    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Pypes High Clearance Catback Exhaust, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This exhaust will fit on both your two-door and your four-door JK, however on a two-door you will have to do a little bit more trimming. Most catback exhaust systems are designed to provide you with a lower and louder exhaust note, especially one like this that removes your factory resonator and muffler in place of this much smaller muffler. Now the sound and the volume that you get out of your engine is very much going to be dependent on what year your Jeep is, and whether you have the 3.8-liter or the 3.6-liter motor. A system like this is specifically designed to be high clearance, so it gets rid of all that factory piping and muffler and tucks everything up out of the way of trail obstacles. Now this system is a little bit less expensive than some other high clearance systems on the market, and when you take a look at it, it is very utilitarian. You can see a lot of the marks on the piping from the benders. There's no fancy polished tip or anything like that, but it definitely gets the job done and it does it at a lower price than a lot of the other systems out there. This system is built out of two and a half inch diameter 304 stainless, which means the material is going to be fairly resistant to rust and corrosion, but you can expect to see a little bit of surface rust. It's not the highest quality material out there, but it's also not going to be low quality and completely rust out on you. But this is one way that Pypes is able to keep the cost of this system down a little bit. This system includes all of the hangers and clamps that you need to get it installed in the Jeep. And like I said before, you will have to do a little bit of trimming of the mid pipe, whether you're installing it on a two-door or a four-door JK. However, those of you with the two-door JK will have to do a little bit more cutting. Those of you who have done a lot of exhaust work in the past know that things can get rusty, and removing your factory system can be the most difficult part of an installation. So I would definitely recommend soaking all of the bolts, clamps, and hangers well in advance of getting started with a good penetrating oil to give you the best chance of everything coming apart. Pypes gives you very clear instructions on how to get this system installed on the Jeep, and I would recommend following those instructions carefully because it's gonna to give you the best chance of everything lining up and fitting the first time. Once you have that factory system unbolted and out of the way, you'll actually start by hanging the tailpipe. Then, install the muffler, and then take a measurement or probably three or four of them to make sure that you cut the mid pipe to the exact length that you need it. Once the pipe is cut down, you can install it in the system using all of the included clamps, and all of those factory hangers will hold everything into place. The system does include one additional hanger to help hold up some of the additional weight of your new system. The whole installation could take you as little as an hour if your factory exhaust system is rust-free, or a little bit longer if you have to fight with it a bit. You won't need any specialty tools to get this installed, but having a pry bar handy to get rid of some of those rubber hangers is definitely useful. Now, I said before that this system is sort of no frills. As I mentioned, you can see some of the bend marks on the pipe, it doesn't come with a fancy polished tip, and it is 304 stainless instead of a 409 or a different grade. But all of those things keep the price of this system down a little bit, and in my opinion, this is a really fair price for what you get. It tucks everything up out of the way and gives your exhaust a really nice tone all for a really fair price. So, whether you're just looking to change up the tone of your exhaust and get some more volume out of it, or you're somebody who goes off road and either already smashed your muffler or exhaust tip, or you think you might, this is a really nice system that's not only gonna give you the sound and volume that you're after, but also tuck everything up out of the way. And the best part about it is it does it all at a really reasonable cost. So that's my review of the Pypes High Clearance Catback Exhaust, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find it right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

      Great Product for the price!

      The finish on the exhaust is great. I have a four door 2008 Sahara sounds great on the jeep, I personally did not think the pypes was all that loud. Only complaint was the center hanger hits the frame and at low idle rattles.

      Great exhaust, with a little modification

      I ordered this exhaust after repeatily hitting my muffler on rocks and ledges and also pinching the tip shut a few times. The price was right so I went for it. Install was easy and straight forward. It took less than 30 minutes after getting the stock exhaust off. It was a little loud once I got it installed but I thought that I could live with it. That was until I loaded the jeep down for a weekend camping trip with a RTT, fridge and all the other camping equipment. The drone at 75mph was horrible and I could barely hear myself think, let alone the kids in the back seat. When I got home I cut out the resonator from the stock exhaust and installed it in front of the Pypes muffler. Now it has a great tone and volume. It'll still get loud at wide open throttle but is fairly quiet the rest of the time. Also the drone is completely gone.

      Exhaust system cat back

      Easy install, just a little louder than I like. I only had 1800 miles on my Jeep, my exhaust came apart pretty easy. Took almost an hour to remove old and replace with this new exhaust . Kit had everything I needed except one rubber hanger. ( used one of my old ones )

      Pypes High Clearance Cat-Back

      Easy install and had no problem getting the stock exhaust off, I took my time and it took a little over an hour. As far as sound I like it and listening to videos online does not do this exhaust justice.Priced right and the back end no longer has that tanked stock exhaust in the back getting all banged up.

      Clearance and look

      I like the amount of clearance it gives. Saves you money on muffler armor with it being tucked up and out of the way and it gives the jeep (nine is a 08 rubicon) a cleaner appearance at the rear. None of this kit hangs below the framerail. Install time dependa on how rusted your old exhaust is.

      Good exhaust system

      Like others have said, removing the stock exhaust was the hardest part - it took 2 hours to remove. The install on a 2-door JK is more complicated - I had to do two cuts of the mid pipe due to the tailpipe hitting my after market bumper (LoD). I ended cutting the mid-pipe to 11.5". The exhaust is a little too loud. Sounds nice at idle and low RPMs, but anything over 3000 RPMs is too load. Getting used to it however. Two days after the install, it did fine on the trail over Kingston Peak and Yankee Hill (in Colorado)

      Pypes Hi clearance on 2 door

      First off the exhaust system has a much more aggressive low note than stock. Two doors do require trimming in the midpipe, and I recommend trying to preserve one stock hanger just in case. Using lubricatinf oil a week before is helpful, but its just as easy to grind off the old exhaust system instead of having to deal with bolts. Install took about 45 minutes including removal and install... exhaust sounds terrific and can’t beat the price for the quality

      Awesome sound for the price !

      One of the easiest exhausts I’ve ever done. Good directions that explain how to install for even the most inexperienced mechanics. Great sound and adds a really nice rumble! Also really nice they give you new exhaust hangars because you will more than likely end up cutting one to get it off.

      Great product at a fantastic price.

      My only note is taking off the old exhaust was a serious pain. Definitely soak all connections and hangers in penetrating oil at least an hour before beginning. Once I had the stock exhaust off it took maybe 25 to 30 minutes to install the pypes system.

      Looks great

      I like how this exhaust looks and the clearance it provides but the sound is not pleasing. After just over 1000 miles on this system it sounds like an Italian sport bike and not a Jeep. Maybe I will get use to it some day. At least at this price I will not feel too terrible replacing it one day.
