Smile Ideas for putting duals on my truck...

Hello everyone! I am looking at putting duals on my truck here soon after I get it back from the dealership. Have to take it in to have the exhaust manifold bolts replaced as I have seen several people have had a problem with on here. I don't know what brand to purchase or what has the best sounds so I'm looking for any info, tips, or hints. Any help would be much appreciated. I do know, well just recently found out, that I cannot run true duals on my truck due to where the placement of the gas tank is. I was told that I would have to have duals run on one side and then let them split from eachother from the muffler, is this true? What I am looking for is something with a good deep mellow tone. I don't want that deafening sound that racks off everytime I'm coming down a hill or something, just a good smooth muscle sound. Again, any help or hints would be much appreciated!

Magnaflow sells a complete kit, muffler and tailpipes. Magnaflow mufflers are second to none. There are other quality mufflers that flow well and sound good too, flowmaster is NOT one of them

I was afraid the 'duals' in the thread title was refering to tires and not exhaust.

I would go with magnaflow. I got the muffler and is sounds amazing. Smooth, deep and mellow. Not at all blaring or rough sounding.

I have heard good things about Magnaflow I just wasn't sure about true duals due to where the placement of the gas tank is. As soon as I get my truck back from when I take it to the dealership I will be taking it to have Magnaflows put on it with 3 inch chrome tips. I have had a couple people tell me that I would be better off putting the extra money into have it done with stainless steel rather than the aluminum type pipe they use. True? Once I get them I will let you all know and thanks for the help guys!

Pretty sure the magna flow is stainless.
It's not true dual, it's only muffler back. Replacing the y with the magnaflow y is a good idea too

I did not know that. I will most likely go with magnaflow. Again, thanks for the information! Do most magnaflow mufflers sound good on a RAM or is there a certain size that sounds better?

Thumbs up Magnaflow Is 1st Class

I just put Magnaflow catback duals on my `11 RCSB 5.7. It's all 409 stainless (magnetic) except for the 3.5" tips which are higher quality stainless (304 I think). They are available with a 14" muffler (loud), a 18" muffler (moderate), or a 22" muffler (quiet rumble, until you gas it). I got the 22. They are all straight-through designs for free-flow and mine installed easily by myself in my home garage. These catbacks won't wear out anytime soon either. Magnaflow is not cheap but offers really good quality with nice, smooth mandrel bends, not muffler-shop crush bends that can inhibit gas flow. Good luck!

Awesome install!!! I am definitely going with Magnaflow! Probably go with either a 14 or 18 inch muffler. I don't want it to loud but want it to be I guess what you could say an ear catcher haha. Just a good deep tone. Thanks for your help and these pics of the install are very helpful! Good advice! Again, thanks!

I know this is kind of derailing the thread but has anyone tried the side exit duel exhaust from magnaflow? As far as I can tell it's duel from the muffler back and has two tips exiting in front of the passenger rear tire.
