Ugh, I hear ya.. the tires are more aggravating then the muffler here as well. 30 mph and 60 mph are my rolling areas for high tire noise, which sucks going down the highway out here.. 55 and I usually go 60. Thats what the radio is for though =)

If the oil level is low, the internal muffler pipes can rust out as condensation forms in the muffler when the truck cools down.

I have a Bassani and hate all of it's noise. I'm thinking about grafting the stock muffler to work with the side exit tips. It's soo annoying at around 55-65...which just happens to be the speed limit.

2 of my buddies one with a 01 4.0 edge and the other with a 98 4.0 both have straight duals and the edge is quiet and sounds good...the 98 is a bit louder and has more rasp...i like the way the edge sounds but i like my flow better cuz its louder and sounds deeper
