            Best sound , load af, and easiest install ever

            This muffler has a amazing and loud noise. Was told you can hear this thing a half a mile down the road. But if you don't want to hear it just gotta let off the gas. Install was easy. Only problem was rust but I live in New England so I expected that.

            Awesome!

            Forget Flowmaster. This is insane! The look on my neighbors faces just when i started it up....priceless. When i revved the engine my neighbor with a diesel said "Well, i'm not the loudest any more". I love it! Thank you. It took a while longer then i was expecting only because my OEM muffler was rusted on good. I had to cut it off, but the install was smooth and painless.

            Really brings out the way a HEMI should sound. However install took some time due to Michigan winters taking a toll underneath. I love it though.

            LOVE IT

            Arrived in great condition. This is such a good upgrade from the stock muffler. Sounds like a bat outta you know where when you get on it, youtube videos just don't do it justice. I am extremely happy with my choice to get the competitor over the progressive. But i like a louder exhaust. Deep throaty grumble that really brings out that hemi engine sound. I dont notice alot of drone but keep in mind everyone can tolerate drone at different levels. Overall the welds and quality are top notch.

            Awesome sound!

            This exhaust makes my hemi sound mean! Awesome sound! It does have some drone in certain RPM ranges, but at cruising speed or once you are off the pedal is fairly quiet. You definitely know it when you are on the gas though! Wow!!! Nice throaty growl out of this muffler, especially on a cold start. Had to have it installed though since I couldn't get the factory muffler off myself- needed a torch. Sounds great, very happy with it.

            It's a good product. It drones bad between 1500 and 2000 RPM to the point where I turn of the MDS and have it Rev just over 2000. Wish this would be fixed. Love the sound though.

            Great buy

            Sounds great. Not over powering in the cab. Only down side is it had no notches cut out for factory pipe guide pins. But mad some myself with a cut off wheel in about 10 mins. Definitely worth the buy.

            Beast mode!

            The box arrived quick and it took me about an 1hr to pull out the factory muffler and 15 min to put in the new one. The sound is great, the sound will wake up your neighbors in the morning. When driving with cruise control at 70-75 mph, you barely hear them, but it scares me when I need to accelerate a few times. Love them make the HEMI comes out!!!

            Sounds Great !!!

            Took me 2 hours to install for an average joe. No experience at all not a mechanic or anything just watch the videos and your good. Took my a while to take the big ol muffle off the hardest part of the whole thing is I had to unhook the rest of the exhaust the ends where the cats are to be able to take them off the muffler, after a long exhausting shoving pulling hammering glaring at it, it came off. Took probably 5-10 min to put on the new muffler. Don’t forget to start it when you take off the muffler why not.

            I love the sound, it makes the HEMI stand out. I love driving it on the highway, because I am able to punch it and bring out the beast. LOL! I would recommend this muffler to a person that is wanting to make there truck sound beefy. I haven't noticed any performance degrade or upgrade.
