Heres the thing, if you plan to wheel alot dont go for the side exit, it has the possibility of getting ripped off easier at times. Mine mainly stays on the street and when it does wheel, it does nothing hard or normally deals with snow.
The other thing is, if you go side exit, you have to keep it clean, compared to dumped is out of site, out of mind
My friend has the same muffler on his 4.0, sounds great, but doesnt have the resonance that mine has, because his is dumped, well, shitily at least.
Keep that in mind when you choose.

Side exhaust, especially if 5 spd, i LOVE the sound of downshifting in my truck, its like an eargasm.
