Default New Exhaust

Hey my name is nick and i just joined. I have a 2000 ranger with a 2.5l 4 bangger and a 5 spd. I am wantin to get a new muffler tomorrow just to add a little sound. I was wonderin if anyone has ran a glasspack and how it sounded. or if they have ran a thrush muffler and how it sounded, any advice is greatly appreciated

Ran a glasspack on my first car. Gave it some throatiness, but it was a V8. Cheap and you can install yourself with a sawzall and some clamps.

i actually just finished putttin my muffler on after numerous trips to the parts store. my exhaust piping was 2 imch not 2.25 so had to return my muffler. but i got the thrush turbo muffler. it sounds alright. i thought it could be a little louder. its got a nice little rumble outside the truck but inside the truck it sounds almost stock. but maybe that will change after it gets broke in. but for the money you cant beat it. does anyone kno what i could to make it a little more louder?
