    So there is no way I am paying 600.00 for a Ford Factory exh. system as my muffler is rotted out. The pipes are fine just the muffler is gone. I also looked at the walker pipes and they are thin junk. The factory pipes are sort of mandrel bent and real thick material. I priced a walker replacement muffler 18887 and was quoted from 110.00 to 130.00 at 2 different parts stores. My buddy owns one of them. Go figure. Anyway got the same one at rockauto.com for 63.00 plus a few bucks shipping. Cut apart the pipes today and had to add a little bit to each end. I had that material laying around. Took about 3 hours. I still saved money.

    I used the same muffler on my 04 HEMI before I traded it in. Got the muffler (Dynomax/Walker QuietFlo) and tail pipe from Rockauto for about $100 shipped. Was a nice unit, I think you'll be happy.
