Help with Flowmaster 17432

I just bought a Flowmaster 17432 for my Taco and the idea was to install it myself. I did not read the entire instructions in the page and at the very bottom it says:

For a cleaner appearance and more secure installation, we highly recommend welding all slip fit connections.

Anyone has tried to install it without the welding part?!?! I am going to be OK if I don't weld it?
Any help will be gladly appreciated.

Yes, you will be fine if don't weld it. Just use the appropriate size u-bolts.

Yeah I have a 2006 Tacoma with the Flowmaster 50 series dual exhaust kit. I didnt weld neither and just used the u-bolts that came with it and it worked out just fine.
