My opinion: Loud and unbearable. Don't do it.

I agree. I ran one for 3 months. At first it was cool, but that got old REAL quick. The stock exhaust never sounded soo good!

DONT DO IT!

x2, are u meaning the glasspack or actual muffler?? cause the muffler by itself, well isn't much louder than stock. at idle u wouldn't know the difference. now the glasspack, well i don't like the way it sounds on a straight 6, but that's just me. everyone likes different things.

I ran the Cherry Bomb muffler for about 6 mo. before I got annoyed and replaced it with a stock one. It isn't that impressive and gets old after a while.

x2..well, ive just had the exhaust dumped after the cat. im putting a cherrybomb on it to give it a little more growl. it sounds great in my opinion. ive got the glass pack and ill be dumping it before the axle. stock is waaay to quiet for me.

well what do you want out of your muffler? louder? a straight through design? a long lasting one?

My friends dump before the axle catches just about everything offroad... He did a 90 degree angle 45 dump out... Not too sure how you're doing it but he's pretty much bent every piece of exhaust on his jeep from hitting rocks and other stuff.
