Loud, deep, throaty, and 3.0 don't really go together. That being said, flowmaster super 44 or maybe even a 10 series

ive had roughly 5 diff mufflers on my truck... its a 3.0. right now i have a thrush welded (the chambered one) 2.25 inches. it sounds exactly like the flowmaster 40 series i had. I really like the sound of the thrush welded alot! heres the order of muffler setups ive had on my truck...

stock
heartthrob dual with 3 inch by 24 inch tips ( just loud and got me a ticket...)
-all below mufflers were cat back with nascar style exit..-

thrush turbo, super quiet and robbd power 2.25"
dynomax super turbo ok sound still quiet 2.25"
flowmaster 40 deep but drone 2.25"
dynomax ultra flo welded pretty quiet actually and robbd power if you believe it 2"
thrush welded (current) tad loud at times but the idle and back pressure pops are perfect! 2.25"

these were all on over the last 7 ish years, life in wisconsin eats mufflers alive lol

Try the thrush welded man, its cheap and i think it sounds real nice. 2.25"

im gonna try a straight through fiber packed muffler when this one rots out :) center center layout

Flowmaster super 10. I have a 4.0L, so im not sure how it would sound on a 3.0

If you run duals out the back, and dump it AFTER the rear axle, it wont drone half as bad.

I had a super 44 with duals, and had it dumped after the rear axle. I then ran tips out the back, and it droned A LOT more with the tips.

I now have a Flowmaster super 10 dual out. Side exit before the rear passenger tire. Sounds GREAT, but drones like CRAZY on the highway.

I've also run a Gibson, wasn't really loud, more of a deep tone, but you could tell it was there

40 series flowmasters dumped single in dual out with 2 3/4" pipe. That's what I had on my 3.0 and I loved it. Nice and deep tone sounded almost like a 4.6

i always liked running a muffler ment for a diesel farm tractor, sometimes stealthy is a good thing.

Disconnected exhaust after the last cat?

Is this a ranger? If so, what size engine?

I have a flowmaster 50 series with no cats. its perfect. way better than my old glasspack, magnaflow, or 40 series i have heard on a 3.0

http://s219.photobucket.com/albums/c...t=MOV00600.mp4

the tips are gone now and the exhaust comes out right behind the hitch. It only pops when its cold right after you start it

I should have asserted that travis moved out last year before i got my ranger and ever cared about them BUTTTT I wanna say it was a pre 1998 step side 4.0 but do not hold me too it. (idk if they made those type of rangers back then or what) I do know..because i helped him...that he had dropped the stock cat back exhaust. bought this pipe that had the stock size exhaust flange fitting and welded plumbing pipe on it and ran it to a Y and put two long long cherry bombs. like over 28" at least and than maybe a foot of chrome pipe after each bomb. it sounded better than sex. it never really had the back pressure pop or burn down and he even held a solid low end torque which is surprising considering he just dumped the exhaust. i wanna do it so bad but i dont have the cash

I have an Aero Turbine and it sounds way better than I could have imagined. Way deeper than any other six cylinder I've heard.

If you want it loud all the time idle, start-up, crusing, wot and everything in between go straight pipe. There's hardly no drone cruising the only drone is on hill when your in it and its very very obnoxious. O posted a video in another thread. Go straights or go home

Do not run TRUE duals. Your truck will be gutless from a standstill.

You can run the pipe setup, but run it off of 1 muffler.
