Default Keep or delete resonators?

So I traded my 2009 crew cab hemi for a 2011 fully loaded and 1/3 of the miles hemi. On the 2009 I had a 18" magnaflow muffler along with the rebuilt y-pipe in the front and I kept the resonators on. For the 2011, I am doing the same setup except I am debating on deleting the resonators. Will it make the truck a lot louder? Will it cause an annoying drone in the cab? What does everyone recommend?

Any drone you get is as a result of the shorter muffler. Deleting the resonators will create a higher volume from your exhaust. Is it ridiculous? Not really. If you go muffler delete, it's ridiculous.

Curious if you went ahead with the delete? I have been debating that as well but don't want it to get too carried away, and I love the sound my borla is putting out right now.
