    It is all personal preference. I like catbacks and I think duals on any truck look horrible with the exception of the new Rams with the bumper cutouts.

    Fake duals are lame.

    I just put on a Magnaflow CB, and like the new tone (not loud), but the stupid clamps have allowed the muffler to come off twice after flexing the suspension. I'm going to weld it when I get time.

    3" RevTek Leveling lift kit. 285 mud terrains. Rancho RS5000 shocks, Custom Cat back dual exhaust, K&N FLPK air cleaner kit.
    I had a custom cat back done - Magnaflow with dual exhaust. Mine come out just behind the rear tires. Slight angle. Sounds great. A bit louder then I wanted, but people think it's a V8. With the 3" lift and 33" tires it looks much bigger then a mini truck. Lol It's all about preference. What ever you like and want is what you should get.

    Back pressure shouldn't really be present in an exhaust system.

    Run duals if you want. If properly done you will only notice a change in sound.

    I'd say save yourself some $$$ and just replace the muffler while maintaining the 2 1/4" stock piping. This is assuming the stock piping is intact, of course.
