De nada! The 18" doesn't drone very bad, it isn't annoying, but you can hear it after the muffler is broken in. The 22" will sound very close to stock, but still have the improved flow rate. The resonators don't hurt exhaust flow so I would leave them in. My resonators are still in but I have thought about removing them for a little more sound. They are right in front of the tips, so you don't have to mess with them if you don't want to.
Are you looking at welding in a muffler or a Mufflex swap?
Here is the big muffler for ya if you want it welded in!

I liked the "DE NADA". I will take it to be welded at the local exhaust shop by the East gate here at Fort Hood. They did a good job at my old truck when I first get here back in 2008. They install a flowmaster Supper 44" on my F150. Man the sound on that exhaust was good, but the drone in the freeway was too loud.

I think the 22" will do it, since is close to stock. I will order it. Thanks.

I'm thinking about using a 24" Magnaflow without resonators. My charger sported Two Super 44's without them so it can't be any louder than that.

I want it to be decently loud, without being obnoxious. I had thought about doing a DI/DO as someone suggested above. If you do that, then you don't need an H or X pipe, the muffler takes it's place, giving you better flow.

Anyway, how does the 24" sound without resonators?

Just note that that's only true if the muffler has the x pipe inside of it, not all have it...also, the x pipe outside of the muffler will flow better than the one inside the muffler(for whatever the one's I've seen in the muffler don't flow as well). Either way, the difference will be small...just make sure the muffler has the x pipe inside.

The Magnaflow catback kit is a 22" muffler without resonators...look up 16869 videos on youtube!

That's exactly what I have and it sounds great. I tow my skiis alot so droning would be a real issue for me. No drone and great sound. Startup, full throttle, downshifting. Love the sound all the way around.

If I go with a single in, dual out with resonators removed, I can get the total package for around $130. $100 for the muffler/welding in, and another $30 to remove the resonators. Though have replacing the resonators with glasspacks as well, though I'm not sure how that would sound on a truck.

resonators and glass packs are nearly the same exact thing....no sense swapping them...

^^^^Said it before I could. Either keep or remove the resonators. Replacing w/ glasspacks is redundant.
