    Thank you. It is the american thunder kit. Put it on about three weeks after I got the truck, and that was almost a year ago. My mom and wife complained about how loud it was when we drove my truck to Daytona a couple of weeks ago (where the pic is from), but I've been completely satisfied with it.

    women usually dont appreciate the sound of a good exhaust. i love the sound of my flowmaster now, but i want the looks of dual, and of course the sound of it too. but idk if the wallet will be thick enough after my new uca's, grille and retro's.

    I have the MBRP dual exhaust. It's the pro series or something like that. It's a good option and it sounds pretty good.

    The wife likes it except when she is in the back, I'm in the front and we have to talk. I guess the sound from the exhaust and me talking with my back turned to her makes it hard to hear, so I pretty much have to yell at her when we talk. Other than that, she has no complaints.

    The price really wasn't that bad. I think around $350 (I didn't get the stainless steel option). All of my trucks have had dual exhaust, but this is the first catback system I have bought. Most of the time, I took it to the muffler shop and had it done. It was a little bit cheaper that way and I was happier with the results. I could pick out the size tips I wanted and they would slip on different mufflers until I found the one that I liked the sound of. Buying a catback system is like shopping in the dark because you won't know what it sounds like until you put it on. The youtube videos never completely capture the true sound.

    what muffler is used with the american thunder system? and since its not stainless, is it galvanized aluminum? and how is it holding up?

    I haven't noticed any surface rust on the system. The tips still look good even though I haven't polished them, only washed them. I thought about hitting everything with a coat of high temp black paint (except the tips) before I put them on but decided not to.
