The Gibson Dual Sport Exhaust was an awesome addition to my Ranger. From the second I turned the key I noticed a HUGE difference. It literally roared to life. Even my Dad was impressed by it; said it had the throaty sound of his old '69 Mustang in its day. Definitely has a lot more power than before; not sure about the mileage - maybe a small increase, I haven't gotten around to calculating it. Packaging was great, shipping was also good - it came through the mail about a week after I bought it. Instructions were a bit confusing and vague: the directions say to be sure not to damage any stock bolts or gaskets. With all the rust to my flange bolts, I was forced to hacksaw them off so I went to the Ford dealership and bought new bolts. $33 later I realized the kit had replacement bolts - that would have been nice to know. Other than the whole fiasco with the rusted bolts, installation went pretty flawlessly. No unusual tools are necessary. If you have a lifted truck, be prepared to deal with a little extra annoyance, as the pipe is forced to fit pretty snugly around the aftermarket shocks, which pins it against the spare tire until everything settles into its place. The double-barrel tips look awesome. Great combo with the K&N Cold Air Filters. I strongly recommend.

Since there were only a few after marker exhausts available for the 2008 Ranger, this was a good selection. It was reasonably easy to install. Needed a few adjustments. Looks great, sounds great. Good buy for the money.
