    I have an 06' 350 dump V-10. I am looking to replace the muffler. The dealer wants about $600(list $790)....Can"t seem to find anything on-line....Parts store has no listing. Wondering what anybody else has done. The muffler and tailpipe are one piece.

    Most exhaust shops will work with you and can cut the muffler out and replace it with a generic one with the same size inlet outlet, they'll just reuse your tail. And even if your tail is bad and you cant get one, any reputable exhaust place will be able to bend you a new one in house. Get an estimate from one, might surprise you!

    I would recomend that you go to an exhaust shop as well.
    $600 for a muffler is insane, I buy ones for big trucks(5" in and out, 4' long) for $60.

    My favorite ghetto muffler shop does jobs cheaper then I can buy the parts most times.
    Stay away from the chain places. They are out to fleece the unwary. If the pipe is not prebent they can"t do it.
    You could get a Gibson stainless system for less then $600.

    again go to a local shop they will be able to help you. a flowmaster 50 series or 70 series would be close to stock.

    My adapter pipe from my stock cross over to my Gibson ( 5.4 ) exhaust came loose. It did sound cool as hell !
    Got the evil eye from too may cops. So I fixed it.

    I agree no muffler. Just straight pipe and dump it down just in front of the rear axle. Never have to worry about damage and it helps muffle the sound. Mine's a diesel though. Sure sounds cool with the turbo whine.

    You can straight pipe a turbo diesel. The turbo is actually considered a muffling device in some states. I hope Illinois is one of them!! But a straight piped gasser is way too loud, and sounds like crap, IMO.
