    NADA! Performance wise yet. But 33" All-Terrain tires and a 3" Skyjacker Suspension Lift.
    Alright i'm new to the forum but i figured you guys would be able to help me out a little. Today i came by a 50 DOLLAR BILL on the ground. Course i picked it up.
    Anyways, i've been pricing different stuff out. I don't have a lot of money here so there isn't a lot of options. But i'm really considering getting a muffler for my truck. I've found 'em for 200 and i've found 'em for 30. Whats the difference fellas? All i want is to actually here my engine over my tires lol. A good sounding muffler is what i need. SUGGESTIONS PLEASE! And keep it cheap.
    Now if you have a better suggestion for the 50 dollars i found, i'm open to hear it. Tell me what y'all think

    I personally like the sound of Gibson Mufflers, they have a great dark rich tone to them.

    Unless you have a cutoff wheel/hacksaw, and a welder, a new muffler is going to cost more than $50. Last time I did this a few years ago, low-cost muffler prices ranged from about $30 (glasspack) to about $60-70 (Magnaflow, Flowmaster), then getting it welded on cost me $30, but I imagine that could easily be 40-50. In other words, unless you can replace it yourself, it'll cost around $100.

    I decided to make my own muffler. Fortunately I have access to a welder, torch, sawzall, etc. considering I do it myself lol. Check out what I created......:D



    Believe it or not, it didn't make the noise I was expecting. Theres a little difference in the sound but I'm usually the only one who can tell. I wouldn't recommend wasting your time though. Thanks for yall advice though.
