yea it doesnt sound like a big truck, but thats not what I drive. I have a lowered truck all blacked out on big rims. I was going for a tuner look and I figured that the exhaust should compliment it. I think for what it is its pretty good.

If i had lifted my truck, I would have left the dumped flow 40 on it. but the flowmaster wasnt really matching the look and I wanted something to fill the exhaust cut out in the roll pan

It has a better tone then mine.. Though mine is in stereo

It's just at those higher rpms the 4banger loses the sound..

At first I thought I didn't like it. Then I read how you're going for the "tuner look" and I thought, well now it makes sense and doesn't sound too bad. The sound compliments the look nicely. Good Job man! Your truck has a unique style.

i think an oval SLP Loud mouth tip like the tips that come on the thunderbolt would look better.

I'm gonna have to agree with you, and I was the first of the haters

Honestly, after listening to a ton of after market exhaust systems on ALL the Ranger engines, I think I'll just go with a replacement muffler from Napa. I am the type of person that loves a throaty sound, and so far I haven't heard it coming from a Ranger, even the 4.0.

Like has been said before, if you like it, who cares what everyone else says. I know a lot of people don't care for my Gen 1 Ranger or the snorkel on my Explorer, but I do. I built the trucks for me, not them, and they do what I built them for. Quit worrying about what everyone else "thinks". For a lowered truck yours is nice.

maybe try installing a muffler or resonator under the truck with the fart can, that may make the sound deeper.
