Default Good sounding exhaust

Hello all, so recently I picked up a 2000 ford ranger XTL 3L V6 and it sounds really quiet. Is their any exhaust systems that anyone has good experiences with to make it stand out of the crowd a little bit more? I have no welding exp so I would have to use clamps, but what about the 40's series or a glass packs, I want to hear your guys opinion.

YouTube has several examples of different Ranger exhaust options.

Although I'm using a Thrush welded SI/DO, and I like it. My next system will be a Gibson.

Yep. Heck, even I have a crappy exhaust video up there that I need to re-do at some point. "Good sounding" is subjective so checking there is probably your best bet.

I've had a Flowmaster 40 SI/DO on mine for about 10 years and have been very happy with it.

If I were to get a Gibson or flow master, what would be the in and out dimensions on the V6?
