You can have a shop make one. That's it. You wont gain any power from deleting the cats though.

I've never had cats on mine and it goes like 300 mph. Just kidding, it wont do anything but make it a little louder but not much.

I've never had cats and the cheap $20 Thrush muffler from the parts stores sounds pretty good on my truck. But it only sounds good because it's quiet.

Because its a V6 truck and straight piped V6 engines sound gay 99% of the time.

Anyway you will have to make your own. No one makes an offroad pipe.

once again, the only thing that is sounding gay are those who are making the comments of it sounding bad, when once again i did not state what the rest of the exaust was consisted of, i did not state what other mods that i have done that would affect the sound of my exaust. you have nothing to base your statements off of period.

Once again its a V6. Calm down. Kudos to you if you make it sound good though.

Make your own pipe at an exhaust shop. I would go with one that can do mandrel bends.

im not gettin bent out of shape over it, im just sayin those comments are kinda un needed. its kinda like the quote you have in your sig. some like it some dont, but that doesnt leave it open for you to put someone down over their taste in something.

Just to let you know since you are new I'm the resident a$$hole/Ranger hater.

You do know its illegal to take the cats out right? If your state does emission you would have to put it all back on.

i am aware of the laws on it, with illinois emissions if you have a cel, you will fail, if you have the o2 tuned out, it will just come up as not ready on thier scan, you are allowed 2 not readys with what they scan for, the third one will fail you. now still doesnt make it legal, but it does allow you to pass.

and to korey, have you heard every combination with that muffler (which im not even sure you know which muffler by magnaflow i have and im pretty sure they make mor than 1) including the headers i have, with or without cats, what size tips are used (which tone the note of exaust also). really your input here is not wanted....

i was running just the stock manifolds for a while on my 91 3.0 i LOVED IT gave me power and >.> i was running way rich but a certain times i got FIRE :D

but it was way loud :( lol my fault as i had it dumped right under the cab lol)

and by the way i don't know anywhere than makes the cat delete pipe for that but!! you could possibly take a 2inch pipe and and a BFH and punch em out ( then again!! i own a 91 >.> i don't know if its different )

but as for the pity like bs that's going on here just drop it hell i have said somethings on here that none else liked yet i still did them as if i remember my ranger is just that MY ranger as is his ranger let him do what he wishes
