Default Best Exhaust

I was wondering if anyone knows what the best sounding exhaust system is for my 2000 Dodge Dakota.

don't think there is a best, It is usually up to the individual owner. I have duals with headers and glass packs, my wife hates it.

This is what I installed about a month ago. Spintech 4.7 Y pipe and side exit catback without any cats on my 01 Dakota. Also installed a Summit Racing electric cutout on Sat.

its going to be up to you as to what is best, check you tube for videos of dakotas, your engine, and different exhausts to hear what each would sound like

I agree, get on youtube and start listening. You'll get a good idea on what they all sound like.

That sucks about the tips. I've never heard of that one. Just amazing with all the different laws from state to state!

Just installed an XLerator (AP version of magnaflow), high flow metal cat, and duals out the back (2 1/2" system). Bought mandrel bent pipes and late model 2 Dakota bevel tips.

Sounds like a beast. I think I'll get better gas mileage...cuz when I drop the right foot, you can really hear it. Tips exit straight back and just about 2 inches beyond bumper.

Forgot to mention the fresh transmission...all around, with cold air intake, trans, and new exhaust, hopefully I'll see a slight mpg increase...although it's cost a bit to get there.
