    Having one of the first Raptor's in the city, let alone the nation, I had to do some thinking outside the box when it came to some of my mods. Case in point was the exhaust, while stock the Raptor sounds good.....its not great, at least to me. I really didn't want to run a Flowmaster or some cheap muffler, I wanted something with a lil quality, so I went with the world's smallest 3" Magnaflow muffler (PN 14159) and nice slash cut 4" tip

    I really didn't want do deal with going true duals, I wanted more sound than performance, so I decided from past experience that a single muffler and exit before the rear axle would be best.......

    Here just a simple cut old muffler out and weld new muffler in

    Then an exit out before the rear wheel

    ....and the sound is awesome in person.

    I need to get off my ass and follow your lead here Jules. My Raptor has had the stock exhaust note for far too long now.

    exactly what I'm wondering. From the sound clips I've heard online, I feel like my ear also prefers the sound of the magnaflow over that of flowmaster and some of the other popular products. But online sound clips aren't quite like the real thing. I also feel like magnaflow is a safe bet for me based on how much I like the sound of yours.

    I would run Magnaflow, SLP, Bassani, or Corsa for your truck.....the question becomes how do you want the exhaust to look? Single? True dual? Just a muffler with single inlet/dual outlet? Dumped under the truck? Go all the way out the back? What tips to run?......theres alot that can be done, so I guess first things first......are you looking for more sound or performance or looks?

    ideally i'd like a single, exiting on the passenger side right before the rear wheel.

    2
    single tip, coated in a black or charcoal colored material, like ceramic perhaps
    something along these lines:

    all 3 are important to me, but sound is definitely the priority.

    Well if sound is the biggest deal to you, then your headed in the right direction, a two into one exhaust is the best deep, aggressive sound you can get......we'll have to work on how to mount the exhaust exiting out the side cuz you push your truck just as hard as I push mine and I had no luck keeping that sum bitch in place :crazy:
