Quietest/smallest muffler

After I did my stretch/4-link I had to redo my exhaust. The muffler I am running right now is too loud. I need something QUIET! I mean stock jeep quiet. BUT it has to fit in the space of a small shoebox.

What's my best option?

What you need to do is run a couple mufflers. Get a bullet muffler like a spiraflo and run it upstream and then a borla or muffler of your choice in the size you need where you have room for it.

I've run a hushpower. Too loud for me. I am looking for something close to stock. And would just run the stock muffler if I could make it fit!

As has been stated, you're going to need a pair of somethings. I finished up a triangulated custom mid arm and for the same reasons, we installed a pair of very small Spintech mufflers that were less than 10" long. Very slightly louder than stock without the annoying drone of most aftermarket mufflers.

Any downside to running 2 mufflers? Never seen 2 mufflers in a single exhaust set up....

Other issue is I am having trouble fitting one muffler, now I gotta put two???

Do you have any pics of the exhaust set-up on the custom mid-arm you just finished?

Might want to consider a small muffler and a Supertrapp diffuser set at the tip. Pretty decent way to get a little extra noise reduction in a small amount of space.

I found the post, but he has the pics as attachments so I don't know how to snag them.

The first one went in front of the lower arm crossmemember and the second one went right behind where the upper arm comes up.

They are very small mufflers and very easy to get in there. There was no downside to these other than expense. If you call Spintech, they will know what to do.
