    heres some pics and a short video shot with my sub-par camera quality sucks and doesn't do the exhaust any justice but so far i love it. hardly and cab drone except when climbing a hill or accelerating hard. havent had a chance to hear it passing by cause i wont let anyone drive my baby but my friend says it sounds real clean nice deep tone.

    maybe just a little. the truck just feels like it accelerates just a little easier now. i knew it wouldnt be a huge gain just did a bunch of research and liked it the best. got it from autoanything 419.00 shipped to my door. kit fit perfect. longest part was prepping it and painting did it over a 2 day period. took about 25 mins to install by myself in the driveway.

    yes. just the section from the muffler to the tip. not a big fan of chrome. badges and decals will be coming off when it warms up and repainted.

    just got to run my truck on the freeway and my previous thoughts about performance gains are wrong. i dont have any numbers to support any real gain in hp or torque but when i opened her up to merge on the freeway it moved. really got in the rpm's and the intake/exhaust sounds incredible. according to my butt dyno it felt like 10+ hp but at least a few were gained im sure and every gear pulled hard. very satisfied with my choice in exhaust and would highly recomend it to anyone who is looking to put on a cat back. my next mod will be headers. i love the tone of the exhaust now and dont want to change it too much, so im asking for some opinions. im wondering if i get dt short pipes and kept the rear cats if i would still get decent gains or do i have to bite the bullet and ditch all 4 cats. in a year or so probabally around 15k i will put a blower on it so im also looking for the best options for that down the road. any input is appreciated. thans

    Hey Outlaw, I put one of those Bank's Monsters on my 2008 last year. It's nice. All Stainless!! Seems to me that it drives better especially on the hyway. It also makes a difference pulling my travel trailer.
