    Cool TUCKING UP the TAIL END on JET : Dynomax JL Wrangler Muffler Elimination

    Not gonna lie, we actually love the sound of the OE muffler on the JL Wrangler and it pained us to do this. But, after hitting the muffler countless times and breaking 3 exhaust hangers in the process, it was time to address its massive size. Needless to say, we tucked up JET's tail end by removing the muffler and installing a Dynomax Muffler Elimination Pipe. And, while I can't say that I'm exactly thrilled with how our exhaust sounds, it isn't horrible and we do have a lot more clearance in the back now. Here are a few shots of what it looks like installed.

    Nice! No more exhaust hangers needed! Lol.

    Does it drone a lot like this or just loud like the old pre axle dump for the jk?

    On acceleration, it's definitely louder but nothing too bad. I think it's the tone that bugs me the most. Fortunately, on the highway pushing 2400 rpm, it isn't so noticeable.

    Fortunately, it doesn't seem to have a drone or at least, one that would bug the hell out of me and make me want to go back to stock. We'll have to give it more time and testing to know for sure though.

    That's a good exit point for the tailpipe. Better than where the JK's dump - right ahead of the rear axle. Probably much less drone. Mine is borderline annoying on long trips. I end up wearing wireless headphones.

    Oh, believe me, if there were a drone, I would pull this thing off and reinstall the OE muffler. So far, at highway speeds, all seems okay. I can definitely hear that it sounds different but it's not horrible. I think I notice the sound most on startup/idle and when heavy on the throttle.

    I wonder what a race bullet would do to the tone?

    I'd have to think it'd help but you just can't make a fiddle sound like a cello.

    I’m one of those weird people that likes how a straight piped 3.6 sounds. I’ve been running no muffler on mine for almost two years now.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. We know all about your fondness of 3.6 inch straight pipes.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
