I starting to want a Muffler

So my truck has a 4 inch down pipe to a 5inch straight pipe and it sounds awesome. but i'm really starting to get sick of how loud it is. the neighbors hate me cause i come home late and wake the entire neighborhood up at night. so i want to quiet it down a little bit but not restrict it too much. I have a TS chip and intake. My main question is. will soot clog the muffler up when i wanna go fast or will it blow right thru? anyone have suggestions on mufflers?
Thanks
Will

You should be able to get a pass-thru muffler. That's what came with my MBRP 4". You look in one end, can see right through it. It does have a metal tube inside wrapped with fiberglass or something. It has holes with one side bumped out. The instructions said if the open side of the bumps face the cab, the exhaust will be quieter than if they are pointing toward the exhaust tip. I put mine toward the exhaust tip. Not overly loud, but I didn't run it without it to see what the difference would be.

I deal with that a little too, I just come in easy without laying into it late in the evenings but remember, you can;t please everyone (they REALLY love me when I ride my dad's Harley...

A pass-through muffler is your best bet but even a stock style (baffled) muffler should not clog up. You may even be able to contact the manufacturer of your existing exhaust and they may offer a muffler for your system.

Also, a lot of guys here speak highly of the Walker BTM (big truck muffler) and they say it doesn't destroy the sound but quiets them down around idle

off topic but i just watched that youtube video, and how did those people not get arrested as they drove away "showing off" thier new dumb A55 whistle muffler. Talk about wreckless driving, wrong lane, almost head on collision, and running a stop sign.

This reminds me of when I lived in WA I had a 40 Series Flowmaster on my '92 Dakota with a 318 in it - the "manager" of our neghborhood (HOA) told me he was going to start fining me for my truck being too loud (It was a 50 state legal muffler, and I still had a Cat on the truck). I did frequently come home late, and there was a speed bump right next to his house, so conveniently I would go slow enough to not make it over the bump the first time and have to throttle it to get over. I suppose if the guy wasn't a dick all the time to everyone, I would have probably been nicer about it.

Apparently your neighbors aren't blatant ******s like mine was or you probably wouldn't want to quiet it down. I'd suggest a flow through muffler with the baffles "cupping" the exhaust flow - really any "performance" you lose isn't going to be noticable.
