You won't find much if you are searching for duel exhaust, try dual next time you search. lol
Your best bet for something cheaper like that is to talk with a local exhaust shop for a custom exhaust.

How about a cheap 100% stainless SI/DO Magnaflow muffler? I'm selling one for $50 shipped. Look for "Ranger Magnaflow Muffler" in the classified section.

You're not going to buy a cheap kit. At least I don't know of any. The cheapest way is to buy a muffler and have it installed at a muffler shop. It would probably cost $200 to $250 going this route.

i went to a meineke and they wanted 425 and they would use a knock-off flowmaster and no tips. Some of the members that have been around for a few years probably remember the 250-$300 kits that were for sale. just wondering if anyone knew of any

Ya, I've been looking lately at getting a dual setup. Dont go to the big name places. Way over priced. Cheapest place I have found local will do it for $285 with a Flowmaster 40.

here is what i would do... go buy your muff, (i prefer to pick them up and take them to dinner once, it's a little cheaper than buying one flat out) cut your old muffler off, slide the new one on, use new exhaust clamp u bolts, you can tighten them on with a ratchet, tight enough... you should bend the inlet while tighting this... then go buy a y pipe, and make the dual setup yourself... shouldn't be too bad, as long as the pipe makes it over the axle... something like this for the split...


then use some of these for the corners...

the hangars are simple as a 1 legged hooker... strap it on and bolt it up... you can do one of these yourself on one of our trucks, the only thing you have to remember is to make them come out the same spot on both sides, and to go around your spare tire...

i more thing for efficiency, the pipe that goes INTO the muffler, should go INTO the muffler, the pipe out the back of the muffler should be on the outside, although this will probably not be the case... this will cause the least amount of resistance in the exhaust system, think if you were to be inside of the pipe, sliding down the side, at each of the connections, there is a lip... as such... those lips are bad...



although, dueling mufflers might be pretty sweet too... or even better... dueling muffs :D
