Default Anyone hear of the JBA catback for the RAM?

I just found this and always loved their sound on mustangs. Wondering if anyone has heard this or has it or if it is any good. Im ordering exhaust today or tomorrow either flowmaster or this if its a good system. Also it only says to 2012 and mine is a '13. It should still work right? Seems most other systems are from 09-13 so I dont see why this wouldnt work on the '13 too...only has 1 year warranty though..

I have the JBA Catback exhaust on my 2013 Ram.
I'm quite happy with the system, nice aggressive sound.

The only difficulty I had was attaching the Y pipe by myself and getting the tips aligned, it's still not 100%
I believe I paid $500 because I had to get it shipped to Canada, for the price I am happy considering Mufflex is a bit cheaper. But part of me wishes I would have gone with the MBRP Exhaust

After seeing the quality of the MBRP over JBA, for the extra few $$$ I think its worth it. Plus the MBRP replaces all the piping all the way up to the Factory Y pipe.

I'm just not sure id like the mbrp sound as much as the jba..from the ones I've heard the mbrp is more raspy..

Other then that, I am quite happy with my JBA selection.
No drone on the highway, relatively quiet, it only wakes up when you put your foot down.

I had one fitment issue, one of the ends of the Y pipe wasnt expanded enough to slide the tailpipe into it, so I had to bust out a hammer to expand it just enough

Hmm do you think the mbrp is louder or more aggressive?....I kind of wanted a nice growl even while slow cruising and easy acceleration..or maybe I need flowmaster to achieve that? I'd rather have the mbrp or jba as I'd like to be different...will either system be able to achieve that though?

My previous set up (on my 2010) was an Aeroturbine 3030XL to replace the stock muffler + 3in to Dual 2.5" out Y pipe.
It was aggressive, had a nice growl all the time. But it was quite loud in comparison to the JBA.
