Durango Exhaust

It is time to do the first major mod on my 2011 Durango. The question I want to run by you guys is what to do with it. Here is what I have come up with so far.

Choice 1: Remove the big suitcase muffler, install a x-pipe and leave the rear resonators. (cheapest route and seems to be one of the most popular choices on the internet)

Choice 2: Replace the big suitcase muffler with a dual in/dual out Flowmaster and leave the rear resonators.

Choice 3: Remove the big suitcase muffler, install a x-pipe and replace the 2 rear resonators with 2 Flowmasters. (probably loudest choice)

I dont want it to be extremely loud but want to hear the HEMI roar when i get on it.

Muffler delete and leaving resonators is what I did initially on my 14 Ram. I personally liked the sound. My old boss said my truck sounded angry.
Then I put long tube headers on and OMG! I scare little kids, old ladies and hipsters on their cellphones when I start Cavram.
But I prefer it as loud as legally(?) possible.

have read a lot of different articles that removing the resonators causes a bad drone inside.

Cat-Back system is out of the question. Can't afford to do that.

It wont matter at that point. He'll be addicted to boost and just buy another muffler bearing.
