Default A Few New Small Mods (pics/video).

I recently added a Flowmaster Super 44 to my 2011 1500 Laramie. It's Part #:8430452, 3'' in 2.5'' dual out. The video is OK, but it sounds a lot better in person. I get a little evil grin every time I start it up. It doesn't add any performance (that I can tell with my butt dyno)), just an awesome sound! At $89, it's a nice cheap mod to get that Hemi rumble.

Here's a link to the video:

I also added new side steps (Aries Oval Nerf Bars), and a shortie antenna (EuroStye 13''). Next will be a tonneau cover, but I'm still saving for it.

Welded in? Any exhaust adapters needed for correct fitment? I was just going to get the Flowmaster direct fit muffler but that was ~$400

Yes, it has to be welded in. A good muffler shop should be able to do it without any adapters. They charged me $40, but other people say they paid $70-$80 on average. I don't know which muffler your looking at, but if it's just for the aggressive sound, I wouldn't spend $400. At $400, I'd just add the difference and get an entire cat-back to get the sound and some added performance.

^^^ I agree. Just get a weld in. So much cheaper and it still removable with a saws all.
