Quieter Exhaust

Here's the deal. I have a 2004 6.0l and AFE 4" SP exhaust. I hunt quite a bit and it is too loud. Is there a quieter, yet good flowing muffler I can put on my system without buying a whole new turbo-back?

I know it is kind of wierd, but when you spook everything for three miles because it sounds like a 747 landing, it makes the hunting a bit tough.

ha, yea I can see that. I kinda like the sound of my truck going down the road. Sounds like a turboprop trying to take off. But when it comes to hunting, I take the s10..much quieter

do you still have the stock exhaust? The bigger the pipe the louder it is. There are many flow through muffs out there.

I dont't have the stock. Will I be able to put a 4" MBRP straight through muffler in?
