    Why Pick MBRP for Your Wrangler?Wrangler owners expect a lot from their ride. Yet many exhaust manufacturer's figure they can simply pack the same generic muffler into their Jeep kits that they put on a Civic. At MBRP we designed our Jeep JK/TJ muffler to match the very real demands off-roaders have for their rigs. After many dyno runs with various muffler designs, combined with real world testing, we were able to pull 9 RWHP and 15ft/lbs out of the 3.8L V6. The unique chambered design of the muffler provides a pleasingly rich rumble at idle that builds to a civilized growl at driving speeds and a throaty roar when you push the throttle down. Unlike fiber packed straight through mufflers our chambered design can handle getting wet. Here at MBRP, we put a lot of thought into the exhaust system. The muffler remains to the rear to avoid having to reposition the evaporation canister. We tucked the muffler up as high as possible in order to provide maximum clearance while keeping it in the factory location. The heavy 16 gauge steel construction is tough enough to stand up to anything that the road, or off road, can dish out. The mirror polished T304 stainless steel tip can be easily removed for off road adventures and replaced for driving around town.

    The Best Systems Start With the Best MaterialsInstaller Series from MBRP brings you the best of both worlds. Designed and constructed to the exact same specifications as MBRP's Pro Series you can expect the same improvements in torque and horsepower and the same awesome sound as our top of the line products. The difference is the heavy duty aluminized steel construction. You save money without compromising on performance. MBRP Installer Series truly is superior to other aluminized exhaust products on the market. Heavy sixteen gauge steel is one reason. Another is that our systems have a thick protective coating of aluminum silica on the seams - an area that is often left exposed to rust. We are so certain of our Installer Series products that we back them with an industry leading 3 Year Warranty.

    Built to PerformYou made an investment in your Jeep and would never consider less than the finest aftermarket parts for it. Your MBRP performance exhaust is designed to make sure that is what you get. Aside from a stylish classic look, you can count on your MBRP cat back system to give your Jeep a rich, mellow sound. And thanks to the fully mandrel bent pipes, MBRP performance muffler and minimal bend degree angle design you can count on squeezing every ounce of torque and horsepower your engine has to offer.

    The Premium DifferenceIn an industry with its share of "commodity" exhaust products MBRP stands apart as a manufacturer of truly quality performance exhaust systems. You can see that in the way your system is packaged, the thought that goes into the design of every component, the consistent quality of the overall product and of course, the sound. The premium difference does not end there. Through our in house customer service team as well as the professionals who distribute and install our products you can count on your MBRP experience to be an enjoyable one.

    Easy InstallationMBRP systems are as much fun to install as to drive with on your Jeep. Bolt-on, no weld design makes installing this on your Jeep without hassle - an easy no hassle one to two hour project. Everything is direct fit to the OEM hangers and you get all the clamps and parts you will need, all in one box.

    Sound & StylePerformance is one thing but at MBRP we believe that appearance and sound is just as important. Every MBRP performance exhaust system has been specifically tuned to get the optimal sound from your vehicle. With our MBRP brand etched on the tips and our unmistakable styling, there's no question that you have the hottest exhaust on the road - MBRP.

      Review from MBRP Installer Series Cat-Back Exhaust (04-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ Unlimited)

      Louder than I thought it would be.

      Great product. Everything was included, very high quality material. My bolts were a little stubborn, but got my stock off pretty easily. I wished I would not have taken off the skid plate. I did not realize the entire drivetrain is supported by the skid plate. Getting it back on was tough! After got it all installed and tightened, started up the Jeep and was very surprised by the sound. It had a deep tone and pretty loud inside. I love the sound of it, especially accelerating. Great price, great product, highly recommended.

      Package came complete with all hardware, quality as expected. I installed it within 45 minutes, although I had a lift and power tools. It gives great exhaust note as well atleast 5 extra horses. Jeep drives great and I love the sound.

      Nice exhaust

      Very easy install , all the hangers (hardware) included. Wasn't impressed with the tone at first, their must be a break in period because after a couple of weeks the tone of the exhaust is great more than you would expect for a straight six cylinder very pleased. the gauge of pipe looks like it will last for years. install 2004 jeep LJ

      MBRP exhaust

      I purchased the exhaust exclusively to fit with my long arm suspension, since my long brackets rub on the OEM exhaust. I’m generally not a big fan of exhaust noise, but this exhaust actually sounds decent.

      This provides great sound to my 2000 Jeep. It did not fully match up with my resonator, so I did have to cut and buy a few extra pipe endings.

      Exhaust had a good sound, but it won't fit between the shock and the gas tank guard, using the original mounts on a 05 Wrangler.

      Was a nice and quick bolt on application.. Hardest part and that wasn't even hard, was dropping the skid plate for easier access. Love the low ruble that even a 6cyl can produce.. Totally happy overall.
