Need Exhaust Advice - cat back and mids to complement LTs

Hi guys,
I could use your expert opinions, vendors included, on how to finish my exhaust setup. Here's my current configuration:
OBX LT's (let's avoid the bashing here please)
Off-Road Mid-Pipes (no cats)
Stock LS3 Cat-Back
JRE Tune

Here are my goals:
Want cats to be emissions-legal and avoid exhaust smell my wife hates
Want cat-back/mids setup with no drone

So far, I have considered the Doug Thorley cat-back, as that seems to be an affordable solution, but I'm not sure what to do with the mids. I'd prefer something I can bolt on myself over having to weld on generic cats.

Any suggestions are much appreciated, thanks!

Long Tubes are not emissions legal and are advertised for Off Road use only so you would need to check your smog laws in the county you live in.

I think the Kooks mids bolt up to the OBX headers so order the Kooks catted mids. The JBA exhaust sounds great and the price point is very low if you are looking for a affordable solution. Your car would sound like this!
