fit the 2007-2017 JEEP WRANGLERS 3.6L and 3.8L. Therefore it should fit all years for the JK and JKU models.
Yes, this is compatible with supercharger setups.
This exhaust should be fine in California with the noise laws. We do not have an exact DB reading as it can vary between the vehicle and other mods.
The Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust is compatible with 2007-18 model JKs. The video was made before the 17-18 models came out. Magnaflow's site also lists compatibility with 2007-18 models.
This system is only for JK's. Will not work with JL.
This exhaust would include everything required for install.
The Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust will fit the 2018 JK models yes.
At this time we do not offer a skid plate that will clear the Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust.
The, Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust should weigh roughly 36 pounds.
Your 2017 Wrangler Unlimited Chief Edition should feature the same exhuast as stock, where the exhaust feeds into the muffler from the left hand size, and exits out the right hand size. The Magnaflow Performance Series Black Axle-Back Exhaust will work with this set up.
