I bought a muffler delete pipe from an online vendor (can't seem to find the link right now) and if i remeber correctly it was only about $60 plus shipping. I read somewhere that careful disassembly of the muffler would allow you to use the muffler's outlet pipe that is actually internal to the muffler. Sure enough it had a flanged and flared end and the delete pipe slipped right in!!! I even cut the muffler apart in such a way that I could leave the rear muffler hangers (over the rear axle area) on the muffler outlet pipe so the exhaust still had the proper support. My kitty cat got sick too while all this work was going on and now the truck sounds flat out awesome.
The sound at idle is best described as a mix of hairdryer/jet airplane whistle/tractor trailer idle rumble. I think my fuel economy is going to go in the dumps because I can't keep my foot out of it. I can't stop smiling.
