Cherry Bomb Glasspack

I bought this to quiet my jeep down a little since before it didnt have anything from the cat back. So I bolted this thing on cranked it over and it sounded great! then I got it on the highway and at around 65 mph (2000 rpm) it sound like a ricer. And is pretty loud inside the jeep. Over all I am not happy with the glasspack because Most the time my jeep is running its not ideling (the only time I like the sound) In all fairness I dont have anything coming out the tail end so that might quiet it down a tiny tiny bit but it will still be a pretty stupid sound.

I bought it for a nice deep sound at a resonable price and got that. It is not ricery IMO at all. Not even at high speeds(took it to 75). The only thing is on my xj it drones when i sit at 2000rpm's but other then that its perfect. Cab noise is minimal.

I got a Cherry Bomb Glass Pack installed with my stock exhaust and it sounds awesome and deep even with the inline 6. we just cut off one cat and the muffler and stait piped it and then added the glass pack and totally worth it.

If you are seeking a truly custom exhaust system with great sound and all the performance exhaust can offer try a Banks. If you are on a budget and want something that will give you a decent sound, some good performance and no worries on the trail this is your girl.

I ripped my muffler on a trial and needed one ASAP for inspection. I had $20 in points at autozone so the grand total for my Cherrybomb glasspack was $4. I ordered the one specifically outlined for my TJ however when I brought it home it was about 5 inches too long.

The stock muffler has a z like inlet and outlet offset and the straight through design of the cherry bomb doesn't translate perfectly. After realizing that my stock pipe was rusted to hell and bent like a SanFransico artist I high tailed it to the custom shop and had a pipe bent to my specifications. All told I spent $64 and now a have a custom exhaust.

Idle sound is aggressive and throaty, between 1200 and 1500 rpms there is a droan but once you get past that everything mellows out and is not even noticable with a radio playing.

Since my computer has adapted I have seen a 1 mpg increase in full milage and some very noticably power in the 1000 to 2000 rpm range. Before I installed the product I could let my clutch out without touching the gas and my jeep would coast forward but it couldn't get over the lip in my driveway. Now I can, so that must mean something so someone.

I had a choice of several exhuast packages from my local muffler shop. The YJ I had prior to my TJ had a Turbo muffler when I got it and I replaced it with a Flow Master 40 series. Both had a good sound but still didn't have the low growl or rumble you would expect. The Cherry Bomb gave a great low Rumble to My Tj not to mention a little more get up and Go. And you can't beat the price $55 installed. My Flow Master cost me $85 dollars. And the sound wasn't nearly as good.

i bought this cherrybomb like 2 years ago and it was intended to go onto my ranger but it got pu to the side, i got it welded on for free, it cost me $30 on jc whitney. after putting it on i noticed a drop in the fuel economy maybe like 1 less to the gallon at most, but i noticed better throttle response and more hp, im not sure how much more hp it added but if ur looking for something loud and proud cherry bomb is the way to go

For the price you can't beat it. It is a performance muffler. It sounds good.

Good for a first exhaust I guess. Save up and get a super 40 if you really want a good tone
