Joe, This a very specific question for a 28 year-old truck. As much as we forum members love to answer others' questions regarding their Dodge RAM's , this may be a wait and see thread. That is to say, there may not be that many people on here with the knowledge to answer it. But, I am sure someone who is a member on this great forum will have an answer. It just might not be immediate. Good luck, brother!

Get underneath your truck with a hammer and punch. Make a number of lateral holes in the muffler. Test for sound. Add more as needed.

Otherwise, buy a Magnaflo or Flowmaster setup Go to their websites to hear what they sound like or do a youtube search. Plenty of videos to watch and hear. Beware of the dreaded 'droning' in the cabin.
