Like a V8? No

There is nothing that will make a 3.0 sound like a v8. If you must put a muffler on it, go with a flowmaster or similar chambered muffler

Resonator tips help some. You will get a few pops and grumble type sounds when you rack em off or downshift. They sound pretty good on a 3.0. My buddy has some Monza tips on his 95 3.0 Splash.

This. I went with a Flowmaster 40 series with dual 3" tips out the back. It doesn't give that v8 sound but sounds pretty good at WOT, not too raspy.

I live if FL as well and dont think you have anything to worry about. I just cut my exhaust off and am running open after the cat and IT SOUNDS HORRIBLE!!! My flowmaster 40 got delayed in the mail. I do have this for sale... https://www.ranger-forums.com/engine-drivetrain-116/cat-back-exhaust-dual-tips-fl-126049/ hint hint.
