WHAT is the easiest way to get rid of the stock muffler?

like the question in the title says, what is the easiest way. Some simple, to give me the sound I want until I buy the exhaust I want.

Does anyone make a delete pipe to fit the stock size exhaust?

I see a sawzall in your future, unless you got a muffler shop that will do the work.

Just disconnect it at last clamp before the muffler, and put a turn down on it. Thats how mine is! Little raspy at 2700 rpm, but sounds like a V8 with flowmasters at WOT

I found an MBRP piece for like $60 to put in there, works for me. It just replaces the muffler. cause I'm really picky about exhaust, so I have to figure out what I really want before I commit to a whole system. this'll just give me close to the sound I want. And, as for the cat, the guy who had the truck before me had it taken care of. Looks like he had a muffler shop cut the ends off the cat and weld a piece uf exhaust tubing between them. Works well enough for me and it doesn't leak, so perfect.
