Cat back exhaust systems

Does anyone have any recommendations for cat back exhaust system? I don't really want it to be loud at all. Anyone have the Dynomax or Gibson system?

I have the gibson system. It was SUPER easy to instal. It was not too loud at all. Just a little noise inside the cab. The gibson uses a insulated muffler and thicker wall pipe design to have all the sound come out the back. I have replaced my factory cats with one dual in single out cat so I could get a little more volume out of it. It was too quiet for me. But I like them loud. Probably be perfect for you.

Well, I got it in and put it on. Gibson stainless cat-back system. Nice, heavy kit, but too loud for me. :(

Really? Hmm... You could always have a local exhaust shop put in a glasspack style muffler before the Gibson system. I've had good luck with that in the past for quieting up exhaust systems without hurting flow, or tone. Just make sure its a baffle style and not a fiberglass packing style. If you have a Bucky's in your area they wont charge more than $50 to put it in really.

The guys at Ranger Station have said that the dynomax system is only slightly louder than stock exhaust which was "too quiet" for them. I'm looking at that with a magnaflow cat but gotta wait on funds.
