Glasspacks

I have a 2005 ranger 4.0 5 speed and i just put a glasspack on it its not as loud as i wanted and i was wondering if i took the cat converter off if that would help.

pretty much.. on our trucks, yeah, I wouldnt bother getting oen cut off.. most epseically if you have emissions testing. Its best to just do it proper and buy a good exhaust system from the cat-back

Get Trush glasspacks. Trust me. You will not be disappointed with them. They cost from $29-higher. People will be asking you, why is yer truck so loud? They've asked me that- lol and I just said...I got them Thrush Glasspacks.

I had glasspacks for a couple of years. After a while they will break in and get louder. I recently removed my glasspacks and went with Borla, because the GP's were to loud.

^^Nah.. it isn't that loud. I had one in place of my muffler, with some bends and it was out the back. Didn't like it, so i ran it open from the factory muffler spot with a glass pack. Stuff happened, and i ended up cutting the reducer piece that has the flange on it right after the last cat, off and went up in size and i've been running a Thrush GP on it for quite some time,Dumped under the cab. it isn't that loud. I've heard full cat back's on ranger that sound louder. Try it out, maybe you'll like it.
