LTH with x pipe and axel back or LTH and cat back?????

Okay people.. one thing I am definately looking to do is upgrade my exhaust system..

My main wonder when looking around at different systems is whether to buy a LTH that come with an x pipe and an axel back exhaust that fits or to buy LTH with no x pipe and buy a cat back that has an x pipe...

When looking around there seem to be savings to be made buying the LTH that comes with the x pipe (sometimes $150+ that can go towards shipping)

So now I want to know why this happens and if it is because cat back exhausts are of better quality and worth the extra money or not?

get LTH w/ cats and a catback exhaust OR buy a complete kit from the headers to the tips. i would recommend the latter.

i have ARH LTH, cats, and x-pipe and want to get the rest of their exhaust they recently started selling just for completeness.

I would recommend just the LTH, cats and X pipe. The stock muffler is the least restrictive when it comes to exhaust. I have the same setup and love it. Plus it keeps the cops at bay a bit by using the stock exhaust.
