Muffler

Hey guys! I would like to put some kinda muffler on my 3.0 Ranger, BUT, I don't want it to sound like a rice burner. I would like something more mellow. I am 32 years old and just don't want it to be loud and anoying. What should I go with?

My friend has a magnaflow on his 3.0 and its pretty mellow. Any more mellow and you might as well leave the stock muffler on. It does sound good and deep though.

I put a Raptor 2" inlet/2" outlet in place of my stock muffler and it's the "mellowest" Ranger I have ver heard, the muffler was like $22.93 and it's very big but it is DEEP. Deepest is at 1000-1400RPM & 1900-2300RPM, look around your local part suppliers and see if they keep it, I highly recommend it after the 2 months I have been using it.

I personally have a Dynomax. It's cheap and has a nice sound. I got mine for $140. I've never heard another Ranger in person to compare. Well at least the 3.0.

I also have the gibson, it's pretty mellow, yet different enough that you appreciate it. The exhaust along with a decent cold air intake really wakes these trucks up.

I have heard that the gibson is mellow and has a very nice growl to it. I am planning on getting a gibson here pretty soon.

the 50 series gives you the flowmaster sound with being so loud it is nice especially early in the morning
