It's all about personal taste, for me, that's too ricey, but I'm a sucker for a 452 on the Flow so maybe don't listen to me

i couldnt tell you, someone else would have to say, but i have a super 40 on my 4 cyl lol it doesnt sound great but its alright to me i guess, all about your own preference but i know its hard when you dont know what the outcome is going to be, just take the advice of some of your fellow ranger owners

HAHA, thats my video i made for a friend, you people need to hear it, its not ricey at all......ill try and post that **** up, im using it cause its a cheap round muffler and you can hide it behind the frame once youve lifted with a body lift and you dont want your exhaust to hang low

don't get a flowmaster!!!!!!! i just got a force automotive products muffler from summit and it is the exact same thing for only 32.50!!!!!! i've used flowmaster on everything up untill i found these. they are an exact copy of flowmaster 40 series. it even sounds a little deeper than my s-10 with a 4.3 and a flowmaster 40 series at idle.

yeah....the shorter the louder is true, but you lose that deep throaty noise. I didnt really want my truck loud, just better sounding. they sell cherry bombs down to like 17 inches at kraigen i think (atleast they did at my local kraigen). If you want straight up loud, having no muffler doesnt sound that bad, i was surprised how it sounded when i started my truck with no muffler.

i kept everything the same, i still have my tailpipe in the stock position, behind the tire. but i'll probally be moving the tailpipe up in front of the tire next week.

the cherry bomb i bought wasnt to much longer than the stock muffler (about 7 inches longer), so i just took a sawzall to the ends of the old muffler and clamped on the cherrybomb
