For the G Wagon off road community that has long been wary of the low hanging exhaust (arguably the lowest point on the truck besides the lockers themselves), we have finally found an exhaust system that raises the clearance of the muffler and exhaust tips! This 304 Stainless Steel Catback System raises the muffler 2 inches from stock and the exhaust tips 4 inches from the factory set up! The lowest point on the entire system is the flange that connects it to the cats and remainder of the factory exhaust.
While the shiny AMG tips and other aftermarket exhaust options are flashy, can boost performance, and offer other benefits from the stock system, many of them still hang low and will make even the bravest off roader hesitate to take these beasts down a trail. For those looking to improve off road capability and raise ground clearance of the G, this catback system is a must!
The MBRP Catback System offers a broader/healthier exhaust note - somewhat similar to stock but more wholesome sounding.
Here is the before and after exhaust notes on the 2014 G550 "Jack Wagon":
While it is believed that this easier breathing exhaust system offers some performance benefits, a before and after dyno has not been measured. Increased HP and improved fuel economy are both possibilities with this system.
The utilization of 304 Stainless Steel benefits the system further by minimizing rust/corrosion onto the exhaust - something many G owners have also noticed on the factory system.
T304 Stainless Steel
Welded On Hangers
No Tip Needed
Fits all 2012-2018 models and G55 AMG models with dual exhaust outlets (dumps out driver and passenger) and some non AMG models prior to 2012 that have the "Sport Exhaust" option like these. Although nearly a "bolt-on" application, approximately 1-2 inches may need to be cut off of the front of the tailpipe section and the 4 slits on that end should be extended the same length. From there, this tailpipe section can be clamped over the muffler assembly and the system can be bolted onto the truck.
For 2011 and older non AMG models that do not have the optional "sport exhaust package" with driver and passenger side exhaust exits, it is necessary to cut off and remove the resonators, mufflers, and exhaust tips from the factory system. All that will remain is the catalytic converters at the front of the truck and a portion of the exhaust pipe just after that. From there, a new hanger bracket will need to be added and an adapter to run the appropriate flange will be required. Alternatively, you may choose to weld this on. Professional Installation recommended.
Although not required in all situations, you may also find it beneficial to use 6 new 8x1.25 (60mm) metric hex flange bolts and nuts to install this system. Many of the factory bolts will be rusted and locked into the flanges and rather than trying to reuse the old ones, removing those and using a new set will make the process smoother.
