    aero turbine 2525 If plannin on staying with stock y pipe or headers, aero turbine 2525XL (resonated) if you plan on getting headers or removing cats in y pipe (or simply don't like it as loud). Its all subjective, but many agree on here they sound the best.

    Check out youtube vids, memario has some great aero vids. I'll be posting a vid tomorrow of my headers, at2525, and resonator

    I just put this system on my truck:
    http://www.flowmastermufflers.com/s...089&ab=17432&recordID=230&vehicle=&orig=17432

    I am very happy with it, perfect fit, and super easy to do. It took me 45 mins, 3 beers, and some socket wrenches. I have an access cab, and it comes with an extra piece if you have the double cab, or long bed. It has a very nice sound when driving, but when idling it is not very loud. I like that because less of a hard time with inspections here.

    i second this. my flowmaster sounded ok at best it droned like mad on the highway and around town it was really bad plus the baffle inside broke loose in under 6 months of use :/

    i found this out later as well but, they are also more restrictive due to the way they are designed internally. for what its worth everyone i have heard of that has bought a wicked flow, aero turbine or spin tech all love their mufflers. not only is the sound very aggressive but, they don't fall apart.

    Depends on if you are looking to simply add in a muffler only, or swap in a whole catback system. Which is it you are looking for?
