Default something louder

I have a magnaflow 14 now but was looking for something louder. Is there anything out there that i could swap out to make my truck any louder. I still want to have that deep sound but just want it to be a bit louder. Thought about getting a cutout but didnt know how it would sound. Yall have any suggestions.

Cutout is the way to go. Awesome sound.

So i guess i have one of the loudest mufflers avaliable. The only thing that scares me from a cutout would be over time would have an exhaust leak cause if i was to get one i would have one that was electric so i wouldn't have to keep crawling underneath the truck.

That ^^^^ is a valid point. I have friends who have cutouts and are continually dealing with leaks.

Now...how about a Cherry Bomb or the shortest Flowmaster they make?

I've been running my e cutout for about four years with no leaks. If you get a good cutout and weld it in there should be no leaks. Just can't cheap out and get one of those under $100 cutouts.

Was very happy with my DMH cutout. no leaks and i had mine 99% closed. Removed the cutout pipe when the motor got destroyed from when i lost my drive shaft.

always go for Dynomax bullets or spin techs. those are pretty high on the decibel scale.

Also i thought about getting rid of my muffler and just straight pipe it. Not sure how that would sound. Also will it help at all if i take the resonators off i still have them on each side. not sure what purpose they serve anyway since they are all the way back at the back behind the muffler.
