    Well I put true duals on my truck about a month ago now. I was running crappy Summit brand mufflers. Well I got on my high horse and got new wones on Sunday. Got the new Flowmaster Super 44 series. Holy crap are these things loud!!!! Sounds friggin awesome though. They are the loudest muffler they make now. I would def. recommend them to anyone looking to do true duals, replace a stock muffler with some sound!!!

    nice.


    just wondering though because i have seen a few plow trucks running duals coming out under the rear bumper......
    i back into things plowing occasiionally. mostly ice banks. denting bumper in.... what are the odds of those making it through the season? are they sticking out from under your bumper or recessed in a little?
    sounds cool just wondering if anyone has crushed them. my truck is low so im pretty sure i would

    i do at first. then by the fifth pass i start guessing. "i should stop right about......NOW"

    USUALLY, its just a snow bank behind me. but on occasion it could be Ice, filled with stones, have a tree stump in it etc. last season a rockwall jumped out behind my truck. never saw it coming.: ran right out behind me. angel:

    They exit at a 45 degree angle behind the rear tires. I never have messed up any of my trucks' duals systems, either straight out the back or at the 45 like I have now. Ive never had a complaint about the loudness of the truck. I had a flowmaster single exhaust on last winter too. Everyone waas glad because they heard me there plowing so they knew they could get out for work in the morning. Im not the only guy around here with a loud plow truck either.

    My 98 doesn't have any dents either.:D

    I have my exhaust dumped before the rear axle. Comes out of the mufflers into 2 turndowns. Nothing to bend up or smash at the back of the truck. And I think it gives a cleaner look.

    What could look cleaner than two 5" Chrome pipes?

    Dual 5" chrome pipes? What do you have under your hood?
    I'm running 2- 2.25" pipes and its plenty.

    I gotta agree with Mark here I love having my exhaust dumped right after the cheery bomb turbo mufflers it looks so much cleaner and i am not spending so much time trying to keep the tips clean.

    I have a Borla duel rear exit cat-back on my 98 ECSB Z71. Its a good sounding system and I got it for a steal about 7 years ago.

    My 98 SCLB K3500 still has the factory exhaust. I'm thinking about just replacing the muffler instead of doing the cat back thing with it. I'm thinking of using a duel 3" in and single 3" out Magnaflow muffler. Anyone have any other suggestions on something that sounds good but won't lose any low end torque?

    If you don't mind just a hint of interior drone at 2000-2500 rpm, go with the Magnaflow. Nice sound, but not obnoxiously loud...even on the 7.4's. :nod:
