I got my exhaust finished up. I'm running a Flowmaster 40 Series Delta Flow muffler. I'm not sure how I ended up choosing that muffler way back when I bough it...I think I heard it on another guys truck at a parts store but I really didn't research it much before buying it. Before I had the exhaust dumping just before the axle and it was loud as hell from inside the cab. With the exhaust out back under the bumper it's a bit quieter but I may end up with a different muffler. I've been told it doesn't sound obnoxious going down the road, it just seems to drone in the cab a bit more than I think I would like on longer drives.

I can't recall if you have sound and heat insulation in your cab.
Just wondering how much that would affect the noise.
Yrs back I had a chopped top 62 Chevy burb with glass packs and one 4hr trip on the highway just about drove me mad.
Got rid of them the next week and went to Corvair Turbo mufflers.

^^^^^As of now no insulation whatsoever. Future plans are new weather stripping and a fully insulated and carpeted cab. I think I'll be installing a tamer muffler before any extended drives in it.
