Well, that just helped me decide on what to do for exhaust, lol.

How do I know if my truck has MDS? Do these trucks have torque management like the newer Chevy trucks do?

I think MDS is a feature on the 5.7L engines but I'm not sure. Heck, I'm not sure if mine has it or if it is kicking in or how to tell if it is kicking in. lol

mds is only with 06 years and newer 5.7 hemi 1500's...2500's don't have it.

if you want it really loud, consider cutouts...i wanted it really quiet in the cab so i went with a 22" mag, but, if I'm in the mood for loud, open the cutouts and go nascar.. nice to have choices..

I installed a Magnaflow single in/dual out muffler (P/N 12288 http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/universalmuffler.asp) with new tailpipes and tips. I like the sound as it's no obtrusive in the cab when cruising but when you open it up, folks turn and look.

I don't have MDS on my MegaCab so no huge drone issues are present. I get just a bit of resonance around 1900 - 2100 RPM in steady state cruise but it's not annoying. Kinda sounds good.
