The banks monster is cool; I just dont care for how is goes big on the welded-on tip.
My JBAs are showing the wear...and are less than three years old/15kmiles. The chrome tip is spotting a bit.... I like the sound-a nice rumble at idle, not farty.

Just swapped out my muffler this past weekend. Tech had to cut a piece of pipe to add on since the new muffler is shorter then stock. Then I asked to cut off the tip and add a nicer, longer chrome piece. Sucks that it's still on stock pipes but at least now it actually sounds like a truck. I'm actually really happy with it because the truck starts up cleaner, moderate rumble at idle, and accelerates a lot cleaner. Feels like a different truck. It's surprising to hear how often I accelerate it now, LOL. I couldn't hear/or feel that before. Something must have been up with my stock muffler because it's made a significant change on my truck and all I did was swap out the muffler for now. Will do a full swap of the entire thing when I have some other mods taken care of.

Jardine exhaust sounds nice to me. I like the borlas on the Titans. Haven't really decided yet, but I bought the Flowmaster Super44.. it's actually quite loud. Yet not ricey.
