Truck too loud with aftermarket exhaust

I have a 2003 Silverado 2500 with dual exahust and cherry bomb extremes, and its too loud. Got lit up by the police for it being too loud

Is there anything I can do cheap to calm it down a little? I've heard of people packing their exhausts, is this an option? Not even sure what that means. Or is it basically just put in new, quieter mufflers?

Its got this muffler now, except instead of 2 into 1, its just 1 into 1 (one for each pipe).

I still have the oem muffler, but I modified the muffler system to be duals. OEM, it was two pipes that went into one large OEM muffler, I cut it off at the two inputs and put in two cherry bombs and pipes to the rear.

Originally it was going to be a performance truck, had planned a locker differential, hptuners tuning software, nitrous, larger tires etc, but $ became tight. Right now the nitrous is hooked up but I don't use it because it just smokes one tire. I wanted a good flow muffler but didn't realize it would be as loud as it is. People think I have a diesel.

5spd, 475hp with the 150 shot. Its no 10 second car, but its not too slow

Here's MSpaint of my truck exhaust. About the only place to add mufflers would be where the ones are currently. Can I pack the current ones and make them quieter?

Front of truck

rear of truck

Get some real mufflers, thrush turbo is cheap and quiet enough.
