I have the B&B and the build quality is very good. And its loud. If you take the % of problems compared to units sold the problems are few. Even if the seam breaks you can replace with a different muffler. The unit is beautiful, large tips, mirror like finish on the entire system. Good luck

Get the B&B and when those half ass mufflers go replace them with Magnaflows and you will get a roar that resembles a small block Nascar.

Take a look at the Zoomers exhaust (http://www.zoomersexhaust.com/truck_suv_cat-back_jeep_cherokee_srt8.asp), I got to hear a 6.1 SRT with this system yesterday, and it was AWESOME.

It was a bunch louder than the Magnaflow system, with a very agressive tone.

Lots of people with the Chargers and 300's have installed this manufacturers system without any quality problems, too.

I would get zoomers but i HATE the tips.

I have B&B exhaust. It's now seasoned, and sounds like a house got up and moved. The system is super hot. I would recommend it for sound for quality. The performance is strong especially on launchs and WOT. It's beefy with no drone.

My 2 cents worth...

I think I am going with the B&B or the new Borla exhaust when it comes out

Options to consider. 1) already mentioned - Borla; I've never heard a bad sounding car with borla, but it's a unique sound...Like it or hate it.
2) Have you considered removing the resonators on the magnaflow setup? 3) Doug's and other brands make mechanical and electric cutouts. Dougs come in a pair for around $560. Touch of a toggle switch at a light and boom = open header. I had the 3 wingnut caps on my cutouts and it took about 1 minute to take the caps off and put them back on. Hand tighten is all you ever need, but you have to get on the ground. The wingnut cutouts are maybe around $70 plus most shops will put them on for around the same price. If you go the cutout way, you will always have the option to go back to quiet.

See now this man knows what he is talking about, 3" is the way to go with an X pipe, no DOUBT! This is what I have.

If anyone was at the track yesterday you can hear me launch from the outer staging area where we all line up and hang out!

Alright guys i have been holding out but I have the borla on my truck now. It souds mean. I of course got the loud system and it comes with these massive 5 inch tips. I had the BB loud option on before and heads did not turn the way they turn now. It sounds awesome and it is loud. I have not taken pics or videos because I have not had much time but I will try to get some pics up. As for the video I will try to figure it out because I have never really done it before. And I do still have my BB and it is for sale P.M. me is interested.

what do you guys think about cutting out my first set of mufflers on my maganflow????

Crank

When I got my BBs on I was talking to the guy and he said that deleting the front mufflers would make the system louder. You might want to double check though

magnaflow all the way. its barely louder than stock but none the less a great quality product... not to mention it looks nice.
