Hmmm...tough call. What sounds good to some don't sound good to someone else. It's a pretty subjective decision.

However, it depends on what you want. Flowmaster sounds great as does Magnaflow. I prefer the Magnaflow sound but that's a personal choice.

Gibson sounds really good but they are dang expensive.

I suggest you go to some of the mfgr's websites. Most of them have sound clips of their systems on your vehicle.

Here's a link to the Magnaflow site and their vids for the HEMI powered Dodge trucks:

http://www.magnaflow.com/04sound/04trucks.asp

Here's a system from Flowmaster that will fit your truck:

I'd poke around a bit on the Flowmaster site to see if they have any video or sound clips.

And check out our local vendors here when you pick one. They have some great deals!

Yeah I'm in the same boat, looking for dual pipes to come out on the corners, I like Flowmaster's sound but I'm curious what kind of set up is being used, not just the brand, are they 40's 44's, are there any true dual, most that I see seem to be 1 in 2 out systems. And are most of you guys using 2 mufflers or 1? Thanks in advance for all of the help.

I have always been partial to Glass Packs, but in many towns they will get you ticketed. I have also had the magnaflow and the flowmaster, and too me, the flowmaster has them all beat. You could also check out the cherry bomb vortex. It sounds great as well. What type of exhaust... hum, that is a good question.

That's what I'm thinking, just changing the muffler and keeping the stock pipe since it is already 3"
