Default Muffler choice

I cut the Mds off with the Bullydog so I have a couple of muffler questions. First is which muffler will give me the deepest mellow tone? Second is should I lose the resonators? Thanks

its really a personal choice. I have been listening to clips on youtube for over 2 years and still can't figure out which muffler/mufflers I want.
Since I don't have resonators its a little harder to get it so its not too loud or too quiet.

On top of other things you have to figure out if you want a true free flowing muffler or do you just want a certain sound without any kind of extra performance.

Thanks guys. I'm really just looking for a deep tone. Performance isn't that big of a deal. Don't get me wrong I love speed and have had a few heavily modded vehicles,but I drive this truck every day and just want it to look and sound good. It's hard not to look good with a Ram though!

deep muscular tone is a 5 x 11 x 22" magnaflow muffler...this isn't for the "I want the loudest muffler around" wantem loud type muffler. This is for someone who wants a deep muscular tone type muffler that oozes muscle at idle and let's you know it's there when you get on it...at regular driving and highway driving the v8 sound is rhthmic and almost soothing...I used different magnaflows as well as flowmasters and with all the driving I love to do (over 237k in my 05)...this feels like a dream to drive. I should be driving my commuter car during the week to work but I still drive my truck more than my corrolla..I actually make excuses like "what if I need a certain tool I have sitting in my truck..ok, I'll drive it today"...
