Default 89 xlt 4x4 muffler?????

hello FRF this is my first post of a thread on this site. i have a 89 ford ranger xlt. it was my first vehicle that my dad handed down to me that was his when he bought brand new. its a good ol truck has lasted all these years it has 135000 miles on it and runs good just minor stuff needs to be replaced. the body of the truck is in very good condition never been wrecked just just a small thing of rust on the bed."any way to take care of that". since it been just sitting there for years and was only used when needed to do yard work. i decided to work on it a lil and make it a dd since it feels neglected. at first the original exhaust after the muffler corroded and came off now i have rust and cracks in the muffler which is giving out a annoying sound. i wanna replace it with a decent muffler with a quiet sound.. any recommendations on a brand something i can pick up at a autozone or pepboys. really dont know anything about mufflers just i like them sound like stock.

thanks in advance ill try to get some pics of the truck up later today

Sounds like a decent price to me. What flowmasters model are you getting?

i just asked for a decent quiet muffler nothing aggressive he said labor and parts 120 also said since i want to do the lighting style muffler he has to cut the pipe a lil far back to install the new one for it to work... the reason y i want it quiet is cause i use to be in to loud exhaust on my cars and bikes but then getting tired of it while driving gets annoying so i switched them all back to stock
