    My buddy got the Gibson Super Truck on his 2010 5.3 and loves the sound. The only problem is crusing at highway speeds it sounds like an old tractor.

    Go to youtube or any other video posting site and type in "2010 Silverado Exhaust" and you will pull up videos of people with different exhausts/mufflers. You can get an idea of the sound you'd like on your truck.

    We can not tell you what you would like on your truck and each muffler is different


    Also make sure you get a quality shop to weld it on and not clamp it

    X2 on SmokeU's comment. Just listening to them on the internet doesn't really help that much. A lot of times the sound quality isn't very good due to the camera that was used or the speakers you are listening to.

    I would listen to trucks around you and if you here one you like ask the owner what he has. Everybody likes something differant. I have Magnaflows on our trucks and like them.

    Do you think I want a cat back exhaust or just muffler? Everyone I ever knew only has true dual straight pipe welded on with no mufflers haha. Loud but not for a new truck! What are some good catback systems?

    It’s all a bought how much money you want to spent are you planning on installing headers at later date? If so you might want to consider true duels with 2 mufflers if not then you can go with a muffler 3” in and two 2 ” out let for duel tail pips. I like the Flow Master 40 sound but every one has there own preference.

    Isn't there some sort of issue with the Active Fuel Management making some systems sound like tin cans? I don't think that I would want to disable the system so is there an exhaust system available that would sound good when the AFM kicks to 4 cylinders?
