Default Gibson Exhaust System?

I've been looking around on the web for numerous Exhaust Systems.. And well The Gibson Catback Exhaust System really caught my eye.

Thanks,

Cody.

I had a 2.5 cat back gibson set up on my ranger for awhile. Cant remember which muffler it was though. Had a nice deep sound to it but just wasnt loud enough for me.

I just have a gibson muffler, not their system and I think it was work it. Mine isint real loud and it comes out in front of the right rear tire, but I think it sounds just fine.

I also have a Gibson on my truck and love it. Very deep tone at idle and stays deep all the way up to 3k rpms (at 2500 it really growls for a v6). Any higher than 3k rpms and it sounds like any other v6 with an aftermarket exhaust, they all sound raspy and high pitched, which is why I shift under 3k rpms all the time really. Loudness is perfect for a DD imo. Mine does not drone on the highway, even with my 4:10 gears and around town you will always hear it plenty well enough.

I had a Gibson on my 4o. It was an awesome exhaust. If you endure the winter salt get the stainless. My ended up rusting through and breaking all the way to were the cat and muffler pipe meet.

I've had the same exhaust on my last two Rangers-it was exhaust v2.0 on my '04 and is sitting above my garage right now. You'll definitely want to spring for the stainless-jus t remember that the pipes and muffler are stainless, but all of the hangers are not.
Great sounding exhaust on a 4.0; I only replaced it because I wanted a different look.
Gibson-wow, that's an old pic!

I had one, it was pretty quiet compared to some, however it did have a nice, deeper sound. If you're looking for extra power out of it, you really won't notice much if anything.
