Cherry Bomb

I am planning on throwing on a Cherry Bomb glasspack this weekend and I was wondering exactly what parts I will need...

Right now I am running the stock 4.0L HO exhaust and plan on keeping all the pipe, just replacing the muffler with the Cherry Bomb. Can someone please give me a shopping list of what I will need so that I will not have to make multiple trips to the auto parts store?

Thanks

I just paid $89 to have my cherry bomb removed today. Seriously, the droning and loudness got to me finally. It was only 6 months or so too.

Now it's all quiet again and I can actually hear the radio now.

Just my .02

Mine only lasted 3 months. Stock exhaust never sounded soo good! Also, I honestly think the Cherry Bomb hurt my performance, and I was running w/o the cat! Save your money, it's definitely not worth it!

the horse is dead
you will need some clamps and the best way to do it is have an exhaust shop just weld it in

but IMHO a knockoff flocrapper sounds much better thana glass pack....GP's sound like ricer mufflers on these things too
and you dont wanna be a ricer do you?

i'd buy a section of flexpipe and a few extra clamps...although welding it in would be a better call

Well I would have welded it instead of clamping it anyways, but...

I took all your advice and spent the $$$ on Dave Matthews tix for the 2 shows in West Palm Beach. A better investment IMHO after hearing all your opinions...

Thanks

Ive had my cherry bomb installed for a while now. I have another vehicle I use everyday but that has a cherry bomb also. The sound doesnt bother me at all. Everyone tells me they can hear me coming from blocks away.

For my TJ I just bought a 40 series Flowmaster on clarence at JC whitney Last night. I did not save too much money but I decided to do the flow rather than cherry bomb.

If I can get there I can wheel it!

i picked up my super 44 for only 70 bucks and had my friend who welds put it on i just have it dump out to the ground right before my rear axel loud too but it not to bad on highway speeds +1 for a great product. My friend has a cherry bomb on his 97 xj sound ok but i think the 44 sounds better
