Default Magnaflow and Cherry Bomb

After bringing the '98 Ram out of retirement of 3 years, I'm fixing it up some getting it ready for spring and towing the pop up. Did all the flushes, ball joints, shocks, upholstered the front seats and so on and so forth.

The existing exhaust still works but I would enjoy doing a cat back dual exhaust on it. I found an on line vendor that has a complete system with a Magnaflow XL3 muffler for a darn good price it looks like. Having said that, as I listen and listen to folks whom post sound videos on this muffler I must say, its still to loud for my taste.

Now I was thinking....what if I add into the mix a short glass pack (Cherry Bomb etc.) near the spare tire before the end of the pipe run? Wouldn't that be like a resonator effect? Make it a touch quieter and maybe getting rid of that darn drone noise at highway cruise?

I don't want the Dynomax VT muffler with that valve either. Anyway, I'm open to all ideas and thoughts! Thanks folks...
