Review & Install Video
This Magnaflow Rock Crawler exhaust is for those of you with the 2012 and up 2-door JK that are looking to change up the sound of your Jeep, as well as provide some additional clearance and have less tubing underneath the Wrangler to get banged up when you're on the rocks. I am gonna give this a one-out-of-three wrenches. All you're going to need to do is remove your factory exhaust system and bolt this one in place. There's no cutting, there's no welding, there's nothing difficult about this install. Give yourself around two hours to get this installed, maybe a little bit less if you don't have any rust on your JK. This system will replace both the factory resonator and the factory muffler with just one smaller bullet-style muffler. So, again, have some additional clearance, and tuck up everything out of the way so you have less of a chance of bashing things on the rocks. As with any exhaust system, this is going to open up your engine a little bit, let it breathe a little bit better, so you might get a little bit better throttle response, a little better MPG, but this is really going to be about the sound. And, because this eliminates both the factory resonator and muffler in place of just one smaller muffler, this is going to be one of the louder systems on the market. Now, if it had less of a tailpipe dumped in front of the axle it would be even louder. This tailpipe system does mellow things out just a little bit, but it gives it a really nice sound, something that I really like. So again, this is gonna replace a couple of [inaudible] components in place of one bullet-style muffler here, and you are going to have all of the piping to have your outlet behind the rear axle. The Off-Road Pro system from Magnaflow does dump in front of the axle. That is gonna be a little louder, eliminate even more piping. This system, overall, is by a company that we all know, Magnaflow. They've been making exhausts for a long time. They make a really high-quality product. This is going to be a stainless exhaust system, everything fits together really well. You can tell by the bends, by the welds, that this is a very well-built system out of a very high-quality material. But, all of that also means it's going to be a little bit more expensive than some of the others on the market. If you have the budget or you like the way this sounds, I think it's gonna be a nice option.As far as the install goes, I am gonna give this a one-out-of-three wrenches. The most difficult thing you're gonna run into is any sort of rust that you might have on that factory exhaust system. So, I definitely recommend spraying all of the clamps, all of the nuts, bolts, and even the hangers, with a good penetrating oil, well before you get started with this installation. It's gonna make it that much easier to take everything apart. So, you can start from the back, removing your muffler, then removing the rest of the piping and resonator from the catalytic converter collectors, all the way back, getting everything out of the way. Then, when installing this system, you're gonna actually start at the front by the [inaudible], installing this small extension pipe here, then the muffler, then your over-axle pipe, and finally your outlet tailpipe section. This system does come with all the clamps that you're gonna need to get it installed on the Jeep. Give yourself around two hours to get this installed, maybe a little bit less if you don't have any rust on your JK. And, with some traditional hand tools, you can get this done in your driveway.With Magnaflow, you are going to be paying a little bit more for the quality of materials and quality of construction, and this system comes in at right around $460, which is going to be the higher end of the price range for an exhaust system like this. But, again, I think it gives you really great sound, it gives you functionality of having less piping, less stuff to get banged up on the trail. So, if you're looking for something that you can take off-road, give you some sound, I think that this is a really nice option and it's a very high build-quality, as long as you have the budget for it.So, if you're looking for more growl and to have less stuff to get banged up on the rocks, I definitely recommend taking a look at this Magnaflow Rock Crawler exhaust system for your 2012 and up JK, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
