I straight piped mine, I've been told that unless you're pushing 400+ hp, the only real advantage in the larger exhaust is the change in exhaust tone/note.
It also makes sense to me, as I have the welder in the garage, and in an hour or 2, I'm done.
I have used a chrome tip from the local parts store, that has a bit of packing like a 'charry bomb' style muffer built into it, if the straight pipe alone is too loud, the 'muffler' tip takes the edge off it, I have gotten no complaints from anyone, and with my yellow truck being a company truck, going to customers houses on service calls, it's a good result.
