Just installed my Magnaflow (pics and video)
 
I am new to this site, and finding info on exactly what were the bare necessities that are needed to change the stock sound of my truck was a little difficult. Most people have forked out $300+ on an entire exhaust system. I don't plan on racing or impressing the socks off all my friends, I just wanted a sound that was a.o.k. for me.

Here's how I found that sound.

I researched and found that the Ram comes with a 3'' exhaust pipe so I figured I wouldn't spend the money on an entire system from the cats back.

I found that most people here like the 14" magnaflow and I found some youtube clips and liked the sound.

I measured from the diagrams on ebay and under my truck and figured that I would need an extension.

So here's the parts and prices:

-Magnaflow 14" muffler: $50-$75 (ebay)
-3" exhaust pipe extension: $8 (autozone)
-3 - 3" exhaust clamps: $14 (autozone)

14-15mm wrench (toolbox)

Received my Magnaflow magnapack 14" muffler today. Here are the parts I used to install it.

(see pics and video below!!!!)

Sounds really good . Thats the first time I've seen those mufflers .

Cool. I just got my magnaflow. Removed the stock muffler tonight and got the extension. I have dual outs though. So tomorrow I' may be going and borrowing a pipe expander as the dual outs are smaller than the 2.5 outs on the muffler.

Sounds great. I have MagnaFlows and hope they sound half as good. I will find out on Thursday when I pick up the new truck from Mr Dearership
