Default Exhaust Tip Question Please Help!

I want to add an exhaust tip so my tailpipe doesn't look so extremely small. It looks even smaller after I added a 3 inch boy lift.

I would like a exhaust tip that makes my truck louder and sounding real nice. (also have a flowmaster)

Any suggestions?

Just buy something with a larger outlet. I bought a tip with a 3" outlet and it definitely has a slightly different tone now. I also saw some 4" outlets; they would be louder, but surely more ricey. I say that because I think most of them include a resonator, for the 2.25" inlet anyway. As far as brands go, I wouldn't waste your money. Exhaust tips are 99% cosmetic.

Thanks for the advice. Where did you get your tip ? Or where do you recommend?

It depends on your engine really. In some cases a tip actually can enhance an exhaust system, but in most cases concerning Ford Rangers in general a tip really won't do much unless you do go with the echo tips. The best place I think you can go is to a local exhaust shop. If they're really good at what they do they can fix you up with a nice tip that fits the style of your ranger. Basically all a tip will do on a ford ranger is make it alot quieter than it really is. I noticed this during my years of trying different exhaust set ups and systems.

Does that white lead wire hook up to 12v so you get LED color?

This, On my truck I have a 18" long 2.5in to 4in out tip, with my muffler, my truck sounds like it has a v8, not a 3.0, before with just a glasspack and no tip my truck sounded like it belonged in a china shop. Tips basically resonate any sound coming from the muffler, the longer and bigger the better.
