What's the cheapest way to get these trucks to sound good? I want to do long tubes and true dual but I'm saving for a house and if I drop a lot of cash my girlfriend will be using my nut sack for a purse...any ideas? Don't want to just dump it...even though it has crossed my mind...my truck is just way too quiet. Thinking about cutting off resonator and maybe a cherry bomb? Anyone do this with stock manifolds and converters?

The absolute cheapest way to make it sound good is to simply pick a replacement muffler and have the old one cut out and the new one welded in. You can leave the single outlet if you want....it will sound just as good as a single in/dual out setup. The most this should cost you is about $125 and that's going with a high end muffler like a Magnaflow.

Do some Youtube research and decide what you like the sound of, check around for the lowest price on that muffler, and get it ordered and installed. There are lots of good brands but popular ones around here seem to be Magnaflow, Flowmaster, Borla, Cherry Bomb, etc.

Did someone say cherry bomb? I did a muffler swap with a cherry bomb extreme and love it. Cost right over 100 bucks total. 65 for the muffler on amazon and 40 for install.

Cool Idea. Cherry bomb sounds like it would be killer.
