Almost time to change out mufflers!

Okay folks I come to you with a question. I'm looking to change my muffler from stock to something of a better flow! Now I personally was looking at a 2 1/2" I/O Superflow Gibson muffler. I think they sound great but I am open to all suggestion minus Flowmaster and Thrush. So give me some thoughts and recommendations!

I got the gibson dual cat back on my 3.0.

It's quite loud outside the truck, but pretty quiet inside the cab. Something to do with double wall muffler. I think its better than the flowmaster... cause EVERYONE has one of those. Get something that will sound different.

Shane heard my truck and thought it was great, plus it was much louder than his at idle. and its only a 3.0.

the double walled mufflers don't let sound resonate outwards through the walls of the mufflers the sound all comes out the tail pipewhich is farther away from the cab, and directed away from the vehicle... which is why you don't hear it...

i personally don't want a loud exhaust system at idle, or low load, so i can drive home at 3am or leave at 5am for work on a weekend, without pissing off my neighbours... or if i'm speeding, i'm not a complete heat score if i pass a cop.. but i want to be able to hear it if i open up on the hiway or something...
