    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 (00-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ, Excluding Unlimited)

      Love it

      I love it, my neighbors probably don’t. Sounds good when accelerating. Decent chop once it warms up after a cold start. Gives you a deeper, more throaty Subaru type sound that rumbles and burbles when decelerating through the 1750-1250 rev range. Had it bolted on in about 15 mins, getting the old exhaust off was what took the most time. I’d recommend buying a can of VHT header paint to protect the new system. (Its $10 and I applied two-three coats. Basically the same as the black version which costs ~$60 more). Love this exhaust.

      Sounds good! Good quality exhaust for the money. Install was easy everything fit like it should. Used reciprocating saw with metal blades to cut old exhaust off. Make sure you use lots off penetrating oil on manifoldb bolts. Had to cut one manifold bolt with angle grinder.

      Perfect Fit with Throaty Sound

      Hangers lined up perfectly, as did all the clamps. I sprayed all but the tip with high heat exhaust paint before installing. Exhaust was packaged well and the tip was boxed separately to avoid damage. Definitely louder than stock, but has a nice throaty sound.

      MBRP cat-back exhaust

      Loving this exhaust. Gives a nice melllow tone for a 6 cylinder. I have seen a small increase in my gas mileage. A cold air intake and a cat-back exhaust is definitely a must have for a TJ.

      Review from MBRP Installer Series Cat-Back Exhaust (00-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ, Excluding Unlimited)

      good value

      I installed this on my 2004 TJ 4.0L. Took some time to get everything lined up, but eventually got it all installed. Sounds good with a deep rumble to it, however, not loud and obnoxious. Word of warning....if you have stock bumpers and the exhaust tip doesn't clear the bumper, your plastic bumper ends will melt. I really don't care because I am planning to replace the stock bumper eventually anyway. This project took me a bit longer to complete because I had issues getting the old muffler off (ended up cutting it off). The install of the new exhaust took less than half as long as the removal of the old exhaust, but does take some time to position and bolt up. Bottom line is that it sounds good and the price is right.

      Budget friendly exhaust

      I bought this system because of the price point and decent reviews from others. It was easy to install and fills the intended purpose of replacement cat back system well. There are better types of pipe clamps on the market but again this is a budget system so you can deal with that. I installed this on a 97 TJ with a 2.5L 4cyl. It is considerably louder than stock but that's not a bad thing.

      Review from MBRP Installer Series Cat-Back Exhaust (00-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ, Excluding Unlimited)

      Good product

      Overall the project took me 2 hours but also including some much needed cleaning on areas underneath while the stock equipment was removed. Do yourself a favor and the night before hit the bolts on the old exhaust system with some PB blaster or something to loosen up the rust and dirt. I recommend doing this on a lift to save your old exhaust and prevent cutting etc. Removing the new exhaust was simple and I believe it sounds better and throatier while not obnoxious. Performance is also slightly improved with responsiveness and slight gain in torque, it is noticeable. Combined with a cold air intake will also yield great results. Definitely a sound upgrade that you won’t regret and it also looks and sounds good while maintaining the appearance and sound of a Jeep.

      Perfect Tone

      Despite being bolt on, I needed to have a muffler shop install it because of a previous owners poor modification. Also the muffler itself was not black as advertised but I expected that from previous reviews so not a real big deal. I still give it 5 stars for sound, performance and overall look. Nice upgrade!

      Awesome!

      Very high quality exhaust with a great sound. Everything fit perfect and looks to be of superior quality. I was a little concerned when the box showed up torn open, but everything was in there. I upgraded to walker band clamps because I like them better than the u clamps that came with the kit. Overall I'm extremely happy with the kit and sound. Big improvement over stock, but not too loud and very minimal droan that I don't even notice after a few days.
