I want a deep tone, powerful sound, loud, yet not raspy or ricey. My opinions below are based on my wants in sound.

NOW....when I say loud, I do not mean small block v8 loud, these truck's aren't too loud with full tailpipes regardless of muffler choice.

Dumped people.....(aka no tailpipe people).....call back in a year with you get either a: sick and tired of the resonance or b: grow up and want something livible!! lol.

I've already offed my Catalytic converter so this will be a complete job from headers to muffler.
I don't want Noise violation loud, but i want people to know im comin.
For your 4.0 OHV, I find the Flowmaster Delta 40 sounds best on it. Combine that with a custom exhaust bent up and hung from your local exhaust shop, and you'll be into it way less than buying a kit.

Shop around....some shops won't install a muffler you bought or they'll charge an arm and a leg on the pipe install. Others won't care. My single 2.5" cat back using my muffler ran be $150. My 2.5" in/dual 2.25" cat back using my muffler ran me $200 to hang. So call around or stop around. Prices vary WIDELY from place to place.

Mufflers are cheapest off eBay or Performance Peddler . com.

On your 4.0 SOHC, I find the Flowmaster Super 44 sounds best on it. With a very close 2nd place being the Flowmaster Super 40. I've had 6 mufflers on this truck, so you know I'm picky and/or gave up. lol. DEEEP, loud and powerful when ya get on it. With tailpipes, interior resonance ain't that bad at all. Loudest at 2100 RPM I find with my dual tailpipes dumped at the spare carrier.

Flowmaster 40 series. SI/DO turned out in front of the passenger side rear tire.

Sounds great, not disturbing the peace, that's what my 77 is for

currently running a 2.5" cat back with a flowmaster 50 series SI/DO dumped. it sounds good and at really higher rpms, but it does get old.
i also ran the dynomax kit, its tame, but a bit more throaty than stock.

i plan on changing out to a Super 44 with a full pipe, SI/SO, possible 3" not sure atm tho


good thread guys, lots of directivity

all i can say is a built 4.0 with cam and no cats, 2.5 pipe and a dumped 40 series si/do is loud and annoying in the cab.. too much for my likings... it sounds badass when u get on it.. but the whole interior rattles.. lame. so i bought a cheap resonator to weld in, just haven't got the time.. if that doesn't help ill probably through in a high flow cat or something

Thanks for the advice, I will most likey be doing the install myself, so theres no lost cost there. I've always liked flowmasters. Magnaflow to me is meant for suped up muscle cars. i don't have one of those.
