Howdy! do you have a video of this process? Im thinking of doing the same to mine, not trying to dump 800 bucks into a full kit just yet but curious as to how it sounds. thanks bud!Exhaust modification. ‘05 4.7 Dakota.
Has two resonators and a large stock muffler in middle.
Removed the stock muffler from the middle, replaced with pipe. Left both resonators in place. Has a nice rumble to it now.

looks easy enough to me! weekend project!It is really simple to straight pipe it, leave the resonators at front and back. The result is a really great sound. Low rumble. Not loud. Not raspy. Not sharp. NO DRONE. Nice and smooth growl.
Easy to cut the muffler out. Cut it out as far to the back as possible, just in front of the hanger. If I remember, I believe we did not actually cut the pipe at all. Just cut the clamps off and took the muffler out. A piece of straight pipe and 2x 22.5 deg elbows to makeup the offset to line up. Maybe 25$ in a piece of pipe and fittings. This was the easiest, the cheapest, and frankly the best sounding as well as performance option. And I have been through my fair share of trucks and exhaust systems. I was really please at how little time and cash we had to put into this one to get exactly what we wanted out of it.
If I do get a video I will come back here and post a youtube link for ya.
