quiet side exit exhaust

im looking for an exhaust system that exits infront of the rear wheels but cant find any companies that make it for the ranger anymore.
what companies still make this kind of exhaust?

id like it to be a quiet one though.. like stock quiet

edit: or just suggest companies that make quiet mufflers and ill go to an exhaust shop for the rest

Bassani makes one, but from the videos I've heard it's loud.

Yeah um, just hack off the pipe before your muffler and have an elbow welded on and you're done. $50 max at the exhaust shop?

i need the space where my stock muffler is for an air tank and compressor
thats why i wanted a side exit, because it would put the muffler under the cab of the truck and leave me the space i need

and im not going to put the comperssor and tank where my spare is, even though alot of people do, because i dont want to get stranded somewhere without a spare

but thanks for the responces so far guys

Yeah, Bassani is loud and annoying. If I were to rework my system, I'd use my Bassani tips and "s" pipe and connect it to the stock muffler to be quiet again.
This is how it looks, I am thinking about putting stock back on and welding the connector off of the bassani muffler to stock.

Really?

You can go to an exhaust shop and have one bent up for less than it would cost to buy a pre-fabbed kit.

In my opinion you get what you pay for. I'd rather buy a pre fabbed kit to get cleaner welds and madrel bends.

I drove around while putting the exhaust on to see what no muffler sounded like, then put the Bassani on. It's a little quieter. Truck idleing...camera on ice.

In Langley, where I work, there is a big custom car scene so everything here is top notch for cheap. Everything is mandrel bent, and TIG welded.

Not around here. I have seen to many shops do some stupid looking bends and some crappy welds. You have to shop around to find a good shop.
