Did some work today!

Since it was such a nice day I decided to clean up the truck. Got out the buffer and went to work. Spent about 4 hours on just the exterior. No wonder why meguiars puts "mirror glaze" on their bottles.

Beautiful! The sky in the last picture makes the picture really cool. Oh and you forgot to block off one of the license plates.

Thanks man! Yeah I blocked the plate in the one pic a while ago when I posted the car when I was selling it. (im not selling anymore) Really I don't care if someone can see the plate. Everyone on the road sees it anyway. That was just for selling purposes.

Real exhaust? What do you prefer? I think flows sound best on these cars. I had SLP lm1 and lm2's and my god did they sound like $hit compared to the flows but everyone has their own opinion.

Chambered mufflers sound best imo. Don't really like the straight through set up's. Depends on what they are on though.

Personally I love Borla for the Ranger, for me. But to each is own, I don't want something real loud. I love FlowMasters or Magnaflow on Mustangs!

I prefer to gain HP and TQ...Catted X and SLP LMIIs sound tons more refined and better the Slowmasters. Borla Stingers sound great.

If you want a chambered go with Magnaflow...you will gain a little more then Slowmasters but less then a bullet design.

Problem is, you have a Catted H, which only sounds good with slowmasters or similar chamber style. Get an X and bullet design, you won't regret it.

I had a catted X and wound up selling it. Had it on my SLP's and flows. I like the deeper sound in exhaust that the H delivers. Like I said, everyone has their opinion. Not knocking you for what you like/prefer. Can you post some pics of your car and maybe a sound clip?
