    First of all, nice truck! Any pics? What's the motor?

    As for exhaust - Does the truck have headers? - Either way, I suspect you are looking at a custom exhaust. I looked quickly at Gibson's sight and don't see anything for K25. As for sound, I like a nice throaty truck sound, like the old big blocks. Not rappy and annoying like most of the duals guys are running today. I had a Gibson 3" single on a pickup and it sounded great. Not too loud, but you knew it was there. That sound comes from a huge "Big Truck Muffler" Mine was at least 8 inches in diameter, and better than 30" long. I think that old classic would sound awesome like that.

    All I can say is get what you hear that sounds good, I just put on a V-force exhaust and its been fine. as far as looks all you see is the tips so get super long ones like my 24 inchers.

    I'm guessing the cats disappeared a long time ago on the 79. It's thirty years old!
