Default Exhaust question

Hello
I'm new and been searching for some exhaust and was looking into the 14 inch mufflex but have been reading that they leak. My questions if I buy it and have it welded is that good because the mufflex is expensive. Or do I just buy the 14 inch magnaflow muffler and have that welded in there from the beginning. But my thing is it hard to have the pipes fitted to keep the exhaust straight and even. My friend has an exhaust shop and will do it for free just have to pick the setup. If so what's the magnaflow part number or the one I need is it a magnaflow 14 inch 3 inch inlet and 2.5 outlet or 2.25 outlet

Thanks for the help!

If you are going to weld it in just get the magnaflow muffler and save the money. Either way will be fine though. If he has an exhaust shop he can fit it up.

That is the correct muffler for your truck.

They are both stainless steel, one is just polished to a mirror finish, the other is satin. IMO don't get polished because it's a muffler that's under your truck so why waste the money...but if you want to have a pretty muffler the polished will look like a gem under there.

Yeah stock is single 3" to dual 2.25". Get the single 3" to dual 2.5" and the exhaust shop will reduce it to fit.
