No you can simply swap out the stock muffler for a aftermarket muffler

Are planning on running a side exit exhaust or duals out the back in the future?

Flowmaster and Magnaflow are the popular choices

I cant recall hearing a gibson exhaust on a ranger. Look in the phone book for muffler shops and they may be cheaper than getting a bolt on system off the internet

im trying to think what this other exhaust is called it sounds really good. i actually had a thread asking what to get.
it starts with dyno... i think. not sure. but it does sound great.
ill look around try to find what its called. but if you get a flowmaster youll probally sound like a rice rice. no offence.
i use to think about geting a flowmaster until i heard the sound of the dyno.... like i said i cant remember to much of what its called. sorry.

No, and people dont pass emissions without cats unless their year of vehicle isnt required to have cats. Another great thing about Oklahoma, we dont have emissions...We dont give a fuck about your precious environment.
