^you have a hemi in your dakota, that's awesome
The 4.7L does sound great. I put an aftermarket y pipe on my ram 4.7L and a 14" straight through muffler (no name brand) and it sounds amazing. I have just very slight drone at 70mph+. Here's a video from my cell phone(doesn't really pick up the full sound). It's actually significantly louder in person.
Thanksgiving weekend I'm redoing my whole exhaust. I'm getting rid of the cats, and swapping a 22" magnaflow muffler(y pipe inside), and it will all be SS and mandrel bent. It's all mandrel currently, but not all SS. I don't mind how loud my current setup is but I drive A LOT so even though the highway drone is minimal and not really an issue, it really can suck on those long drives where you have a headache or are hung over or whatever you know lol. I knew my truck was loud but didn't really understand until the wife and I switched vehicles one day and I heard the truck drive off, I honestly felt bad for my neighbors at that moment lol.
