no. 3.0's do not like to run with straight pipes, and sound like absolute crap. do all of humanity a favor and put a muffler on it, and be respectful of others.

for loudest soundwise possible make sure your muffler is right under where your bed starts, it will make the whole bed into a giant sound ressonator and sound pretty damn cool

I ran mine for about an hour like this as well, sounds fine just resonated in the cab like crazy because of where it dumped at.

Tell me about it, I have a Thrush dual and I get pulled over on a daily basis, I think Maine's laws are bull**** I am all for being respectful to others but that's to a point, I think Maine has REALLY gone over bored
