Default Need opinions on what to do - 2001 2500 5.9

Just picked up a 2001 Ram 2500 with the 5.9 V8 and I'm trying to figure out what to do for an exhaust. I would just take it to a shop, however there is no one in my area and I can't have the truck down for more than a day. I'm capable of installing something myself I just don't know where to start. Most of my experience in performance mods until this point has been on the diesel side of things. I'm not looking to make huge mods on this truck, just want to make it run a little more efficiently and maybe free up some power. Any thoughts on a good system and a good place to purchase from?

I forgot to mention, I'm not looking for something extremely loud, just a nice duals system with a good mild tone. Thanks for any and all suggestions!

check the Magnaflow website
i believe most systems can be bolted on, then when you are happy with it, get it welded or not
with that engine even glass packs would sound nice, for a year or so, then they tend to get louder
