I think that this thread should've been written a little differently. Flowmaster is good, I've had at least 3 of them in my quest to get that muscle car sound and rumble which I now have. Flowmaster does have an American Thunder system specifically for the 4.0 rangers. They sound good and are fairly priced. Maganflow is good as well and they do sound great, but they tend to be a little expensive for the working man or woman's budget. Cherry Bomb is really great, but most people pick the wrong exhaust system for their vehicle. That's what I learned during my quest, and after choosing muffler after muffler I have learned that you can get that muscle car sound if you pick your exhaust based apon what engine you have and how it's set up.

Here's what I have today. A 28 inch long cherry bomb glass pack with the stock pipe size (2 and 1/4 inch) inlet and outlet dumped about one foot behind the cab. Overall I spent around $72 dollars on my cherry bomb exhaust and it still sounds like it did when I first had it installed.

Here's what it looked like when I had it installed:



Here's what it looks like today nearly 2 years after it was installed:



Next time be careful before you rag on cherry bomb, cause I aint the only one in here that uses cherry bomb. Alot of people use cherry bomb. They've been around alot longer than Flowmaster.
LOL alright don't get your gstring in a bunch man. The ford model t's been around a lot longer than the lamborghini diablo but that doesn't make it better now does it?
I am not taking back my comment, to me the Cherry bombs are farts cans and IDK why the hell someone would dare put one on a camaro. camaro's are meant to have Borla's or Mangnaflow systems not Cherry bombs, but its whatever we all have our own tastes. as for me I am going with the Flowmaster exhaust thanks for all the suggestions people.

I just wish you worded it a little better than you did. Cherry Bomb glasspacks on a V8 burn out very quickly and basicly become strait pipes. Plus who said anything about them not being burned out before they're installed. Plus you forget that they do have over 5 different mufflers to choose from and they do have catalytic convertors too. The glaspack is what I have which on a V8 happens to be 1 of the 2 loudest you can get. The other they have is the extreme. If you can pick the right one like I did, you'll have a nice deep rumbly tone that can rival Flowmaster, Magnaflow and others. Mine does NOT sound like a fart can at all and I have the old 3.0 vulcan too. It doesn't sound ricey either.

x2 you are my hero, Glasspacks FTW. I have had Cherrybombs on everything I have owned and don't plan on ever changing. Disturbing the peace since 1967...

I had a cherry bomb at first. Sounded ok to me...... Then picked up a Flowmaster Delta 40. The Delta 40 honestly makes the cherry bomb sound like absolute crap. I just didn't realize it till after I got a quality muffler/system.

Actually it's since 1968, but thank you. Cherry Bomb has been great after I learned how to pick the right one. It took me over 3 years and thousands of dollars to figure this out.

You may have picked the right exhaust system for you, but in retro spec did you pick the right one concerning Cherry Bomb? That's where people make mistakes concerning exhaust systems. Cherry Bomb does have quality in their work and they're made here in the U.S. I have no complaints at all about cherry bomb or flowmaster either. I've had all of the major manufacturer's exhaust systems and various set ups. The one thing I do hate is the Apexi 4 inch true fart can that you see in the import section, now that one I do hate.

The last time I checked it did. But with new emission standards getting ready to come out, I don't really know. It should as long as you keep your emissions equipment up to date, or you're grandfathered in under the old emissions laws in which I am. It goes towards what year your ranger is is basicly what that means really.

Nothing against Flowmaster owners, because I do like them. But one reason I go with cherrybomb is because everybody has a flowmaster.... And pluse cherrybombs are like 1/r the price of a flowmaster. This thread could probably go on forever about how people like this and how people like that. But in all reality it comes down to personal prefrence. I belevae someone on her said go with the straight pipe, and personally I'm with him every truck I have owned I have drove with it straight piped for months at a time before putting on a muffler. I just like to be loud and obnoxious. But some people like actual tone to the exhaust. There's 1000 ways to skin a cat....i

True, very true. I like that deep toned exhaust note with a deep rumbly tone to it. It aint too loud, but still gets noticed a bit and not by the sound police either. That's what I like now adays. Plus I got tired of going to court every time I farted. There's no prepay option on exhaust tickets of any kind in any state. It's just more states are lient than others.
