Default Mufflex DOD18M - Keep it? Trade it? Sell it?

Hello all... I'm struggling with a decision. I installed the Mufflex DOD18M on my truck about a year ago. I LOVE the sound that the muffler gives me, but going down the highway there is a drone at certain speeds. When I get the drone I just hit the TOW/HAUL button which puts my RPM's at a different pitch making it go away.
But, low and behold, the wife is tired of the sound, so I'm considering switching to the 24" or just going back to stock.
Any opinions? Will the 24" give me a drone also? Is there any interest in this 18"? Anyone wanting to trade? Tell me what you think!
Thanks guys!

Depending what you want for it I may know someone that'd buy it.

That is a great question also! I paid about $270 for it about a year ago. So, it is used. Like I said, great sound! I'll probably be totally bummed when I go back to factory, but...

If the drone you hear with the 18" is too loud then your best bet will be stock.

I also had drone with my magnaflow. Mine was a 24" and my g/f hated it so I went back to stock. Was a sad day when I lost that amazing sound, but I now I have zero drone, Hell I can hardly tell when my truck is running.

Just tell them to deal with it!!!!

My wife would put up with a little drone if needed. Just tell them how much $$$ it will cost to go back to stock lol.

She's pretty understanding, but won't let me touch the exhaust on her Citadel! She's actually even asking if it's time to trade the truck for an SRT8 Challenger. Tempting, but I'm a truck guy!

Mine didn't cost much because I was able to sell my magnaflow (to my dad, it is still in our barn . We are waiting to figure out how to go from his 2.25" to my 3"
