Angry Got my new truck, installed mufflex DOD14M, and it's too quiet!?!?

Hello everybody!

I'm new to the forum, and after taking a break from the ram line, my last one being a 2009 2500 diesel that I sold in about a year, I couldn't resist and
I got a 2012 hemi, because I am a big fan of their Express package. I love my truck, I got a basic ST package because I wanted some extra money left over for mods I'm married, therefore responsibilities come first, and I was just being smart but I can't complain, I'm much into the fancy stuff, I want a truck not a
Luxury car..

So I bought some things. A peragon cover which I was worried about in the beginning but now love, some nerf bars, a k&n Cai which was worth every penny, then got to the exhaust. I saw the mufflex read all the threads, and decided to go to the loudest one the dod14m.. And..

Well...

It's too quiet.. I've heard people saying it drones it may be too loud.. The website itself says it's aggressive.. But to me its just not there unless I gun it. Other than that, it's kinda blah. And I'm conservative, I didn't want loud and obnoxious by any means, but I'm still a little taken back bevauae it's SO much less than I expected. Anybody had this problem? The hemi engine is a beast, without a muffler on it sounds wild, but after i hooked everything on, all the sound went downs from a 10 to a 2... is it because of the resonators? Or is it stil breaking in? I have less than 50 miles in town on it.. Or am
I just used to hearing that Diesel engine?? Please advise if you have any input! Thank you!

Well the 14 isn't loud to me either BUT it will get louder with 500 miles or so. I want to remove the resonators as well and add a set of 5 inch tips.

Lose the resonator, makes a huge difference. I felt the same way with the 14 until i cut the resonator off.

Like mentioned, if you want more noise, either get rid of the resonators, or sell the 14" and buy their muffler delete kit. I would keep the resonators and run the muffler delete. That will give you a cleaner/deeper sound.

Welcome to the forum,
This forum is full of great looking trucks; packed with great mod ideas and there are loads of knowledgeable and experienced people here.

There is nothing more I can add about the exhaust except that you could look at e-cutouts.

AND - We all like pix! Got any to share?

Enjoy the Z!
