Which exhaust set up would be the best for my truck...I have a 2014 1500 5.7. quad cab 4x4. I honestly dont know where to start. I do not want something thats going to be stupid loud and annoying. I do love the stock rumble it has but want just alittle more. any thoughts? thank you

Of course "best" is subjective as far as what one hears and likes the most but this is what was "best" for my liking. http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=196923

Not stupid loud, but loud. It rumbles alright and is very "deep" sounding without any of those annoying high frequencies. I also left the resonators on which helps out with the stupid loud, lol. I believe the Borla Pro XS is a bit "tamer" than the XR-1 which I have.

Listen to some of the exhaust clips here. As Finnattic said, it's a bit subjective. I like the sound of Magnaflow mufflers myself. Others prefer Borla, Flowmaster and such.

It's really about what you like.

I like the Magnaflow for the same reasons you stated as your preferred sound. Low rumble, not intrusive in the cab, definitely will hear it when you get on it but won't drive you out of the truck just cruisin.

I just installed a Gibson system and It is very nice sounding, has no drone on the highway, and sounds like the old cars from back in the 60's and 70's. You know like Bullits car!

Another great place to view audio clips would be YouTube.... as already said though, it is VERY subjective as the audio quality can be altered by many different variables when recording (ie how close the mic is, quality of the mic, surroundings, mic positioned on the ground, at ear level.......) If you listen close, there are a few distinct differences between brands.... post up a few different options once you get the field narrowed down and we'd love to help!!!!!

I myself would suggest listening to a few clips of Flowmaster, Magnaflow, Borla, and MBRP.

I was one of the few people running an MBRP Catback on my Mustang and I LOVED it. I am most likely going with them again just from experience and quality. The sound clips I've heard are also pretty awesome!

I'm currently looking at the MBRP Pro..... looks and sounds great in my opinion. Make sure you hit up our site sponsor Bullys Performance on here. Best prices on the exhaust BY FAR!

I sent them an email for a 6" lift kit and got a quick response and LOVED the price they gave me so I might have to email them about an exhaust system.
