i don't know if you like it loud in the cab or not. i ran mine just past the axle and then put a down turn in right after the axle so its hidden because its so ugly i also had to do a custom hanger job around that cherry bomb

right now i like the sound. It doesn't sound like some ridiculous ricer it just sounds like a v8 and has more of a grumble to it and its not to much noise in the cab so i can still hear my music. not to mention i already have a lot of road noise from the tires. I'm happy with it

i just found out that the cherry bomb muffler is more than likely illegal here,so my second choice is the flowmaster muffler instead i guess?

i have a thrust glasspackon mine. Well i did until i wanted to claim a parking spot being guarded by a frozen snow mound today.
I had mine dumped under the cab. You could look straight down in between the cab and bed and just see the end of the muffler.
I didn't think it was that loud, or that it sounded good. But i let a buddy drive it out to lunch and i could hear him coming back, and it is louder then i thought, and sounded rather decent.
So... try it out, they are cheap anyways

check out my thread, my set-up is more on the quiet side though. . . cherry bomb or flowmaster is going to be louder, but i drive too much to listen to exhaust sounds, i have xm radio with a $2000.00 stereo system LOL
