I see AFE has a few exhaust offerings now...


 
I think Jeep nailed the factory exhaust (aside from the fact its kinda ugly and not tucked up enough). I really dont think I would replace it at all.. much less with AFE for an insane price. Have never been impressed with their quality.
I am however interested to see what Borla has to offer... and Magnaflow for their active set-up
 
I want my exhaust quieter. Bring on the haters but I'm over it.
Honestly not totally surprised here. I still don't have mine ... but did live for four years with multiple 6.2L (thought the badge said 6.3 ... marketing!) C63's and they were loud actually louder outside at about 91dB I believe fully stock. So I can see it getting old for some folks. I loved it. My wife, less so, but just letting off the go petal made a huge difference in that car.

Watching the videos above I was surprised to see how little difference there was between valves closed and opened for sound level with the stock exhaust, versus just sound quality. All in all, this is a loud Jeep.

If the *next* version, if there is one, has the rumored straight six turbo-ed Hemi, there's no doubt that will be quieter (and likely faster), so maybe that will be a fun option for folks who are over the noise.

I'm honestly a bit concerned with what my close neighbors might think (and one of them has a not quiet Maserati).
 
I like being able to quiet the exhaust noise. Dont mind it when stepping on it hard but would hate a constant loud drone when just cruising around.

There is a fine line between having a cool sounding exhaust and just being obnoxious.

A nice low grumble and sound pops is all i need.
 
If I get a new exhaust it will primarily for the looks. I don't want it to be louder than it already is and needs to have a function on/off button too.
 
Exhaust sound is like speaker sound.....very individualized...each persons hearing is slightly different....Those AFe tips are hanging out even more than the OEM ones....good luck with that if you plan to get in the rocks...

I like the "Rock Basher" ... but at the point do a muffler delete and throw on a couple turndowns. Exact same thing.

I used to ride Harleys with a small group of guys. One of them removed his baffles. We made him ride “trail” because even we couldn’t stand the sound for very long. If he drove into an indoor garage, all of the car alarms would sound off...which, I admit, was a lot of fun. :giggle: I am perfectly happy with the sound of my stock 392.
 
I've been running a GTHaus (aka American Roar Racing) Titanium on my 700hp Giulia QV build for 3 years now and it's been flawless and GLORIOUS! As a repeat customer and enthusiast, if you want to get one of these recommend DM'ing me for info on how you can get one at discount for not much work, and I'm happy to make an intro to the right person there. Note they have the OEM exclusive for Mopar etc...the quality, testing, dyno/track etc. they do on these systems in world class, fitment is 100%, materials and craftsmanship are flawless and the sound is just unreal compared to the run of the mill stuff from borla, flowmaster, etc. Here's a link for the exhaust options and tips etc. The first run will be done end of Feb, and they have their 392 shop Jeep already under the knife getting tested. They know this engine inside and out... https://gthaus.com/product/jeep-wrangler-rublcon-392-5-7-hemi-v8-2021/

Happy to help, answer any questions, etc. It will work exactly as stock with the activation via dash button and ECU, etc. Truly glorious sound! The quiet is quiet the loud is loud... have cake and eat it too.

Side by side with borla and stock in a different but similar application:
 
So I’m dreaming a bit but recall the old side exhaust on my CJ7 with fender well headers. More of a modern twist would be something like the TRX concept truck but molded into rock rail for the 392. That’s one I’d buy!

Interested to see when they offer this. I would think they could use the factory controls and valves for the active exhaust but I guess not?
GTHaus makes some quality stuff for sure

It was so in-your-face ugly I painted the rear-facing portion of the muffler with high heat flat black paint. IMO it helps to push it visually into the background.

I have the hardtop, but in quiet mode, my exhaust is very quiet at cruise and light load. It's almost like pushing the button on noise cancelling headphones. I leave mine in performance almost all the time. At cruise even in performance mode it is quiet under light load but comes alive with any significant throttle input. I would be interested in exhaust that was even louder under load, but would like for it to still be quiet enough that I could leave it in loud mode on road trips. Would be OK if quiet mode was some louder, as right now, quiet mode is really quieter than it needs to be.
 
Thank you for your reply.
I had my Jeep in for service yesterday, and service told me that they heard that there would be NO 392 for 2023! Have you heard such rumors?
