Recently had to remove old exhaust system as the salt and calcium
rotted the whole thing. Rather than purchase another stock system,
my buddy suggested and AFE stainless system. Seemed like a
good idea, stainless, better flow etc. The product arrived, and
removed old system and started to install new without a lot of grief
...biggest problem was with the studs. However, the down side is
that at idle it is a little harsh but at load, I cannot stand the noise...it
is a freaking ungodly drone. I was not wanting the sound of glass
packs but would like a quality stainless system rather than all of this
aluminized sh*t that falls apart in a couple of seasons. The other
option is to have a local shop install a merge collector in order to
install another muffler that has a 3" inlet/outlet and a somewhat
quieter muffler, screw all this performance nonsense if I cannot drive
this truck without getting headaches.

Stealth... The only way to fly!!!

There is a muffler like deal called a resonator or something like that. The old Cadillac cars had them in the tail pipe near the bumper. That should quiet the system down and be easy to replace.
Are the hangers in your system insulated
It might last until you move to Ft. Worth. What is this rust stuff you speak of?

JK.. Good Luck.. Don S..
