2Dr and muffler question

IM looking at getting an exhaust and would like to relocate it while im at it. HOWEVER I do have a 2 Dr and REALLY want to get the Dominion Offroad enalrged storage tub. This rules out re-locating the evap to the stock muffler location.

Also I want some refinement . . .so simply deleting the muffler isnt an option. Are there any mufflers small enough to fit in the 2 dr w/o relocating the evap? . . what if i had a heat shield made?


Thanks for the help

In installed the enlarged storage tub and like it.

I run the Cherry Bomb. It sounds pretty close to my wife's Rancho exhaust.

Maybe planman will confirm, but I think it is the Cherry Bomb Pro- part # 300653.

I went to my local muffler shop & told them what I wanted.

They had a good inventory of Cherry Bomb mufflers. They measured the space I had available & the pipe diameter to decide which one to use.

I think the muffler was under $40, & they charged me about 1 hour in labor for the install.

Nice, what does it sound like? I don't know what the rancho sound like and couldn't find any decent clips.

Deep and sort of loud. I like it.

For a clip, search on youtube:

my relocation of the evap can put it nowhere near the storage tub, it's over the axle. I then went with a flowmaster 40, used the old heat shield and was done with it. Nice growl.

Did your relocating force you to drill into the floor and use carriage bolts? . . I dont oppose to drilling its just that i've linexed so everything is nice and black lol . . What kit (if any) did you use?

Thanks for all the help guys . . ATM I may just cherry bomb it to see how i like it (it cheap enough why not). I love the Flowmaster 80 series I just need to figure out plumbing after that.

I know you're asking JohnL - but I relocated mine without any kit. Just used 4 stainless bolts/ washers/ lock washers (3/4" or 1"- can't remember), and about 2 ft of marine grade fuel hose. No codes/ no issues.

I'm also running a Flowmaster Hushpower II in place of the stock muffler. Everything is tucked out of harms way.

i used the woods relocation kit, but no carridge bolts. I used the same hardware as Stu. I called flowmaster and discussed which would be the best muffler for the motor, they said the 40 was a great match. Whatever you get, keep in mind that free flowing does not always equal more power. These little 3.8's need some back pressure. You don't want to lose any low end power.
