A video clip showing before/after sounds of my 2000 Dodge Dakota quad cab 4x4 4.7L Magnum V8 with the stock Exhaust system and a performance stainless steel dual catback / muffler back Exhaust system from Mandrel Bending Solutions (MBS). The muffler is from Full Boar.
The look, sound, and fitment is excellent, as was the price. The system sounds a bit louder in the video than in real life. It's not too loud or too quiet. Inside the car, it's nearly silent at idle. It's mellow under part throttle and has a nice bark at full throttle.
Overall, I'm very happy with the Exhaust system.
Camera used is a GoPro Hero HD.

This truck has been a challenge for me over the past couple of weeks as you
will seen in the video. The lesson here is do your best to check the
engine out before you install it and even that may not be enough. Be
careful when doing a job like this especially if you are by yourself as you
can get seriously injured if your not careful so work carefully and
methodically and things should work out fine.

2005 Dodge Dakota 4.7 V8 no muffler
287 V-8, 3.55 limited slip, 6 speed manual. Stock Exhaust with the muffler removed and straight
pipe in its place. The resonators on the truck are the size of car
mufflers. Awesome sound for the price. In-cab video is with the windows
down; it is surprisingly quiet with them up.

Dodge Dakota 4.7 V8 Pulls Out Stuck Semi Truck from Deep Snow - Good Deed for the Day!
Leaving the gym I came across a tanker truck which was stuck in some deep
snow. He swung the cab over into an unplowed area with about 6" of hard
snow and his super single drive tires just weren't getting traction. I was
in my S4 at the time and told him I only lived about 10 minutes away and
would come back with my truck. The truck driver was thankful but made it
clear he didn't think a pickup would be able to pull him.
As promised I came back with the Dakota (and camera!) to see him still
struggling. Plenty of people with trucks much larger than mine drove right
on by, nobody seemed interested in helping this guy. As someone who has
been helped before, I figured I'd at least give it a shot. Plus it'd be
With all the excitement, I forgot to lock it into 4lo on the first attempt.
I don't think he was helping with the cab, you can see I was able to rock
it a bit in 4Hi. On the second try in 4lo I had no problem yanking it out.
The truck driver didn't know the weight of the truck as it sits. His full
weight is 122,000 lbs (55,338 kg). This isn't your average semi truck,
this thing was huge. I'm guessing it was 40,000 to 50,000 lbs empty.
The pickup is a 2000 Dodge Dakota SLT quad cab 4x4 4.7L V8. It's mostly
stock. The rear axle is fully locking (Powertrax No-Slip) with 3.55 gears.
Tires are 31 x 10.5 BFG TA KO's. The Exhaust is an MBS catback stainless system.
Dodge Dakota with Magnaflow Muffler
You need to listen with headphones to hear the real difference bc it added
a deep bass to the sound of the Exhaust. In my opinion, this is a good set up
for you if you want more tone but don't want a super loud "Everyone Look At
