Removing resonators

I just replaced the resonators with 4'' pipes ending with 5'' Chrome tips from Mopar Ram Diesel. I have a hitch taking the center spot (removed for the moment) so the pipes are relocated to each side. The sound is great, deep and burbly but the F?% Drone came back but tolerable this time and only around 1600-1900 rpm.
Performance wise it surely helped some but when I retested 0-60, I got the same 3.82 as before. The look of those 5'' rolled lips Chrome tips is just awsome and if I decide to change to the Borla Touring + headers to gain HP, I'll reuse those for sure, the visual impact fits the truck's to a T and is much better when seen live than on a pic.
Here are some pics:

No, but very practical to get a Hitch in the center where it belongs

With the hitch in there, it looks a little better. One thing I always loved about our rigs was the dual center exhaust....

..... I guess you do what you have to when you need a hitch.

Doesn't look too terrible.

Maybe you could get a hitch cover like my wife has on her Aviator.

It is grey plastic and fills the hole flush, looks nice and smooth. not a plug,
although a cool hitch plug would look better than nothing in there.
