i had the gibson on my 3.0, sounded real nice and was right at $400 for the dual out system.

you want exhaust straight out the back on your ranger?...i believe gibson also makes that. try some different sites. summit racing is good, autoanything, rockauto is good. let me know what you find on there

take it to a shop, don't waste your time with kits just have a shop custom do it. Pick your own tips and how you want it exiting the vehicle. these kits limit what you actually want.

make sure to tell them exactly what you want if you take it to a shop and make sure they understand too. i told a guy at the shop i went to " raise the exhaust tip at least 3in " and he didnt. im about to straight pipe mine tho and im taking to someone else this time.

i took my muffler off my 3.0 and ran a 3 inch straight pipe coming out of the cat. it sounds really good. it sounds like a v8 when its sitting at an idle. and it has a nice rumble going down the road.

My straight piped exhaust really isnt that loud. I didnt touch the exhaust and it sounds pretty much the same as a flowmaster setup.
