    Those Vibrants will definitely dampen. Should help with the drone.

    I tried to record with my iPhone but the sound didn't come across well.

    I think your better off selling it and buying a TRD or @dirtydeeds exhasut.

    I'll second on the @dirtydeeds. I put their 8" system on my truck this week, and I couldn't be happier with the sound. Quiet at idle and highway speed, growls nicely when you get on the gas.

    That resonator will only pull down the other frequencies. Not the 130 hz you’re hearing as drone.

    To fix the issue you’ll want helmholtz resonators. But that system will prove very challenging as to where to install them.

    Their ultimate location is difficult to install there because it’s dual pipes.

    Thanks, everyone for your input on this. I'm still undecided on what to do next.

    I like the way they slightly rumble. You think it’s too much? Or there is drone down the highway?

    Yea for sure. Doesn’t sound like it’s forced. When you let off the pedal it’s got a nice rumble, not obnoxious. I’m not a fan of the super loud exhausts.

    This is an old post. He took off the magnaflow and installed the TRD exhaust.

    Did you notice any mpg gains with your exhaust?

    I had Magnaflow and then swapped it out with a TRD.

    I didn't see any gain on MPG.

    Just installed my magnaflow system. Definitely not loud. Actually hardly noticeable at idle. Driving range has a little drone in the cab, just enough to let you know it's there. I think it would be nice to have a bit more db's with keeping the same deep tone. I don't like other over the top obnoxious systems at all with their "patented sounds" 20210610_105817.jpg 20210610_115333.jpg

    I really like the dual tailpipe look.

    but...how do you lower the spare tire? looks like the pipe is over it.
