Gibson Or Magna flow or Flowmaster?

I am stuck on what to get for my 01 4.0. I like the sound that Gibson puts out but do not know much about them. Heard Magna flow has blow out issues. Flowmaster fourty series is just stupid laud. HELP HELP> any suggestions?

I bought a Magnaflow catback and I have never heard of any blowout problems. I don't see how you could blow about a straight flow muffler anyway.

Not sure about Magna flow blow outs but they sound very good and beefer than the Gibson's. I'm sure someone will chime in.

Iv'e used the Gibson exhaust (cat-backs) single and dual & like them both for the price. The dual sounds very good (IMO) and the single sounds ok but its not much louder then stock, but it sure does look and perform better!

Like when the material inside deteriorates to the point where it collapses and gets blown out.
