I really like it! It sounds great. But it's not very loud. So I also have a manual exhaust cutout before the muffler.

Yeah! If I did it again I would get the 2525 not the xl, because I like loud stuff. I got it installed by a friend for free but it should probably cost $50-$80 to install.

Yeah! My manual one sounds great and it was cheap. But pretty soon I want to upgrade to an electric one! Go for it!

I just need to crawl under and get ID measurements of stock CBE so I can find the right one to clamp on, not sure if 2.5" stainless piping will slide over stock or not

Banner pic is working, just hopped in here to scope your wheel/tire/lift combo. Looks great man, serious inspiration for someone like me looking for DD friendly mods.

I never had them on without wheel spacers so idk. I don't think they would have rubbed. Everyone things tire scrub is this horrible thing. It's really no big deal!
