Merideth: If you're in search of a better look and sound than your factory exhaust system has to offer, this MagnaFlow Street Series Dual Rear Exit Exhaust System with the Black Tips will be a great pick for your 2020 and newer 3.6-liter Gladiator. Now, this system will open up a lot of airflow, increasing performance, MPG, and creating an aggressive tone to your Gladiator when it comes to sound. Now, speaking of sound level, I'm gonna give this a two out of five on the loudness meter, with one being completely stock and five being incredibly loud.The straight-through style, 24-inch muffler, and 3-inch mandrel-bent tubing will eliminate most of the restriction that your factory system brought to the table, creating a more aggressive tone without a crazy amount of volume. Now, even though the muffler is more of a performance option, it will still do a great job at deadening some of that sound for the cab preventing a lot of drone and creating a very comfortable cab environment.Not only are you gonna get some great sound with this, but the double wall 4-inch black tips mounted right underneath the rear bumper will turn some heads and allow the sound to be heard on both sides making your presence known. This will also be made of quality stainless steel materials for optimal rust resistance and the rear portion is coated in a black powder coat finish to protect it just that much more while also creating an aggressive appearance.Now, when it comes to pricing for this, you'll be looking at roughly $1,300, making this more of a premium choice. Now, there are a couple things about this exhaust that will have a one-up when it comes to more performance, like a full 3-inch tubing compared to a smaller 2.5-inch that won't offer as much flow as this choice. I also like the fact that this keeps the sound level a little lower while still getting a deep and rich tone and almost no drone at all while some other systems may add a little bit more volume.Not to mention this will be made of high-quality stainless steel and will have large black 4-inch tips when some other budget-friendly competitors will have a college tip or a smaller tip, or even an aluminized steel build that's very similar to the factory materials. Now, overall, I think if you're in search of a quality exhaust to up the sound and performance on your 3.6-liter and look good while doing it, then this is it.Now, install will be pretty straightforward as well coming in at a one out of three wrenches on the difficult meter, taking you about two hours to get the job done with the right hand tools. Now, one of our guys in the shop is gonna walk you through that process step by step. So that wraps it up for me. Let's go ahead and get into the install.Man: The tools you're gonna need for this installation include an impact gun, a ratchet or an electric ratchet, a socket extension, 10, 13, and 15 and 18-millimeter deep sockets, gloves, EyePro, a 13-millimeter wrench, and lubrication. What's up, everybody? Today, we have a cat-back exhaust system for our '20 Gladiator. And we previously did the uninstall and we're gonna show you that footage now, then I'll be back to show you how to install it step by step.Eric: Okay, guys, first step obviously is we're gonna have to remove our factory exhaust. Now, we have our Gladiator up on a lift to give you guys some better angles to show you exactly what we're doing underneath the Jeep. And the way we're gonna do this is gonna preserve our factory exhaust. If you don't care about your factory exhaust, it might be easier just to cut it off, but we are gonna show you how to get this off while preserving the piping. So, let's go ahead and get started.All right, guys. First thing I'm gonna do is I'm gonna remove the skid plate here and that's so we can drop the front end of the exhaust down and it'll make it a little bit easier to kind of work its way out. The factory exhaust is basically one piece from the Y-pipe all the way back to the tailpipe. So what we're first gonna do is we have a 13-mil bolt or a nut right here we're gonna remove, and then we have four 18-millimeter bolts here, and then 2 up front here that we're gonna remove, and that'll let us get the skid plate down.Like I said, guys, that one we just did was a 13-millimeter and the next 4 are all gonna be 18-millimeter sockets you're gonna need. All right, guys. Now, before I do the front two, make sure you're supporting it with your hand because once you loosen these, the skid plate's gonna wanna drop on you. All right, guys. Now this point back is what we're gonna be removing. So, this clamp here, we're gonna loosen. You're gonna need a 13-mil socket for this ball clamp.Now, unlike a regular flat clamp, these ball clamps have a kind of a curved edge that kind of cup around the end of the flange here. So, you have to loosen it quite a bit in order to slide this out eventually. So, we have that pretty good loose, so we're gonna move to the next step. All right, guys. Now we're gonna pull back on this lock tab. This is just kind of to prevent the clamp from sliding at all. So, just get a screwdriver in there. Pull that back.All right, guys. Now we're right near the tailpipe and this is the rearmost hanger. We're gonna remove this bracket because it is the one bracket that is pointing in an opposite direction from the other hangers further forward on the exhaust. I'm gonna use a 13-mil sock on these two bolts as well.All right, guys. Now just to get it out of our way, we're gonna pull this hanger off. You're gonna have to pull it out a little bit and rotate it down. There's this little tab right here that hooks into the frame rail. So, you need to get it away from there. You should be able to just pull this out like that. All right, guys. Now go ahead and assemble the tool that comes with your Jeep. We're going to lower our spare tire. Get that out of the way. And then also remove the spare tire guard to finish getting out our exhaust pipe.Now, this tool basically goes into a plastic sleeve that's behind the bumper here. Once you get that in and you can't twist it by hand, then you know you're on the...it's kind of like a bolt back in there that the end of this tool goes on and we're gonna use this just like a socket wrench. And then the lug wrench here has a square opening in it. Put that in the end here. All right. With a bunch of slack, let out, guys. You don't wanna drop it all the way to the ground. Wanna be able to get a hand underneath your tire. Lift your tire up.And there's a black bracket the tire rests on, slide it up the cable, and get it through the lug hole. All