Side Exhaust for my TJ

Hey,wha's up guys.It's been a long time,and no posts.My laptop took a crap and I got a new streetbike I've been working on.
Anyways,getting to my question.
I wanted to see about doing a side exhaust,like a cherry bomb that will come out right in front of my rear wheels.What do you guys think?

Thanks

don´t do that. a sie wxhaust will be damaged very fast when you drive off the road... one simple ground contact will be enough for damging it.

Don't do it. IMO - loud exhaust annoys me on the trail, distracts from the wheeling experience, and breaks my concentration (I used to run a Cherry Bomb on my Jeep before I decided I liked 'quiet' better and went back to stock).

If you're not looking for my opinion - from my own witness on the trail; side exhaust is the first thing to get smashed once someone leaves the pavement. Your rockers are already low enough as it is - why rob more ground clearance.

I had the side exhaust on my T-bird, it never left the road and still they only lasted 6 months before I had to replace them. Off road you'll kill 'em quick. Not a good idea.

While me and odhinn were doing my tran service, I was looking at the exhaust my self. I was thinking about how cool a jeep would look like hot rodded out with the rear lifted and flame thrower side exhausts.

Altho thats for street only... lol

i tried.. was pretty disappointed since i had no space to run it there if i tried to bend a pipe i would have had to run it back from the muffler and then forward in front of the tire.. kinda kills the point. If you move everthing that might work though.. you have to cut bunch of pipe in front of the catalytic converter and if you're with out a bl you wont have any space to shuv the catalistic converter there, now i got a 2" bodylift which gave me 2 extra inches of space so i can run the catalytic converter forward far enough so i have enough space for the pipe to go in front of the tire) anyhow check out my cardomain page 2 and you will see what i'm talking about.. no tailpipe was loud as hell so i wouldn't recommend that at all. Not loud as cool loud.. loud as you will get a ticket

Well,thanks for the replies,not exactly what I wanted to hear.
I think it would sound and look good.
I also like the idea of the flame throwers,but that isn't exactly my thing and I also have a 2 yr old and 6 yr old,that would scare them to death.
I still really like the idea of of the side exhaust,I also had it on my CJ .It was nice.
I don't really spend a lot of time off road though,b/c of my two children and wife.Not to mention,it is my daily driver,so tearing up stuff is not an option for me.

If you want to make it work.. get a bodylift and move the catalistic converter forward by that bend. Get a small muffler and then you should be good to go. If you find a muffler that has the outlet on the side then that would work without even messing with the catalistic converter but i have never seen them.

Keep in mind get a quiet muffler.. With the shortened tailpipe it will be quite loud.

If it is just a mall crawler, it should not be a problem. All above opinions were based on taking your rig off road, at some point. If that is not what you bought it for, then go ahead, and put your side exiting exhaust on. What ever floats your duck.

A guy on JU did it, and integrated it into some rocker guards he fabbed up. He handled the heat somehow so the whole rocker wouldn't get real hot. He caught a lot of crap for it by other JU'ers but it was an inventive solution. Can't find the thread, but I think it was under the TJ Fab forum.

I actually just got the cherry bomb and mine and it sounds much better than I thought it would and think that it has a better sound than the flowmasters. They have no packing and sound kind of tinny. I just got the cherry bomb from ebay and the pipe from rusty's but it goes out the back. I couldnt imagine how much louder it would be on the side though.

How well does the flowmaster 50 or 40 open up the 4.0? Is it noticable?

Just the flowmaster i have no idea since i installed it with out any tail pipe so it was way too loud so i wasnt trying to feel the difference but with my engine mods it sure does feel a lot different than stock. It feels like a turbo engine now... at 2500-3000 it "spools" up. Low rpms is stock and as the rpm increases it just hits you in the back harder and harder while with stock.. Not much of a peak.
