alright, alright dont laugh

Ok, how yall doin. Ive got a 2000 3.0 rang, love her to death but im lookin to install a glasspack on her or straight pipes.. I threw the straight pipe idea away because the flange on my truck is behind one silencer and the cat so I would have to rmove entire manifold back system, buy a new cat, install 10 feet of pipe yadda yadda so screw that. Next idea was a cherry bomb type glasspack, company doesnt matter, performance in the form of noise does. I found a 30 incher at autozone. Is it true the longer the pack the "rumblyer" the noise? i dont want a pissed off bumble bee noise and ive already done the airbox mod so im just lookin for a good, solid, cheap sound. Is my idea ok or what are your opinions? thanks yall

I put a Hooker areochamber on my old 3.0. It sounded dope, expecially doing 42mph in 3rd gear. It produced a very nice flow tone.

The point is the muffler sounds ten times better than a glass pack and is inexpensive.
