MBRP 4" straight pipe or not?

Well guys I just received my MBRP 4" turbo back exhaust for my excursion. Trying to decide if I wanna run their glasspack muffler or just run straight piped. So I thought I would run a poll. let me know your experiences.

I've had the same system on my 97 F350 with glasspack and loved it.

Left the muffler on for the people in the back.Kind of a courtesy thing was my thinking.

Stock exhaust here, no muffler & it dumps out in front of my rear axle. Not really concerned about noise because it drowns out my 3 kids yellin & hollering in the back.

Well guys I kept the MBRP muffler, which is basically a glasspack. I did up grade to the MBRP 6" outlet stainless tip though. It sounds amazing. Next I'm gonna shoot for the GTP38r turbo upgrade.

Have you done anything with your trans yet? I figure that will be my next adventure.
All I've done thus far is bypass the radiator trans cooler to a larger external cooler.

The only thing I have done is a BG full synthetic flush. Would like to swap to the 6.0 trans cooler. As far as I know its stock too. I just started to address the running boards and rockers. Wish I had done that way sooner along with removing the cladding and inner door weatherstrip. All great places for rust.
