I loved the sound of my Flowmaster 40 with a dynomax tail pipe.. I am in the middle of doing a conversion to duals.

Haven't heard a Ranger with one, but my father in law has a 94 K1500, 350 engine, and is running Headman Headers with a full Gibson exhaust. The Gibson pipes and muffler really give that engine the OLD truck sound vs the newer, just loud exhaust sound most pipes/mufflers tend to do. I am going to look into MBRP and Gibson when I start working on my exhaust.

Yes, It had a nice deep tone but I wanted something a little louder so I just switched my muffler to a Flowmaster 40 and it sounded even better. No drone at all.

i have a dynomax and I like it. I didn't want anything too loud and I think it has a decent tone to it.

I have an 07 FX4 level II with the K&N cold air intake and magnaflow single cat back set up. It sounds good, personal choice, and to be honest I really haven't got an opinion on any increased HP (can't say I've noticed anything different, besides, its a ranger). I do like the sound of the K&N and Magnaflow set up though.

Flo-pro. Somewhat quiet with no drone at all.

x2

I have the essentially the same combo (K&N w/ Stainless Steel Magnaflow) but I have the dual real exit along with JBA Headers and they all perform great.

i did a 2.5" magnaflow dumped under the bed and its louder in the cab than going out the back but not too bad. a little louder than stock until you get on the throttle then its perfect imho.

I changed my exhaust to single inlet/ dual outlet straight pipes, I love them. It's not loud in the cab but once your behind the truck it is and it sounds awesome.

I have a K&N CAI, and a thrush Wielded muffler to lightning style side exhaust. on mine you here a whistle from air movement through the filter, and the exhaust gives a nice crackle. but if i was going to do it again i would switch for a flow-master of some sort.
