Default Magnaflow 18" - 2013 Ram

Hey all,
Its been a while since my last post and have recently upgraded to a 2013 sport crew cab. So far it is sporting a 4" lift, 35" Toyo MT tires with 20" XD wheels and fender flares. Thought I would keep you all posted since I have ordered a new Magnaflow today (Part #12288) and some bigger 5" tips for a better finish. Really looking forward to hearing a rumble again.

Looking at ordering the S&B intake for it in the very near future and waiting patiently for the 2013 tunes to come out.
What are your opinions on y-pipe upgrade? I will be sending the truck to the shop in the next week or two for exhaust work.
Is it worth it?

Is that a 14"? I think I'm going to go with the Mufflex 14" kit with the. 5" tips also! The s&b cai looks to be very well built and a nice design! Have you checked out the Vararam air grabber for the 4th gens, looks pretty sweet as well!

I went with the 18" muffler as it seems to be the happy medium between rumble and noise.

I have looked into the Vararam but have mixed emotions on it. Ordered the S&B today though after reading through some reviews and it should be here next week.

I hate waiting...

I did not think much of the Y-pipe upgrade until I saw pics of a stock one cut in half showing howmuch the pipe is crimped. It's downright terrible, it has to be robbing power..Is it a necessity, no but it is on my mod list.
