JBA Exhaust

I am looking into the JBA Evol exhaust systems... They look nice, but I was wondering if any of you all have this system on your trucks, if so how do you like them?? Thanks

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that JBA uses a Magnaflow muffler in it's cat-back systems.

That is interesting... I had heard somewhere that Magnaflow made those mufflers but I couldn't confirm or deny.... I have heard that Magnaflows sound pretty good on our trucks....

Well I think that this may just be the system that I go with. What I have been hearing from people is that the Magnaflow mufflers give you a deeper exhaust tone, but it isn't too loud. Let the shopping begin... :)

ive been looking into this exhaust too, and have found that the JBA and Magnaflow sell for the same price too, so i would just buy which ever you get the best price on.

I was looking at getting a jba system too. I asked my local off road shop if they were any good, and they said real good. I've never seen one installed or heard one, you can download a sound clip from jbaheaders.com.
I don't know if the stainless is worth the 100$ more than the aluminized? Any opinions?

If it snows by you and they salt the roads, that extra $100 will be the best money you ever spent!! I've got a stainless cat-back on my truck and after 2 Chicago (where they salt the living **** out of the roads) winters there is not a speck of rust on it.

i talked to zoom, from GE and he lives in virgina i think he got the aluminized steel version of the JBA for 240$ from www.truckperformance.com a couple months ago, he siad the aluminized should last 4-5 years.

Latest update.... I just got my kit in from www.truckperformance.com been raining outside here all evening... Hopefully tomorrow I can get it installed. I'll try and get some pics when I am done!!! I opened up the box it came in this evening, this system looks sweet. Definately the quality is built into this product, and there is a big Magnaflow imprint on the side of the muffler.... Very Cool!!!!! I have really been getting mod fever here lately... I am thinking it is something that this site does to you!! Last week I installed the K&N, week before that I got my Discoverer ST tires.... CRAZINESS!!! lol
