Not happy with the stock engine strangler installed on my 1990 waggy I decided to install a glass pack.I installed one 45 inch long 2.5 inch ID trush glass pack as a single exhaust(from summit)It works nicely, it fits and it will not wake up your neighbors. actually it is not too much louder than stock.

I didn't know you could still get those. I had a pair on my first FSJ back in 76. The tips pointed down behind the cab and would make the bed rattle rust out of the seams. :D

YUP they still make em. i used em in my younger days as well.I thought this muffler would be louder ,but i guess since it is almost four feet long it does a pretty good job of sound control .not loud or raspy at all . nice and mellow .tolerable even with your foot in it.the engine breaths nicer and doesnt set off car alarms.

Wow... the Thrush Hush... I didn't realize they were still around. I had one on my AMC Hornet as a kid (and the cigar chomping woodpecker decal too).

Thanks for the info! Forget Flowmaster... I'm going old skool next time I need exhaust!

At the risk of taking this off topic... two more things...

1. Didn't the Thrush logo used to have a woodpecker with a cigar or was it just a woodpecker? It's a speeding woodpecker now, maybe it got "PCed" up.

2. Do NOT run a Google image search for "thrush" to check the modern logo against the vintage logo. I'm not sure what disease shows up, but it is nasty.:thumbsdown:

Actually, you probably shouldnt do an image search on wood peckers either.

There you go, my middle aged mind playing tricks on me again...

I think a thrush is a type of woodpecker but I'll be darned if I'm using Google again after my experience this morning... I think my eyes are permanently scarred.

Thrush is the chicken- pox virus that flares up after you've had pox. My father-in-law had this problem and it was horrible.

I think you're thinking of shingles (Varicella zoster). Thrush is caused by a yeast (fungus, Candida albicans).

advance auto parts are selling thrush glasspacks. i was gonna use one but i wanted a single 3" exhaust and in the end wound up getting a dual 2.5" with 12" packs instead. still got a nice rumble to it :D

There are lots of different thrushes that are birds, but they're not woodpeckers (in case you get the urge to google, wood thrush or varied thrush are safe:) )

I hope you want it to be louder than it currently is, because it will keep getting louder as the fiberglass burns away.

Oh yeah, the woodpecker with the stokie was originally Clay Smith Cams logo.

:cool:

Has anyone used the Thrush welded mufflers? How do they sound?
