To get rid of the drone, don't shift to Tow/Haul
just drop 1 gear
on the 2009 you have gear selections
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & Drive which is 5th overdrive
5th overdrive gives you slightly better gas mileage, but also allows the 4 cylinder mode ( MDS ) to kick in, you are getting the drone while in the MDS mode
no drone in 8 cylinder mode
I shift to gear 5 while in residential areas, on the highway, i shift to Drive & set the Cruise Control

I have the 18" magnaflow muffler, it has been on the Ram since the 750 mile make, i now have 76,000 plus on it, just starting to make a bit more noise, i like it

I actually have the MDS turned off with my Diablo tuner. The drone comes at about 72 mph in 5th.
Switching back to my stock will not cost anything because I didn't listen to her and throw the stock muffler away! See? It pays not to listen sometime!

I had a 24" magnaflow welded in and the only drone I get is pulling my camper uphill. I always drive with MDS disabled because it drives better and get no better mileage. Glad I didn't go with the 18". The 24 is just enough rumble for me. I did try driving with MDS on with the maggie and did get some drone but not too bad.

5Hole, now I wish I could find someone that wanted to trade me their 24" for my 18". I'm really dreading going all the way back to stock, but I am ready to quiet it down a little, maybe just not ALL the way!

LOL

I have the utmost respect for my wife, however, she'd never give me crap for my muffler or "make" me change it lol...

I have a Dynomax SuperTurbo and I have no drone. I think it's about as loud as the DOD18 when I get on it, but quiet like the 24 when I'm driving normally. A lot of people are on the Magnaflow bandwagon, but many other mufflers are great options. Most truck owners don't care about weight, but it also weights 6lbs. less than the Magnaflow 18.

how does it exit? I had drone with my maggie when it exited in stock position..then had it dumped after axle..it got much quieter and eliminated the drone totally for me..
