    Is there a reason to leave the exhaust the way it sits, lately the exhaust has been bugging me like crazy. Axle cut or dumped exhaust, anybody had issues with rattling

    Dump/chop FTW. No issues here and I don’t have to worry about clearance.

    Looks just like @singletrack_ftw's photo. Zero cost. Used a sawzall. Could use a hand saw too, if you don't have access to power tools. Took about 5 minutes total.

    Why? And for where? Do you realize how many trucks have exhaust chopped just like this?

    I’m not going to let the truck sit and idle in the garage.
