Default Level lifted , now what muffler

I tinted my front windows to match the rest of the truck and installed my Summit Engineering 2.5 leveling spacers on the front today.

Now I really want to get a good muffler on it to make it sound good and get a little more out of that HEMI but I do not want the horrible drone sound when it goes into ECO mode. My dad put a catback MBRP stainless kit on his Challenger and it sounds horrible when MDS kicks in.
Any suggestions on what to get ?
I called Summit racing and he suggested a Magnaflow 20" with 3"in and two 2.5" outs.

I've heard nothing but good things about the 20" Mag. I run a FloMaster which can have a little drone at 64mph, my resolution for that is to go 65. I also had mine welded on vs bolted, never a fan of bolts when a weld is possible!

Your lift looks great and should clear a nice 34 or 35 inch tire when you're ready, those are always an investment.

I have the 18" magnaflow. It drones at high teens in the rpm range.

Thanks, I'm going to wear out the stock tires since I will have to put up my 1st born child as collateral for the tires I want.

Everywhere I look I see that the Magnaflow 20" is the on to go with.
Thanks

Well I did something I never do, went with the less expensive and let the sales guy talk me into an "off brand".
He said that he will install it and if I don't like it he will remove it for free and install the Magnaflow for free.
He talked me into a 20" XLerator AP stainless steel factory replacement. It sounds great and has a 100k mile warranty . My buddy with flowmasters said hes going to go and swap his out.

Good idle sound but gets a little loud at 3500 rpm. Not so loud that its annoying yet. So far I'm very happy with it .
