    I ran a Gibson cat-back on my 1996 Bronco. It's tone was nice and throaty. The volume was only slightly louder than stock. Others who ran Flowmasters definitely had louder trucks. MPG went up a little and I felt there was a small power increase but I had installed a K&N FIPK intake at the same time so I can't really give too much credit to either in and of itself.

    Old video of my truck. TRD intake and Gibson exhaust under load. I liked the sound.

    I have Gibson catback on my 08 Sport with a k&n cai and it has a great throaty sound when you step on the gas. I had a bit of an increase in pick up in the mid range. I would recommend Gibson!

    I've installed 2 Gibson cat-backs, stainless steel, on Ford's a 4 banger Ranger and V8 F150. Installation was straight forward and customer service excellent, the F150 was a mid-year change which affected a part, they sent another pipe (thought it was wrong), and another after we discovered the problem, all free of charge. The swept side (swept back) systems with single outlet offer a slightly deeper and more mellow sound without becoming intrusive in the cab. You'll notice at full throttle but cruising is only a little louder than stock. I've sold the F150 but still have the Ranger, still sounds as good as when I installed the system. The exhaust cans do not have any fiberglass fill, only baffling.

    Rausch Creek in PA is the best wheeling within 5 hours. Trails for all ability levels.

    I was told that they're doing King Of the Hammers trials there. :)

    Post rollcage/bedcage, pre-long travel. My fuel cell was across the country having a custom bladder installed at that point and I was running a plastic jobbie to get me by.
