Yes! I still can't decide if I want to go Fox, King, or Icon in the future... Or whatever other brand there is out there I should look at. I've decided I don't want SAWs. Just don't hear enough good things about them. I'm leaning towards Icons.

Yeah, I've seen that Icon is digressive while most others like Fox are progressive. I can't decide what would be better for me. Digressive would be smoother on the highway but rougher on the trails, while progressive would be the exact opposite.

And I second the 14" Magnaflow! I love mine. Gives a nice sound while driving around but isn't obnoxious when driving on the highway. Mine's dumped.

There is nothing wrong with my 18, just can't hear it over the stereo any more.

I like the quiet gurgle of the stock exhaust. And it's not obnoxious to my ears or anyone else's.

The only thing I will probably do is cut it off somewhere behind(?) the rear axle because the exhaust tip is just an ugly rusty looking POS. So for pure aesthetic reasons only.
