In my opinion a good exhaust system changes the way a truck looks and sounds. Pics of your truck!

If they salt the roads up there at all your going to hate the classic IIs, the salt ruins the polish on them.

For exhaust if you want deep sound Flowmaster, if you want mild sound and performance go Magnaflow

yeah, i live in Northern Maryland,they do salt the roads. and if there is the least bit of ice or snow/whatever they freak and put inch of salt down. can never get a snow day it seems. but in the past 3 years it has barely snowed


*edit*
question, i know this is gonna sound like a newb question. But how easy or hard is it to crank the t bars to get some lift?
