I have that exhaust on my truck. If you want something loud don't buy it. If you want a really nice rumble but quite this is the exhaust you want. Sorry I don't have a sound clip.

I also am considering the Gibson Extreme for my 4.0SOHC '01 4WD/Ext.Cab. Did you notice horsepower increase?Also,very important---Were you able to keep the spare tire in factory location?Did you have to do any sawing or was it a unbolt/bolt on install?Thanks...

I have a clip of my sweptside hosted on myspace, but myspace is down right now. I'll post the link when it's back up.

And Gibson's fit in the factory location. No cutting or removing spare tires etc...

Hard to say if theres a perf. increase but with intake & exhaust mileage came up almost 2mpg. The spare stays put, didn't have to remove it to put up exhaust.
