Ram 1500 exhaust
I would like to put a new muffler on my 12 1500 looking at flow master or magnaflow. I want to keep the factory duals just change the muffler and possibly take off resonators. I was thinking flow master only to keep some back pressure or will I have no issues with with either? Also any preferences on either, looking for something with some bark when I want it to but tolerable on the highway cruising. I read magnaflow doesn't have the drone that flomaster does any truth to that?

Just installed a magnaflow 18" muffler on mine last week.. perfect for me. nice rumble, but not obnoxiously loud. drones a little when you're foot is in it a bit and it's hovering around 1800 rpm, say, climbing a long hill for example... but other than that, no drone at all.

So down the highway it's not to loud or no drone with the 18?

I tried Flowmaster one time and will never use Flowmaster again.

This is my maiden Magnaflow, and it will probably not be my last. I do have the complete CB though.

Good luck.

I had the flowmaster American thunder cat back on my 2012 1500 and is sounded great a nice Rumble when you put the hammer down. I will be putting the same back on the 2013

Another question while you are all responding. Is there any reason I wouldn't just replace the y pipe while I'm changing the muffler? What are the advantages of changing it?

I put a FM 40 series on my 1500 and the drone was obnoxious so I had it changed out with a 50 series and the drone all but vanished and I love the results.
This is my 4th truck to use flowmaster on and I've always been pleased with them.
I've never tried Magnaflow before but have only heard good things.

lol keep back pressure. hahaha

I have a Mufflex system on mine. They use Magnaflow mufflers. I went with the 24" muffler because I hate the drone I've had before with louder systems.
