Default Best dual exhaust option?

Hi there,
i'm looking to put dual exhaust on my truck and am looking for the best option. I want a nice gurgle sound at idle but nothing thats crazy loud. I also don't want it to sound live a civic when i'm revved up. My problem is though that i have the 3.0.........so whats my best option (besides buy a bigger engine)? Flowmasters seem pretty popular on the rangers.....?
Thanks!

a lot of people recommend the magnaflow 40 series, its a decent price alternative but since we have V6s they are going to whine at higher Rpms, others prefer a Gibson exhaust. I think there is a thread where people posted sound clips of their exhaust. I don't know where it is though

I have a thrush dual exhaust, and i couldn't be happier with it. It has the v8 sound on the bottom end and sounds good at high RPM I recommend it 100%, my friend had a Gibson dual and it sounds silly like a ricer

I have the muffler from a Ford Ranger Thunderbolt. It has a nice sound at idle and when you get on it.
I replaced it with a magnaflow and the magnaflow is not as loud.
