if it's a V8 it will sound nice. If the pipes (nuts and bolts) aren't rusted you should be able to find an exhaust kit for the truck and "just" do it. Keep in mind it is a vehicle and nothing ever goes as planned or "just" as you put it. Don't forget gaskets.

It won't sound good. Cat back would be farely easy. I suggest keeping your money and stick with stock. It will sound like your stupid for buying it.

Personally I like deep purring exhausts and the little four banger doesn't have enough balls to produce that sound. It will sound high pitched and stupid. If you think it will sound like a Honda, it won't. if it's free do it to test it out, or do it cuz it's free. It's good practice anyway. What kind of muffler is it?

What brand of Muffler(silencer)? You know like Flomaster or Magnaflow or Auto zone special. I bet you there's dakota forums out there. You should see if any one has 2-3 inch pipes on a four banger.

I've never looked into four banger exhausts for domestic trucks, so I wouldn't know how to make it sound good. Sounding good to me would be a blown 350 with headers glass packs and 3 inch ceramic pipes.

Thats right. DLITALIEN tried telling him a few times and he is still wanting to do it. Just tell him it will sound great and he'll be fine. Let him find out the hard way.

3 inch pipes are overkill on an average four cylinder. You will actually lose power. Leave it stock, its not worth tinkering with. Spend that time and effort on changing plugs, oil, and filters, that will do you better. If youre gonna touch your exhaust anyway, just do the muffler.

Two words for you bull - open headers. Don't shift past 2nd gear and ride through town like that.. Chicks dig open headers.. Once you get past your first noise infraction you will feel much better.. DO IT!
