It doesnt sound like a ricer, but yet it doesnt sound like a 350 either, it has some rumble, and is kinda drony on long rides..

got one on my XJ, sounds just fine to me, no rice, but also not a mean rumble. a little bit louder then a stock muffler, IMHO

plus, couldnt beat the price. paid $35 for it brand new

its not ricey. nice grumble to it. It tends to drone at higher rpms but when i mean drone its once again not ricey. Deffinately worth 35$ and if you ever mess it up on the trail its easy to replace haha.

I have a cherry bomb. Sounds pretty good but I need to turn the stereo up pretty loud on the highway. Of course my removable doors don't seal as well as they used to... Go for it.

i scored a cherry bomb off a bud of mine for $15. If you dont have a lot of money and want loud sound you should do it. I cut off my tail pipe about two inches off the back of the bomb and its pretty loud and drones a bit at certain speeds.
