    Red hot glass pack muffler dumped preaxle raptor liner bed and top rails and fenderflares and rocker panels. Hunter side steps. Plasti-dipped upper fenders and emblems. satin black spray paint here and there inside and out. 5100's set to 1.75" up front and modified zuk mod coil spring lift for about 2" in rear paired with 5100 also. C channel front bumper.

This is how I did mine, would look much better I'm sure if a shop did it all one piece, but I did what I could without a bender. I don't think the sound is gonna be much different side or back. I originally thought u meant out the side infront of the tire for some reason, which would obviously make cab noise more, but shorter exhaust exit means a little better throttle response as well. Sorry to get off tangent since I assume thats not what u meant anyway.

    Benefit= looks 50 million times better

    One way won't be louder than the other. Dumping it will be a little louder inside the cab because if you go out the back the sound is aimed away from you.

    Then no one sees any exhaust at all. I just terminated mine behind the rear axle and added an angled tip to deflect the exhaust away from the spare. With a stock muffler there is no difference in sound.

    do duals swept to the same side exit. Looks much better on these trucks with smaller beds

    Hmmm. To bad you couldn't do a dual setup and have each tip exit like RCfreaks'. Out of the ower side of the bed, near the cab.
