its just a thru pipe with some sort of electronic board surrounding it. The truck sounded fine with it on, stock, and it sounds the same with it off. I want to keep it off, it looks stupid. But the purpose of this thing eludes me.

Haha awesome! I bought a blue led one for my buddy as a joke, along with a turbo whistle that I put on his car while he was at school without him knowing. That was one of the funniest phone calls I have ever gotten.

{from the walmart comment section}
These were the perfect finishing touch.
I had just put a Flowmaster muffler on my four cylinder so my import would sound really cool.....like a revved up Weedeater.
I already had a 2 foot rear spoiler because I needed more rear down force on my front wheel drive car, and to maintain control at top speed(about 115 MPH).
Everyone really seems to like them because every place I go people smile really big(or laugh really hard) and point.

just goes to show :just because you can reproduce doesnt mean you should!