right, guys. Now to remove the heat shield that protects our spare tire, you're gonna have 5 bolts that are all 10-millimeter. There's three up here that are gonna be very hard if not impossible for you guys to see on camera here, but we're gonna take those three out first.All right. Then we have the last two right here. Again, 10-millimeter. All right, guys. Now at this step, we only have two hangers that are holding our exhaust pipe up and they are both pointing towards the front, which means with the help of my friend back here, we're gonna slide the entire pipe backwards out of these two hangers and then drop it down and actually pull it forward to clear the rear axle.Man: Okay. So, we're ready to start installing our MagnaFlow dual exhaust and we're gonna get started up by the front of the Jeep at that cat and we're gonna install our muffler there first. So, let's get started. We got our MagnaFlow muffler and we're gonna attach it right here to the Y-pipe. Using the factory clamp, I'm actually gonna take the clamp off of here and slide it onto the muffler first and then attach it to the pipe, fastening it down with my 13-millimeter socket.Now we got our mid pipe out of our MagnaFlow kit and we also grabbed the hanger that we removed during uninstall. So, we're gonna slide that on to the hanger of our MagnaFlow pipe. Make sure it's facing the right way as you can see, the feet pointing towards the front of the truck once you put it up. Grab one of the supplied clamps, slide that over your pipe. And you kind of have to route it over the axle a little bit, and then you can slide it into place on your muffler.All right. Once you got it slid all the way onto your muffler, just lift it up a little bit so you can access the holes in order to mount the hanger. All right. And always make sure you got those in by a few threads by hand. Now we can tighten these down using our 13-millimeter socket. And grab your 15-millimeter socket so we can tighten down the clamps. Now, I am leaving these a little bit loose, all the clamps I'm tightening right now, just leaving them a little bit loose so we have room to adjust the exhaust as needed.All right. At this point, we're gonna grab our other factory hanger, slide that over. And then that's why we leave the clamps loose there just so we can move this around and adjust it in order to line everything up. Grab your 13-millimeter socket. Now we need another clamp. I'm actually gonna...I think it'll be easiest to position it with the bolt facing this way. You could flip it around if you wanted to, whatever makes it easier for you. And then we're gonna put our Y-pipe here. And this is what makes this system a dual exhaust right here.Once that's all in place, grab your 15-millimeter socket to tighten this clamp down. In preparation for the passenger-side exhaust pipe, we have to grab the supplied hanger that we're gonna install into the frame. And there's a couple of pieces, this hanger plate here, the isolator, and a little fastener, and the bolt. So, first thing we wanna do, if your isolator isn't installed on the hanger, you're gonna wanna get some lubricant and just spray down both holes on the isolator just to make it easier to put everything together.So, as you can see, our isolator is on here, once you do that, we're gonna go to the frame and place this up there and fasten it down. We're at the back of the passenger side of the frame here. And if you locate these two holes right here and right in the middle, if you come to the side of the frame, this is the hole where we're gonna be mounting our U-nut. So, position the U-nut this way actually, slide in to the bottom hole there, and push it up till it clicks in. All right. So we're using this center hole to mount our hanger bracket.Slide the bolt through the hole and into the U-nut. And just tighten this down just hand tight because we're gonna have to be able to move this whole bracket around in order to fit the exhaust pipe. So, you wanna be able to spin it almost the whole way around. So that'll be good right there. All right. Now, we've got our passenger-side tailpipe, also grab one of the clamps included with the kit. We're gonna slide that on over our pipe.And also you can identify the passenger-side tailpipe by the longer bracket that it has welded to it. We're gonna maneuver our pipes around here. You might have to actually, you know, pull this down a little bit so you can clear the frame in order to slide this pipe on. All right. Once you got that slid on, let's slide over to the bracket that we installed for the hanger. And again, you have to maneuver this around a little bit in order to make everything fit into place. Slide your isolator over your tailpipe hanger. And you're good to go and we'll go through and tighten this up after we have it all lined up properly.Now we got our driver-side tailpipe, and just like the other side, went ahead and slid over one of the clamps and then slid on our factory bracket that we removed earlier. Slide that onto the Y-pipe all the way so it's seated. Then you gotta kind of maneuver the pipes around in order to get your bracket in place. Make sure the hooks are positioned properly. Once you get the bracket into the frame, take the factory hardware. You kind of gotta push up on the whole thing in order to line up your holes.Once you get it lined up, you can go ahead and thread in those bolts by hand, just a few threads. Now that that's secure and in place, I'm gonna go ahead and just tighten these brackets down just enough so they kind of stay in place, but also so I can adjust them a little bit. And to tighten these down, again, we're using our 15-millimeter socket.All right. The exhaust is all together. I'm gonna go ahead and line this all up and position everything where I want it aesthetically and also so it's not hitting anything under the car. And then I'm gonna go through and comb through all the bolts and nuts that I have loosened, make sure they're all tightened properly. And then we're gonna go take it for test drive. Now that we got both our tailpipes on, you can go ahead and tighten down this bracket. And to do so, you're gonna need a 13-millimeter wrench. I'm using a ratcheting wrench just to make things a little easier. As you can see, the bracket's kind of in the way. That's why we need to use a wrench here. And as I'm tightening, I'm just pushing this up on the tailpipe just to get it nice and high and tucked in.That's gonna wrap up this review and install of our MagnaFlow Street Series Dual Exhaust System with Black Tips that's rear-exiting for your '20 and newer Gladiator JT.
