I received my Magnaflow 14586 yesterday. I decided to save some bucks and install it myself. Heres a couple of pics from my phone.
This is the tailpipe, right after the muffler. I secured it with safety wire so when the muffler is removed, i could weld the new one in the exact same place.

This is the factory muffler. I tried to cut it out so that it was the exact same length of the magnaflow. I actually had to trim the magnaflow down about an inch on each side because the limited space under the truck.

I tacked the new muffler in the factory position, then removed the pipe so that I could finish out the welds. Here it is ready to go back into the truck.


When i was done, i started the truck and it was super quiet. I stuck my ear up to the tailpipe and you could here a slightly more aggresive tone, but no louder than stock. When accelerating it sounded just barely louder than stock, but you can tell it has a v8 now. Hopefully it will get a little louder with time like everyone says. Its barely different than stock, but I am still happy with it.

The tip is a factory TSS option.

Shouldve went w/ the 18"....I heard a noticeable difference right away w/ my 18" Mangnaflow and the tone has gotten better over the past several months. Sounds nice and deep.

Just curious, why did you pay extra and opt for the polished muffler?

Maybe, Im still happy with the 22 though. I opted for stainless for durability. Where I live rust is a serious issue.

Please post back after 500 miles or so. I am interested in the same muffler (22"). I don't want it loud... just want a very slight rumble. TIA

I like that mirror idea. :lol:

Im starting to think installing it was a mistake. I cant seem to keep my foot out of the throttle now. Its gotten slightly louder and it sounds great!! Still quiet under normal circumstances, but great V8 sound under acceleration. Im very pleased.
