either buy a nasty sounding 5'' system! or do a lil work, cut your exhaust and get 2 reducers for each side that go from 3.5 to 5 which they do make oh and 2 clamps

Assuming you have deleted your cat and have not thrown it away you can make two 3.5in. to 5in. reducers out of it if you cut off the ends. Although straight piping the truck would have been cheaper and better.

'94 F-350 CC DRW 2WD Turbo IDI 7.3
Rebuilt E4OD w/"updates" & billet Precision "RV" TC
Custom welding Bed/Lincoln Classic II
Helper Bags
3" straight pipe w/one-off 6" SS tip
K&N Air Filter
Pioneer HU/Alpine components
7 235/85-16's (spare tire holder is modded for a bigger than stock spare)
FL-1995 & new ZD9's
Next: whenever the OEM injectors go out they will get replaced with BB codes

well you are probably right but i don't wan't it too loud and no tone, i have never heard a diesel straight pipe i've only heard on with a muffler and i liked the sound.. i ordered the 4" muffler last night but this time i got it with out the resonator, i could'nt see my self paying $60-70 shipping to send and recieve so i can sell it to you guys and you guys can save $40...

update i fianally put the aero turbine but a 4" and i'm very dissapointed it sounds like stock or you have to step on it in order to tell you put a muffler i think i have to remove the cat in order to tell that i have a muffler

removing the cat on a 6.0 doesnt sound any different in my opinion.

I straight piped my truck turbo back. And it sounds like you describe its very quiet when driving normally till you romp on it then it sounds like a bat out of hell. Diesel engines dont get that loud because of the turbo it acts like a muffler unless it has stacks.
