Sorry the pics aren't that good. I didn't take them until tonight.
Was under the truck for the first time today and I think this is exactly what I'm going to do (not this year...truck is a lease and haven't decided if buying yet).

My plan will be to use a Flowmaster Y250350 Y pipe. 3.5 pipe back and likely a Magnaflow 12587 SIDO 3.5"/2.5" muffler. Option would be a second Y250350 flipped around and a SISO 3.5" muffler. Might do a Dynomax Welded if I go that route.

I'm still enjoying the sound of the stock Sport exhaust but I'll probably start laying on the required bends to do this. That section of pipe that runs under the trans pan is mashed flat all along the top so it's just not the Y pipe that's a restriction.

bones, I sent you a pm as I have a few questions. Also could you take a better picture of underneath? I want to see how they installed it and what muffler you used (offset or center outlet/inlet).

Thanks and I'm glad to hear you like it, I want to do the same thing.

PM replied to...I will get some better pics once the torrential rain here stops lol. Mine is center/center just like the stock one was. I ordered a 5x11x22 oval bodied one, check the link out I sent you for exact model/price info.

I am wanting to:

bigger tires/different rims
bully bar/brush guard on front
switch out tail lights/headlights
replace dented stock hood with a ram air hood
And I'm sure I will come up with more!
Considering removing the rear resonator for a bit more sound. I love the sound now, but would like a bit more. Do you think taking that rear resonator off will make much of a difference?

The rain finally stopped long enough for me to get a video of my new Magnaflow.
