New Muffler

Ok, before you say it i tried a search and couldn't come up with a consistent answer to my question. I am looking to buy just a muffler for my v6 4.0 99 supercab xlt. What kind of muffler will give it a good sound, but not too loud. I was looking at a glasspack but in the searches one person will say it sounds ricey and another says it has a deep mellow tone. Is a Gibson a good choice? Cost isn't really an issue, i was also looking at a dynomax, does anyone have just the muffler and know what it sounds like? The headers, and all the pipes will be still be stock.

I have a clip of a SS gibson on my old 4.0 SOHC. Click the link in my sig. I was very happy with my setup.

Flowmasters usually sound pretty good too.
My local garage/muffler shop had a Flo-Pro brand (I think that's what it was called) which is basically the same as a Flowmaster at half the cost. Sounds great, low rumble @ idle & a little throaty while in the throttle.... kinda like a V8 Mustang, not ricey at all.
Mine is a cat-back with dual outlet muffler out the back, 2 1/2" pipe & 4" chrome tips. My tips actually made the sound a little deeper.

One of these days, I'm gonna make some sound clips....
