Default best of these for performance?

These are all good info. I'm looking to do the same and drop the stock muffler for performance and sound. Of the two performance/flow is more important than sound. I'm hoping I can squeeze out one more mpg I've already got a CAI. Which of the mufflers listed so far or otherwise would be best for me?

Any straight through muffler(dynomax, magnaflow, borla, etc) will basically be the same...

Here's mine. I just threw this together this weekend. I had an idea of what I wanted, but was trying to see how cheap it could be done. I'll add a tip to bring it out closer to the outside of the truck, and may have to tweak the tip up a little. Then eventually I'll end up swapping on a borla xr1 in place of the dynomax. For $50 I'm happy!

I had the stock muffler replaced with a flow master 40 and cut the tip off just past the resonator. I love how it sounds and it cost 150 or 170 not exactly sure.

It's really not so much that I'm cheap, It was more the hassle of dealing with autozone and my wife asking why I had to go to the parts store if I was just "looking at the exhaust"....

After driving it for a couple of days, it might be a little louder than I want. I'm hoping just running the tailpipe to the outside of the truck mellows it down. You can see in the pics, it dumps pretty much right at the frame rail, so I might be getting a little more sound back into the cab than I would like.

Buying decent quality Torque Tite clamps will lighten your wallet a good bit.
I was tempted to do the same thing as you did,but then got stupid and bought the high dollar clamps.
Only reason being my stock exhaust was still brand new,(only had the drive home from the dealer on it),so i wanted to keep the orginal exhaust as just a bolt-on for down the road,if i ever need it again.
