Here at CJs we offer a ton of different exhaust options for the JK Wrangler. In all, we've installed quite a few cat-backs on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler. We're going to change it up a bit, by installing this very unique aFe Rebel cat-back exhaust. This aFe cat-back exhaust is made of 2-1/2 inch mandrel bend stainless steel tubing, with a muffler that gets relocated towards the front of the Jeep for better ground clearance, and a dual exit tailpipe with black tips to give your Jeep a nice look, and better sound.

It comes with an extension pipe, so it can fit both the two door, and four door, and it has everything you need for an easy installation. Today we're going to install it on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler. Tools you'll need for this installation: a lift, or a jack and jack stands, 1/2 inch ratchet, 15 mm socket, 16 mm socket, 18 mm socket, 18 mm wrench, and you'll probably need an exhaust hanger removal tool.

This cat-back exhaust is pretty simple to install. We have to start off by removing the factory system, which is pretty easy. Just remove this clamp right here, on the muffler. Then remove the muffler from the two hangers. Loose the clamp with a 15 mm socket. Remove the driver's side hanger from the muffler. Then remove the rubber hanger from the frame mount. With both hangers removed, just twist the muffler and pull it off.

Come up to the front of the exhaust now, where the front pipe meets the y-pipe, and remove the clamp. Now, if you have some miles on your Jeep, this clamp be pretty hard to remove. You might want to use some penetrating lubricant. Remove the rubber hanger from the front pipe. Then there's one more hanger to remove. Then remove this rubber hanger, near the axle.

Lower this skid plate, by removing the rear two bolts, and then loosening the front too. Then come back to the back of the exhaust, and twist it to pull it off the front pipe. Bring the exhaust back, bring it around the skid plate, and then bring it forward to remove it. With the factory exhaust out of the way, you can put a clamp over the y-pipe.

If you have a four door Jeep, like us, you can use this extension pipe. But if you have a two door, just simple don't install it. AFe supplies this bracket that we have to install right up here on this cross- member. Then install the hanger plate. Then tighten the bolts with a 16 mm socket. Then there's one more hanger to install. Put it in the center holes on the rear bumper. Get the bolts to come out of the holes on the other side of the bumper, and thread the nuts on.

Tighten the bolts with a 16 mm socket, and hold the nut with an 18 mm wrench. Put the rubber hanger on the bracket that you just installed on the front of the Jeep. Put a clamp on the extension pipe. Then install the muffler. Place a clamp over the muffler, then get the over-axle pipe over the axle. Install the provided hanger on the tailpipe. Then install it onto the hanger that you mounted on the rear bumper.

Install the tailpipe into the muffler. Then get it into the final exhaust hanger. Now you can tighten all the clamps. Tighten the clamp up front first, then work your way back. Now you can install the tips. Grab both your tips, slide them over the tailpipe. Adjust them to your liking, and then tighten them down. With the exhaust fully in place, we can now reinstall the skid plate. And your installation is finished.

All right, let's hear it. Our aFe cat-back exhaust is installed. It looks really good on the back of this Jeep. I'm loving the dual black tips. It makes it sound pretty good, too. And installation's not too bad. It's only going to take about an hour and a half. And before you know it, you'll be heading off road.
