So i purchased a Hushpower II 304 Stainless Muffler short version. I had it installed today and i like it a lot. No real cab drone at all. During idle u can tell a small difference over our stock muffler but once you give it some gas it purs nicely. I would highly recommend this exhaust to someone looking for an improvement over stock , but that doesn't want it to be super loud or have to worry about the cab drone at highway speeds. I will post a video to Youtube this week hopefully for those interested in hearing how it turned out. When i was purchasing it i searched around and i don't think anyone has this installed on there Colorado because i was unable to find anything except for posts asking about them. so if anyone has any questions feel free to ask.


**This is my opinion coming from having a super 44 flow-master on my previous truck, the in cab drone was horrible even at idle it was UN-bearable almost. But i am very pleased with the Hushpower II, this exhaust is at the top of my choice list for my next vehicle so far.**

What's the price?
I ordered my muffler off of eBay because the shop i go to and trust didn't carry them. so the muffler cost was $80 w/ free shipping and the shop charged me $70 for install which i felt was a good firm deal. took them about an hour to install and i was out the door. price would have been cheaper but due to the short muffler, fabrication was needed and extra pipe to align everything correctly.

I have the Hushpower DBX and there is almost NO DRONE. I love it at highway and cruising speeds, but with the JTR and no second cat its kinda ricey when you get on it.

I cant wait to hear how the HP-2 sounds.

Nice I will have t try this. Inhave a flowmaster 70 which is gigantic with two exits but the exit pipes are rotting.. I was going to go with a walker quiet flow muffler but I might try to hp2. I have a gutted cat and high flow second cat/ midpipe so I'm just afraid it will sound ricy too :/

i dont think it would sound ricey if you get the shorty version it is def. louder and has a slightly deeper tone than the full sized muffler that's why i went with the shorty version.

It's really quiet at idle! I'm suprised
i know thats what i was going for. i have a remote start so when i had my old exhaust it was so loud i could hear it all the way across my house and im on the 3rd floor it was way to loud and in cab drone was horrible this deff a improvement step and im pleased so far.

thanks for the embedded link, and im glad you liked the sound. how did it compare to the sound of yours . i dont think it sounds ricey at all.
From the video it sounds deeper. Also I think a lot of my problem is the huge camaro style tip I have. I think it gives it a megaphone effect on it
