This is the one you want Review by Jesse
This was the cat back purchased after much searching on forums. I made the right choice.

Initially I was concerned that it would be a little too loud. After firing it up I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't as loud as I was expecting, especially after all the comments I had read about it being too obnoxious. Not true. Idle is just a bit "healthier" than stock. After having people in the car and going on a 400 mile road trip I will assure you that the idle volume and tone is just right. This system sings under medium and heavy load. Normal driving just gives you enough to know that it is there. A little throaty but no drone on the freeway. Going along an extremely steep section of highway in 5th (manual tranny) @ 2800 rpm and she sounds great. I enjoy her immensely now.

This is used in my 2015 Hard Rock in conjunction with their cold air intake. With the intake installed I could hear it make its "sucking noise" upon medium acceleration. That noise is now masked by the exhaust. With both AFE products used together the go pedal feels much lighter.

Granted, ferritic stainless (grade 409) isn't as corrosion resistant as austinitic (grade 304) but this isn't a boat application and its not a super hot header. The 304 stainless exhausts aren't as budget friendly as this and in my opinion don't give the value that this one does. I put that money towards an ARB compressor.

The clamps provided with my kit didn't work out of the box as they would not tighten down enough. I ground the welds holding the stock clamps off and reused those. That left me with one more needed. I cut the ears off one of the provided clamps leaving only the c shaped band. This was slipped under another AFE clamp and that tightened down just fine. I do not view that mod as being difficult, but you might want to have an air cut-off saw handy when you do your install.

This item normally ships from the factory. After I had ordered I learned that they were out of stock, but customer service @ Northridge told me that they had one in their stock and would ship it out. They shipped it that same day for me. Wow.

Overall this was one of the better purchases I have made for my Jeep and would do it again. (Posted on 11/19/2014)
