Default JBA catback

I got a pretty good deal on a JBA 40-1529 catback to put on my 05 Ram and am curious if anybody knows how these sound. I can't find much info about them. What would it be comparable to?

I guess not that it matters since I bought it already, but I would like to know what to expect.

Nuff' said, really.

Just do it.

I've had everything soaking so hopefully the stock exhaust comes off without breaking stuff. I got it today actually, and looked down the muffler and it looks like a stepped perforated core tube so we'll see. If anything, I loved the Aeroturbine 3030xl on my old 4.7 so I'll just put one of those in place of the muffler if I don't like this.

Can't be much worse than that massive factory thing haha. I'm thinking it will sound similar to something like a Gibson, which I'm ok. Now if only our temps would get above 0, I'll go crawl under it.

Oh, I'm assuming the factory stuff is some form of stainless too? It looks pretty good for 9 years in MN, but it still is rusty and I'm afraid about taking it apart. It's so quiet right now haha.

Here is a clip directly from the JBA site:

http://www.jbaheaders.com/detail_exh...asp?id=40-1536

Just look for the RAM link right below the site after you paste the link.

But, really, like others have said: What you like is good enough.

I have the JBA Catback on my truck ('13) and I really enjoy the sound.

That sound clip gets me nowhere.

Anyways, I got it on today and I'm very happy with it. Kind of reminds me a Magnaflow setup on my buddy's 05 but not quite as loud. It's pretty tame, and virtually as quiet as stock on the highway.
