Default Dual Exhaust???

I have the dual exhaust setup on my hemi dodge. Would just replacing the muffler work just as well as a full system. I want a little better breathing without all the drone from the MDS (which I plan on leaving, gas mileage is too good).

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Depends on what you plan on doing to your truck. Full blown build, or Daily Driver?

I would be my daily driver. I just want a little more sound when I get on it. I also plan to add a CAI down the road.

What type of muffler would you recommend and how much should it run me to have it it installed?

Yes, that would help with better flow out. You'll need a CAI to really reap the benefits of better airflow.

One other mod to consider is a programmer to take advantage of the additional air.

I like the Magnaflow mufflers for their sound, quality and price point.

To avoid drone, leave your stock tailpipes and resonators on. You will get a bit more sound in the cabin and that's just the nature of the beast when you go to a better flowing muffler.

Two good quality mufflers, installed, would be around $450 to $600depending on shop rates. Peruse the Magnaflow website for mufflers. You can also hear some sound clips there.

Borla sounds very much like Magnaflow and you can hear clips at their site as well.

I avoid Flowmasters but I know they have some new, quieter, muffles out that are advertised for the new Ram pickups. You could check their website for sound clips as well.

I know going to an aftermarket muffler will increase noise, which I don't have a problem with, I just don't want that MDS drone everyone complains of (if thats possible.)

Maddog, thank you for all the helpful info, I really appreciate it.

you know that some people complain about the DRONE

I hardly ever notice it & I drive my truck for a living, most highway driving

I run the 18" Magnaflow
