MBRP 4" straight pipe draws too much attention

OK, so I've got a 2005 f350 single rear, KR CC with a 4" straight pipe. I love my exhaust but it's too load. Not for me, but it does seem to draw the wrong kind of attention if you know what I mean... Anyway, I'd like to tone down the noise a bit without screwing up the flow too bad or trapping too much heat.

SO, what I'm looking for is the bare minimum MBRP muffler too cut out a little bit of noise and keep as many benefits as I can.

This forum has been a huge resource for me because I had to basically rebuild my motor last year so I appreciate everyone's help ahead of time. You guys rule.

Oh, and if you haven't had a chance, look up diesel power challenge 2013 on youtube. It's badass. PSD!!!

They're all gonna sound the same. A straight through muffler. Get a mbrp or afe or banks etc they're all gonna do the same thing.

If you really want to tone it down, find a 4 inch banks muffler on ebay for cheap. I had a 4 inch straight pipe on my 6.0, and the whistle and drone got annoying after a while. After I put the banks muffler on, it was smooth, deep, quiet, powerful. It sounded just right. And this was just a muffler only, no converter. I sold that truck but it sounded like how a 6.0 should sound.

Not true. There is a big difference in sound between a packed style muffler and a non-packed style

You can simply add the MBRP muffler in by cutting out 30" of pipe. It will quiet it down enough to make it a little more sane. Diesel Mufflers and Resonatos at DieselManor

I've got the mrbp on mine, you can look straight through it. I had a magnaflow on another truck that was also a straight through design but much larger than my mrbp and also not nearly as loud. I have grown to like the sound of this mrbp.

Is there a certain model MBRP that I should look for? I'm looking into the M2029 which is what would have come with my straight pipe if I'd have checked that box..
