To get rid of the drone, don't shift to Tow/Haul
just drop 1 gear
on the 2009 you have gear selections
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & Drive which is 5th overdrive
5th overdrive gives you slightly better gas mileage, but also allows the 4 cylinder mode ( MDS ) to kick in, you are getting the drone while in the MDS mode
no drone in 8 cylinder mode
I shift to gear 5 while in residential areas, on the highway, i shift to Drive & set the Cruise Control

I have the 18" magnaflow muffler, it has been on the Ram since the 750 mile make, i now have 76,000 plus on it, just starting to make a bit more noise, i like it
