    Should've left it stock, most consider the 18" very quite on our trucks. You wont get any sound from a 22" let alone adding a res. to your set up now.

    Vibrant resonator made a world of difference for me. I've got a full custom exhaust with no cats and the vibrant got rid of a lot of rasp, drone, and now have a nice exhaust note.

    I am sure it is good....its just preference....I did not like the way it sounded and did not want to keep messing with it...so lost a cpl hundred and put the stock back on
