Re: Exhaust Recommendation
I have a '01 Ram 4x4 360 Quad and had the same dillema. The BEST deal I found was buying a Summit cat back dual system for, I think, $189. It comes with two 3" tailpipes, a throaty but mellow muffler, a intermediate pipe, and the pipe that connects to the catalyst. That pipe is long enough to use on the longer trucks, so it had to be sawed off to length for my truck. If you email or call Summit they can inform you if this system will work on your '02. I would like to use shorty headers, but it would be a sin to use un-coated ones on a new truck and the coated or stainless ones are OUTRAGIOUSLY expensive and some sets DO require some cutting and welding, making it a more complicated task. This dual system gave me between 1~2 mpg, and sounds very good. Sounds like horsepower, not a noisey muffler. I also bought a couple of cans of Hi-temp ceramic header paint and coated all of the pipes and clamps to keep them nice. Also added a pair of chrome tips for the finishing touch.
