I just Bought a 2002 dodge ram 1500 slt sport 4.7 v8. its a gorgeous truck, sounds great but I want to beef up the exhaust system on it. What is the best exhaust system I can get for this truck to make it sound mean. Without spending an arm and a leg on it.

P.s. what are the major recurring issues that this type of truck has that I should be forewarned about?

I had that exact truck before I bought my 2010, I had a flowmaster system on it with a k&n intake, sounded good. The only problem I had was with front suspension parts breaking, but I only put 50,000 miles on it in the 6 years i had it.

Depends on how loud ya want it. Basically, the longer the case, the quieter the muffler.

A 14" Mufflex will be a lot louder than a 22" Magnaflow.

It's hard for someone to pick an exhaust system for someone else. Luckily there are a LOT of sound clips here and on the internet you can listen to.

I didn't want really loud (been there, done that) and I like the Magnaflow sound so I went with there 18" long single in/dual out unit.

But in all reality, you are gonna have to pick what sounds good to you!

Default Thanks!

that sounds actually what I will do, off the top of your head do you know how much it should run me to get it installed?

the only other problem that I have with the truck is that the back window latch is broken. anyone know how I could fix this without getting the whole window replaced. its the clip itself that's on the sliding window that's missing. any ideas or suggestions are welcome, thanks again

In the thread below, I have a clip of my 18" dumped magnaflow to give you an idea of what that sounds like on a 4.7 liter.
