Default Gibson Dual Extreme Split Side 6566 - debating...

Wife and I have been discussing exhausts. The plan was to save a little cash and get a new muffler. Then my wife saw an exhaust on a truck the other day which looks like the Gibson dual extreme split side exhaust. Summit has it for $478 w/ free shipping and a $25 rebate. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/GIB-6566/ She likes it and it looks good. It says the tailpipe diameter is 2 1/4" w/ 4" tip. Full stainless. Looks and sound are subjective, I know. I've heard good things about Gibson. Obviously I want the rumble at idle and when getting on it, never complain about more power, and don't want the drone. If anyone has any experience on this particular exhaust, I'd love to hear. I've done the search and heard people like Gibson, just seeing if anyone has anything new to add. I'm just ready to go mod happy on Thunder. Lift kit, wheels/tires, and more to come, hopefully sooner than later.

I personally like the Gibson sound. Nice burble at idle, not to intrusive in the cab and great sound when you get on it.

Any aftermarket catback will drone unless you put some resonators on the back end.

Doing a look online research, I've also seen some have replaced the Gibson muffler w/ a Flowmaster. My goal isn't to buy and rebuild...DOH! The muffler replacement for the stock system definitely hangs w/ me. I do like the split rear but need to see what a custom setup would run. Guessing pricey. Heard Magnaflow makes one but can't find it. Found MBRP makes one, but I'm not familary w/ them at all.

did you decide to go with this? It looks good, does it come out before or after the rear wheels?
thanks.
