Something different (exhaust) opinions

Hey guys and gals I am new to JC.com and am getting ready to begin working on my jeep. With past veichles I have owned forums seem to be the # 1 source for good, great and sometimes not so great ideas.

I have searched this and found no answers...

What I want to do is this...

1. Cut out the rear bumper where hitch goes, buy the bazel that goes there and trim it up, just give the hole a finished look

2. Remove spare tire and run SRT style exhaust.

I will NEVER need to tow anything and the spare tire will be the only downside. What are some thoughts?

It's a great idea. It's been talked about but no-one has done it. When you do it, make sure you post up video so we can hear it. What muffler are you going to use? I say muffler because I don't think there's room for 2.

I think I am going with magnaflow.

Finding tips is becoming a pain in the rear. If I do this I want it to look as if factory did it just lik the SRT cherokee
