I'm looking for a new muffler. I have been for some time. I would like to have something that has a nice deep rumble to it, but not extremely loud.

Okay, not really loud at all, just something louder than stock.

Any suggestions?

I've seen a few videos on youtube, but it is really hard to tell. I'd like to get some personal experiences from you guys.

If I dont pass smog I will probably replace my whole exhaust system with a dynomax cat back.
Dynomax = crap.

I had that system installed for one year (still do, just can't afford to replace it yet). The inlet and outlet pipes are laser welded on the inside, and the inlet pipe rusted through and broke free. Meanwhile the muffler was bouncing around on the intlet pipe, which was now just a sleeve bolted to the cat. The hole in the muffler got reamed out around the inlet pipe to the point that I could just barely weld it back together. It still leaks, as I was trying to weld air half the time, but it's holding together.

My buddy had the same kit on his XJ, and after repairing mine we looked at his, and after about 4 months it was starting to rust around the inlet pipe. :thumbdown:

if you go glass pack or cherry bomb style, well you teeth will fall too loud, too deep.. too much sonic vibrations,, I say go with highflow cat, or keep the stock one, and flowmaster, or magnaflow.. I like em the sound nice.. and roar when you want em to roar and shhh in highway speeds..

Hey I am running a glasspack on mine and it is not loud at all, but I am running a longer one (which are known to be quiter) and it is quiter than some of the Jeeps with Flowmasters. It is actually not really noticeable inside at speed, just at startup and accelerating.

Now that being said I will never go that way again(it already had the glasspack when I got it) but anoughter good option is the FlowTech Afterburner muffler they have a nice tone and are inexspensive.

I bought the Muffler from Summit and had a local exhaust shop bend the pipe and do the install

I like Flowmaster and that's the only muffler of choice for my vehicles past and soon to be present.I attempted Magnaflow and thought it sounded like crap,I seem to be out numbered but then again nobody is talking crap about Flowmaster...

Try a FlowPro. Looks like a FM has a nice sound off idle (not obnoxious at all) and can't hear it cruising unless you get after it. performancepeddler.com has them quite reasonable. I got a cat, some clamps and a Flow pro and was out of their showroom for <$100

I had a Flowmaster 40 series Delta Flow on my 4.3L S-10. Nice deep sound, not too loud. And a much better price then Magnaflow...I'd recommend that or for a little less noise, a 50 series.

i got a cherry bomb on my DD, {95 Dodge Ram 1500 318 SB}
kinda loud on start up, when i first start it at school, if the doors are open it kinda sounds like a drag car.
but when im gettin on it, i can hear it through my radio, in over drive at 55 though, its just a slight rumble and i love it
running, i can hear it inside [the house]
