Any Suggestions and/or Opinions for replacement Muffler?
 
I ordered the S&B CAI yesterday and next in the Mod line will be a new Muffler. I would love to hear any and all opinions on brand. I think the muffler I have is 26".
I would really like something that clamps on and requires no welding, so I can do it myself.
I'm not wild about loud. But I wouldn't mind a little rumble. I had a Magnaflow on a Jeep Wrangler JK. It was great...of course it was a wimpy 3.8.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Other than the Mufflex kits, most all performance mufflers would be shorter, and thus would need extra pipe, and welded in. You'll have a tough time finding a muffler as long as the OE one, and if you do, it probably wouldn't sound any different.

I would do some more research on here because I've seen a plethora of threads on this, too many to point you toward one. I've read it's pretty cheap to buy the muffler and have it welded in by an exhaust shop...plus that means no chances for exhaust leaks down the road.

Mufflex is a bolt on kit and uses a magnaflow muffler and has the extension pipes already on, the come in a variety of size i believe 14", 18" and 24". I was looking into the 14" myself and heard alot of good things considering it is a DIY and takes less than a couple hours and real easy to install but on the other note, people have been complaining about the leaks and all...im gonna go with a 14" magnaflow muffler and just have it welded in. Saves a bunch of money since it would only be bout $100 for the muffler then whatever the labor of a shop costs. the mufflex cost a couple hundred bucks i think

Wow! It pays to check local prices! Mufflex was 269 online and the I have to do the work myself. I'm sitting at the mechanics right now. They are putting on my 18" Magnaflow . It's going to cost me $165 total.

^Yes. The only downfall is, the local shop more than likely doesn't use stainless steel pipe. None of shops around here do. They all use aluminized. The shop owner stated they can last 7 years (he of course was trying to sell something), and the welds will start rusting before any pipe.
