I just got my ram 2500 v10 and I want to do a exhaust upgrade but I am not sure hat to put on it cause I have seen alot of trucks with nothing but a noisy exhaust with no tone or sound to it

The V-10s don't sound like a V-8 that is for sure. More like an old split manifold I-6 from back in the day.
What I did to mine 99 2500 4x4 with two cats & a 3" mandrel bent tailpipe, was to have a MagnaFlow muffler two into one installed. If nothing I took 90# of weight off the truck. But it sound OK for a V-10 & seems to give me a tad more pulling power. I read all kind of of ideas from true duals to 4" tailpipes you name it. But I wasn't willing to spend a small fortune on exhaust work,when I know with computer controlled vehicles you can only get so much with out a computer reprogram. I think it cost me $150 for the muffler installed.
Hope this helps

I do not have a V10 but I love the sound and power from my Gibson system, surf their website they might have something for your truck. The surf around for the best deal, I paid $400 for my SS cat back extreme duals.

NO NO. They sound loud & like crap IMHO. GlasPaks are junk. They burn out in short time. Turbo Mufflers are the thing these days. Remember these trucks need some back pressure. These aren't 1960 Muscles cars.

dude i straight piped mine into a y-pipe reducer and back up into a 3inch single...sounds sweet. nice rumble when putting around and quite in cab...but when you get on it it sounds sweet. i reduced it for sound and so its not so free flowing.

Go on you tube & check out different sounds from V10s with a few different exhaust. Then decide.
