So, as you can see, lots of opinions, which is good, and plenty of options. Basically, get what ya like and what fits into your budget. My wife drives our DD the most, so that was also a HUGE factor in my decision. I wanted the sound improved, but not crazy obnoxious. She digs the sound now, but I guarantee if it were too loud or the drone was nauseating, stock would’ve went right back in place. Ultimately, I totally agree with your opening post. I too thought it was a shame to muzzle such a nice sounding engine like the HEMI. Plus, I like all the looks when our kick ass grocery-getter starts singin’. Opening it up is totally worth which ever route you decide.Picking up my RT tomorrow and not to impressed with the exhaust sound. What is my best option for an upgrade and not having an annoying drone?
