leave the cats alone. single 2.5" in to a magnaflow with dual 2.25" pipes out the back to the tips of your liking. thats what i have and i LOVE IT. it sounds so sick! nice and deep with no drone at all on the highway

Alright so I'm gonna give the same answer that I give to all these threads.

Step 1. Go to youtube and search ranger exhaust

Step 2. Choose the one you like

Step 3. Enjoy

I have a Flowmaster 40 series. I love it, it doesn't drone real bad, when you put your foot in it, it sounds awesome. But everyone has different opinions, so it's hard to get a good answer

Well if he was able to listen to trucks like his in real life with exhaust he wanted then why would he post the question here?

I never asked anyone or searched youtube because I heard another 4.0L ranger with flowmaster 40 and I liked it.

Yeah man I got a 3" tube from the last cat back to the muffler which is a delta flow 40 series. Then is dual out (2.25") pipes that exit behind the two back tires. There is basically no difference between the sound of the delta or just a straight 40 series; they are just chambered differently. Remember these trucks are V6's. You can't make it sound like a V8, but you can make it sound good for sure!

x2 the only way to get a v8 sound is to buy a v8
