Default Flowmaster on a pre-MDS Dodge

From what I've read on here, a lot of members don't go with Flowmasters because of the drone caused by the MDS. As I understand it, my 04 doesn't have MDS. I love the flowmaster sound. Do flowmasters not work well with Dodge pickups in general, or is it just the incompatability with MDS?

I've heard Flows on earlier dodges and, while they are louder than other offerings, they sound good. My neighbor has Flowmaster duals on his 360 powered '97 and it sounds sweet.

Any aftermarket exhaust upgrade without resonators on an MDS equipped truck will sound bad inside when MDS kicks in.

Since Flowmaster now has three levels of sound available, I'd check out some of their soundclips to see if any one of them sound better to you than the others.

I have a flowmaster on my '05. I wish I went with magnaflow. When i get the money I'm switching it over. There is no drone, but it doesnt have the sound I'm looking for at lower RPM. I really have to mash the throttle to hear it.

My previous 06, Hemi had the Flowmaster with dual-outs and chrome tips. I went with one series milder than recommended for the truck and was very pleased. Just enough sound for my wife to complain but not the neighbors.
