what exhaust to buy?

i am new to this but i have been searching the forums and i have not really found the answer that i am looking for.

i recently bought a 2003 4.ol 4x4 extended cab ranger and i have been looking at different exhaust sytems that i want to put on it. i really want a dual exhaust and i came across a gibson. some of the sites i look at tell me that it will fit on my truck and others tell me it wont. the part number is 9508. i have checked the part on many different sites and its about 50/50 say it fits and it doesnt. i am interested in this exhaust because its fairly priced and has good reviews. if anyone could help me out on whether comfirming that it fits or could send me links to places with good prices it would be very appertiated. thanks!

If its the whole kit i personally would stay away its held together by clamps no welds which leads to leaks. I did a Pro-flo muffler for $40 and a local welder put it in with duals to the back with tips for $125 shop around you can get a much better setup for the same price or cheaper. And i love the sound that muffler makes on my little 3.0

X2, kits seem to be a waste of money, I picked up my Magnaflow from Summitt Racing
and took it to a muffler shop and they welded it up for me. Prices seem to vary from area to area, and it cost me a bit more to have it welded, than what Pearlkid payed, but still cheaper than a kit.
