I have had my truck for about 4 years now. It had the exhaust when I bought the truck. The exhaust always sounded fine but I new it was choking the motor...true duals from cats, 3" tubing all the way back into single in/out flow 40's. the muffler are way past the axle with turndown tips almost right under the bumper. Never bothered with it bc I was always buying other shit.

I was cleaning off my rear axle the other day and i notice the mufflers are starting to rust through and when i hit them, you can hear shit in the bottom of them moving around like there is sand inside. Time for a new setup...

I like deep rumble sound, but I am afraid of loosing that sound by switching to a straight through muffler like a Magnaflow. I have a lifted truck with 37's, so I need some torque and power, but I want the good Flowmaster like sound. What are your suggestions?

Here is a pic on MSPaint....no working camera...

flowmasters are prone to doing that. i have a set that i just took off of my truck when i installed my LTs and corsa..they rattled before but after i cut them off, i managed to get almost all of the rusted insides to fall out of the bottom. if you still want that sound, i'd guess you'd need to go with the flowmasters or a V-force muffler; however, i personally wouldnt. also, that dual 3" pipe is definitely overkill! if you want to regain some power, go back with a y-pipe into a single inlet muffler...if you want to run duals, get a single inlet/dual outlet muffler:imo

I guess what I am trying to say is there a straight flowing muffler that has a deep rumble like a flowmaster with having that gross raspy crackle sound.

..or not. That is probably the most raspy crackling muffler ever.

:jester: my buddy had dynomax bullets on his truck. they sounded okay BUT he had the 12" chamber and they made a popping noise. another local guy had the 18" casing and i dont recall his making any popping noise, but they were deep sounding:imo

flows are nice and great sounding but the welds on the baffels will break if you have a lot of power. Also yes rusting is an issue on the flows even the stainless i had rusted. But for the price they are ok. Corsa, borla, or bassani will be a much better built muffler for ya

What motor do you have? If its a small block, dual 3 inch is excessive. I have a single 3 inch spintech system on mine, nice and deep, no rasp, fairly quiet at cruising speeds. Definitely louder than a Magnaflow. I posted a sound clip of mine a while ago, I'm going to go look for it and link to it.

I'm in Leander, just west of Hineston.

Well, I'm happy with my Magnaflow I have on. It all depends on you though, depending what kind of sound you want.
