??exhaust help??

Just wanted to get some input on a setup. Its gonna be all 2 1/2in mandrel bent pipe, flowmaster 10 or Flowmaster original 40 (havent decided). Now, im trying to decide on whether i want to dump the exhaust after the muffler or just have a mandrel bent tail pipe. I will be sticking with a flowmaster but not sure which one. So dont try to encourage me to get something else. I just need the input on getting either a Flowmaster 10 or original 40 and either mandrel bent tailpipe or dump. What do you guys think is louder/sounds better?
Thanks guys.
I forgot to put in here that it is a 4.0l

You just can't beat that Flowmaster sound, I would go with the 40 series just to keep it to a nice rumble, no need to have a stupid loud 6 cylinder. Do you have a lift? when I put mine on I went with a 44 series off road 2.5" output then got a piece of 2.5" pipe bent up to match the stock ultra restrictive pos and had to cut and bend it to clear the rear swaybar due to the drop brackets, it was kind of a pain but the end result was a good flowing exhaust that comes out in the stock location. I was debating having it dump out the side but I didn't want the exhaust coming out right under the door where my kids sit, and also I was worried about it getting crushed between the sub frame and a rock.

Go with a 40/44 and dump it after the muff.

Side note: I've seen the diamond-plate "off road" version but can't find any info on it, thickness or weight or anything to show that it is in fact any beefier than the standard version.

I had an exhaust put on after my pipe rusted off on mine. local shop installed it for me, had 2 1/4 inch pipe bent up following the stock location along with a Flowmaster 40 Series. I really like the sound. its not to loud at all highway and in town driving it is surprisingly quiet and it also has a decent sound when you get on it a bit. hope this helps you

Thanks guys. Ya i agree mudruna about the stupid loud thing. I think i will just gow with the original 40 then 2 1/2in mandrel bent tailpipe exiting out the stock location. I have no lift so theres nothing to worry about there.

I sure like running the exhaust all the way back. Keeps the exhaust gases out of the cab.

it is a bit beefier than a regular flowmaster, not that a flowmaster is a weak muffler to begin with, haven't bashed it off any rocks yet but I am sure it will hold up fine. And it isn't much heavier than a regular 44 series.
