If you live up North or where they salt the roads you want a SS system. But to be honest the restriction in the factory system isn't the size of the plumbing it is in the muffler they selected. They took a 3.5" exhaust and necked it down to 2.5" to put it through a offset muffler which caused further restriction. Backpressure is good in a gasser but not in a diesel. I would just replace it with a straight shot 3.5" Walker BTM muffler, these can be had at Napa for $40. I would also change your plumbing to exit behind the rear tire.

I just got a 4 inch Magnaflow, 4 inch dp, SS, freeflow muffler, exits behind rear tire, 6 inch tip. All for about 320 and I'm happy with it

And my dad has an 01 which he put the same system on, not to mention he had the same setup on his 99
