Review & Install Video
I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the MBRP Axle-Back Dual Rear Exit Exhaust fitting all 2007 to 2017 JKs. Today, we're gonna talk about the construction and the installation of this exhaust, as well as how it sounds.
This axle-back system is for those of you who are looking to replace your factory muffler, either because it rusted out, or you crushed it on the trail, or maybe you're just looking for some more volume out of your V6. Either way, this system will provide a lower exhaust note, a little bit more exhaust volume, and you're also going to get a visual change on the back of your Jeep having the dual outlet system versus the single pipe of your factory system. This is going to be right around the middle of the road as far as axle-back exhaust prices go, and it's a pretty solid system.
This system is built from mandrel-bent tubing that is an aluminized stainless, so it's gonna hold up pretty well in the weather, however not quite as well as the system that is fully 409 or 304 stainless. However, the tips that come with this system are 304 highly polished stainless, so they'll continue to look good for a good, long time. You can expect to get some surface rust on the rest of this system, being that it is an aluminized stainless, especially if you live in an area where they use a lot of salt on the road in the winter like we do.
Now, this system from MBRP is a little bit unique from some of the other axle-backs that we see because it does come in a few different pieces. You have the MBRP muffler here, you'll have two outlet pipes and two tips, as well as an inlet pipe, and all of those pieces get individually clamped together. Now, once you do have everything clamped together, it will use the factory exhaust hangers to get in place, and you won't have to cut anything, making installation really easy. The system will give you a slightly lower exhaust note, and a little bit more exhaust volume than you're used to with your factory muffler.
So to get this system installed, all you need to do is remove one clamp and two exhaust hangers to get your factory muffler out of the way. Now, if you've ever done exhaust work before, you'll know that exhausts can get rusty, so I would recommend spraying that factory clamp well ahead of time, and also spraying your factory rubber hangers. It'll make getting that factory system out of the way that much easier. Once that system is completely removed, you can go ahead and install your new one.
I would recommend installing the inlet pipe and this single outlet pipe, of course with the clamps loose, then you can hang them up in place using these two factory exhaust hangers, and finally install your second outlet pipe with its clamp. Once you have everything hung in the Jeep, you can make sure that you have it adjusted exactly the way you want it and the tips pointing in the same direction at the same angle before you go ahead and tighten down all your clamps. The whole installation process for this system shouldn't take you more than an hour, and you won't need any specialty tools, just a good set of sockets.
As I mentioned before, this system is in the middle of the road as far as axle-back systems for your Jeep go. I would expect this one to be a little bit on the lower end of the price range because it is aluminized steel, so it will be a little bit less of an expensive material than a 304 or 409 stainless would be. The fact that this system comes in a couple of different pieces isn't a huge deterrent, but coming out of the box, you do have a little bit more assembly to do, so again, I would expect it to be on the lower end of the price range.
Now, there are a lot of other axle-back systems out there, and a lot of them will give you greater round and similar sound out of your V6. A system like this is a good option if you just wanna replace your factory system and you don't have the need for a high-clearance, off-road, rock-crawling exhaust system. So if you're looking to get a little bit more sound out of your V6, and you wanna swap out the muffler for one that has dual exits to give you a little bit more style as well, I would definitely recommend taking a look at this system from MBRP.
So that's my review of the MBRP axle-back dual rear exit exhaust fitting all 2007 to 2017 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
