Did you do exhaust already?

No reason to dump a buncha money into it to make the hemi sound good.

I just chopped the stock muffler and resonators off my magnum and threw on some flowmaster 40's. sounds like a beast. Super low rumble, but refined. This vid doesnt do it justice, way better when its under load. Total cost was like 400 installed. Should cost about half as much seeing as you dont have duals...

Haha thanks. Ill post pics in a few minutes. But all you have to do is pull up the cover under the hatch where the hook is and there is two bolts. Take those off and it slides right out!

Heres some pics of the backend.



You can see the difference in the siding where the tray used to be.


And these are the bolts that you unscrew, im pointing to one of them.

I put a system in...10 hours in the shop with most of it going into building the box. I went with two kicker L7 10" square subs...and they hit hard, especially for 10s. i think it turned out pretty good, there is clips on the bottom and wedge onto these hooks from the container tray that used to be in there. It fits snug and the box doesnt budge. I am going to build a 'cover' that hinges to the box and covers the amp. It will be separtated by a piece of wood so you can store stuff on the other side.
Heres some pics...









A big thanks to mikey and bryan from sounds and motion on this one, they were a huge help as i learned a lot and got a wicked deal.

Also, i picked up a set of ski racks for free. All ive got to do is figure out a way to mount them, probably weld on some brackets to make it fit or somthing.
