I'd say just go with 40 series, no cat's... dumped?
have them cut the dumps similar to pic, closer to the muffler the better, pointed directly at the ground it will turn the truck into a "bass drum" creating a deeper sound


found some pics.. LIKE THIS

NOT like this.. DUMP FAIL!!!!

will quiet it some, but recommend adding 3" or 4" tips, they will deepen the sound

no problem, anytime.. do the dumps in 3" pipe..

open end flowmasters (no turnouts) sound good too... just make sure you have muffler a few feet away from rear diff due to heat.
