If you want loud...don't put a muffler in at all. I've got a straight pipe after my cat on the burb and the 350 sounds really good I think. i've got one of the pancake cats though so that cuts down some of the noise.

Do you have to have a cross over piece on your exause onetoncj? I don't know if its the same for your jeep or his truck but my burb had to have a cross over tube connecting the exaust manifolds to make it pass emissions. I would have liked to just do true dual exaust but it would have to be seasonal without the crossover.

I cut my exaust after the cat. I think that it is a little loud, espesially at highway speeds. I am not sure where the muffler is on your truck, but if the exaust is far enough away from the cab the noise might be tolerable at highway speeds.

I will end up putting a short muffler on it, but I still want to retain a nicer sound.

Crossovers are good things. Why would you not want one?
Actually, if you have the room, big single exhaust is the best.

I know crossovers are a good thing, It equals out the exaust pressure or something. I would have liked to have connected the exaust pips together further toward the back of my burb but I ended up having to get the cross over extended lower below my front driveshaft...Thats some dumb ****. The first time I took it fourwheeling at ruby I landed it right on a rock. I would have just moved the crossover back.

Well I believe my exhaust sounds awesome for a 3.5 V6. Loud raspy but mean sound. I got my muffler from a company called PowerVault.No other muffler on the market would match the sound I get out of my PV2 (specifically made for a Vehicross) Dyno tested to show a 15whp gain. Not sure if they have anything that will work for you but maybe something to look into.

I am not running duals.

Do you have an 8 cyl cause you can put anything on it and it will be loud. I have a 6.

You better be sure of what you want before you do it. I've owned obnoxious loud in plenty of vehicles, from 4 cylinder 2.3 to v8 460.. and if you do alot of driving it will wear on you really fast. Just a nice flowmaster 40 series turbo muffler or 2 of them if you do duals would be a good alternative. Won't sound as loud and raspy, but that's a good thing, that sound is crap, the nice mellow smooth but kinda loud tone is so much better. But if you want to rattle your eardrums and not hear your stereo go all out with just straight pipes I'd guess. We ran straight pipes on a built 2.8 v6 and it sounded like a Cessna... it was LOUD.

This is all IMHO of course.

Is it legal to run a muffler with no tail pipe? If i get a dual outlet flowmaster muffler will i be able to add pipes later? Would a dual outlet sound better than a single or vis?-versa? With or whitout pipes

I would say with pipes...I don't know what effect all of that exaust would have rising up to whatever the muffler is under. But I do believe it would be better with a pipe just to get it out from under the rig. Is there any other purpose for the dual outlet other than to make it LOOK like dual exaust?

Dual outlet to maybe get the exhaust out at a faster rate and more exhaust to help the flow?

i think duals look better anyway might as well spend the extra to get the pipeing. Where is the cheapest place to get pipe and to get it bent to fit my truck?

everybody's got their own opinions on where to go and what to get. I would say not to go to Muffler city. Their overpriced and they don't really do that good of a job. I got my exaust system done by them and they ended up having the pipe come out from the side of the truck about 6 inches past the body...I had to have them take it back in and cut it off..unevenly in the end. people'll post up their opinions though
