Battering Ram is on a distinguished road
Default Small exhaust upgrade

I went ahead and decided to install new thrush glasspack on my truck this weekend. The improvements were almost immediate. After about 25 miles of driving the muffler got a lot louder, shakes the cab up, and turns heads everywhere I go now. The old can measured just over 3 feet! It was disgusting. I almost couldn't believe a muffler that big existed. Maybe for farm equpiment. Anyways I highly recommend this muffler as it is aggressive but not overpowering, definitely added about 15-20 horsepower, and is extremely cheap at $20. I also through on a cherry bomb exhaust tip.

Here are the pictures!


Ewwww what is this DODGE???? YOU KIDDING ME?



THE GOODS!!

I decided on this because it was so cheap. You could do this for about $50 if you forgo my expensive taste in stainless steel band clamps.

The muffler gives off a smooth rumble, and you feel little vibration when accelerating through town. At highway speeds its pretty sedate.

If I made a video of the interior noise, the camera would probably barely pick up the exhaust note.

Thanks man! Silver on black is always a good combo. I saw a lifted black sport like yours with a silver stripe and it looked great. I would definitely put some on.
