    Any muffler will fit just cut out the old one and put a new one in but no need to unless it has a hole in it or something, if its just a hanger broke then why not just re-weld it?

    X2 you should just fix the hanger and call it a day. If you really want to change the exhaust don't go the dual exhaust route, it causes a loss in power on these trucks versus a single exhaust depending on the exhaust pipe size.

    IF i were you i would ditch the pipes coming out the rear on the driver side and teh muffler which i will assume is a single in, 2 out. from there just go ahead and get another mufffler that is single in, single out and dump it over the axle, and put some sort of rolled tip on the dumped piping to gain some back pressure back. then you will be good to go.

    My current setup is gutted cats into a knock off flowmaster 40 series sumped over the axle all with factory tubing, and it sounds good!

    Thanks for the guidance! I wanted to keep the dual exhaust. I think for now I'll just go ahead and have it re-welded. Invest in a new one later when I can put a header on it as well.

    i had dual on my old 99. it was a flowmaster delta flow 50 i think, 1 in 2 out. i sounded ok but it ran crappy, lost power, i ended up going with a magnaflo dumped in front of the rear wheel. i liked that a lot

    ^ Yea duals on these trucks just dont seem to do any justice unless you like not having power :rolleyes:

    I put a cheap wallmart chrome tip on mine after the dump and it has some type or resonator looking stuff in it and it deffinatly added back to my backpressure giving me some more power back!

    I have a stock '05 Toyota muffler with two outlets and my engine has very satisfactory power. What kills your power is them hokey wide open mufflers everybody gets to have "sound"-no chambers or 1 to 2 chambers means straight thru which means power loss. Mine sounds good but not loud so I get to keep the power-I even picked up a bit extra. I hate loud anyways especially on this engine. These v6s aren't that cool sounding IMO to be louder.

    Well I have a Flowmaster 10 series single in dual out and I love it!! (I had a Magnaflow before and hated it) Didnt notice any difference with the Flowmaster except it sounds sick!! Especially when I rev match and down shift.. :drool: And I can still chirp the tires in third gear sometimes.. :D
