There's nothing that thrills a truck enthusiast quite like a throaty rumble or an all-out roar coming from a 2019-2020 Dodge RAM. Of course, the suits at Dodge take that gorgeous thunder and hide it with a restrictive muffler, turning your RAM's authoritative voice into a hushed whisper. Thankfully for everyone involved, fixing this crime is easy with a performance muffler. AmericanTrucks carries a massive selection of Dodge RAM 1500 mufflers, each one with its own unique way of handling exhaust and its own distinctive tone. And tone isn't the only benefit of a new muffler. By reducing or eliminating air resistance and back pressure, an aftermarket muffler will also give you better efficiency, more bite and increased overall performance. There are three main types of mufflers: straight-through, chambered and turbo, each of which comes with a set of benefits and drawbacks. Straight-through mufflers are precisely what their name implies. They allow your exhaust to pass directly through for maximum exhaust flow. This less restrictive — and often more compact — style will provide more horsepower but less sound reduction. Some come equipped with sound-absorbing packing, but their efficacy is limited. This can be a good thing, especially if you're a street rodder or you're looking for an overpowering exhaust tone. For even more flow with no restrictions, try the close relative of the straight-through — the Dodge RAM 1500 muffler delete pipe. Chambered mufflers use specially designed chambers to bounce sound waves off one another to deaden noise or produce a roar that's street legal. The placement, size and design of these inner chambers have a significant impact on the pitch and quality of the tone you'll get. This style is more restrictive than a straight-through muffler, but you'll still see horsepower gains over a stock setup. They're ideal for RAM owners who want to announce their arrival with a growl but still want to use their truck as a daily driver. Turbo mufflers, in spite of their name, have nothing to do with whether your truck is turbocharged or not. The "turbo" verbiage is more like "this thing really gets the job done." They're built with an S-shaped inner design — just like stock — but they boast three or fewer tubes, so exhaust changes direction less. They're a great way to upgrade from a factory muffler because they'll give you added power and attitude but still keep things relatively quiet. You'll also need to determine the correct muffler for your system. A single exhaust system will need a muffler with a single outlet, while a dual system will need one with two inlets. Mufflers come in different inlet diameters, so you'll want to make sure you have one that matches the size of your exhaust pipe. The same goes for the overall size of the muffler; each one has different dimensions so you want to guarantee you've got proper clearance under the vehicle. We carry both dual and single mufflers, plus an extensive selection of inlet diameters and muffler sizes, so you'll find something here that works for you. Our Dodge RAM 1500 direct fit mufflers come in a range of materials, but you'll find two main varieties: stainless steel and aluminized steel. You want something sturdy that can handle impacts from road debris, highly pressurized exhaust gases and corrosion. Aluminized steel is frequently more affordable and offers excellent durability, but isn't as corrosion-resistant as stainless steel, making it perfect for drier climates. Stainless steel mufflers provide better corrosion resistance and typically last longer, so they're a good choice if you live in a wetter climate or someplace where road salt is used. Purists might also be concerned about the finish, and we carry a variety so you can keep your undercarriage looking sharp. You're sure to find something that will match or complement your style, including black, silver and bare steel. So unleash the true potential of your RAM and give it back that natural roar with mufflers from American Trucks. And, as always, you can buy with confidence knowing we provide helpful customer service from reps who know their stuff, a generous 30-day return policy and free shipping on all orders over $75.
