    Just found this site earlier today and it seems it is full of usefull info, I'm Mike and have a 2009 Z-71 crew cab I will be buying a 2in lift kit soon and also tires the truck has 18in factory wheels so I'm not sure how big a tire to get I would also like to add on a new exhaust for a better sound but am torn between flowmaster and magnaflow. If you guys have any suggestions on these things I would appreciate the input and I'm sure there will be more questions to come as I start putting these thing on the truck, I'll put pics up when I start. Thanks for the help

    Welcome!! Nice name btw. I'm partial to Magnaflow because that's what I'm running and am familiar with it and I am very satisfied. I don't have any experience with Flowmaster but I have heard good things about them too. Someone will respond soon who can provide some good advice for you.

    Welcome aboard! I like my Flowmaster 40 Series just fine but like Mike, I don't have any experience with anything else. I honestly don't know that one is necessarily better than the other. Again, hopefully someone else will be able to help out. Best of luck.

    Hey Mike, welcome to the club. I also have Magnaflow & I like the sound & performance, but I have nothing bad to say about Flowmaster either, & it's really what your opinion is that counts. There are places online where you can go & listen to them that might help you with your decision.
