Cool Exhaust???

Good morning everyone,
So I have a couple questions. I have a 1996 ford F-350 Powerstroke. It is lifted, and has a tymar intake. Other then that it is stock. I am going to do an exhaust here soon. questions are.....should I just go with a straight pipe set up? does that, or can it hurt anything?? And where can I get a good system for a decent price??

straight pipe won't hurt anything, i used to have mine stright piped out in front of the back tire, then i bought a 5" over-the-axle section from a shop around here, i would suggest doing the 3" downpipe, mine is 3" dp, 4" to where the cab meets teh bed, then 5" the rest of the way, you can see in my sig what it looks like now, and here is what it looked like before
