    Be Smart!!!! Why Doeseveryone Buy These Damn Cat Back Systems...? Added Horse Power Deeper Sound... Yayayaya I've Heard It A Million Times!! How About You Be A Great Economic Source And Help Your Local Businesses!!!! Instead Of These Muli Million Dollar Sources! Heres A Couple Of Questions For You If You Can Answer Yes To Any Of Them Than Fine Buy It Off The Internet!

    1} Do You Plan On Removing And Reinstalling Your Exhaust?
    2} Do You Enjoy Waiting For A Fed-ex/ Ups Truck?
    3} Do You Like Getting Those Lil Stupid Ass Yellow Stickers. "sorry Nobody Was Home For Drop Off" ?
    4} Is There Not An Exhaust Shop Within 50 Miles Of Your Home?
    5} Do You Like Missing Out On The Paid Hours Of Work To Wait At Home For The Damn Package?
    6} Heres The Best..... Do You Enjoy Trying To Find Time To Reship The Package Back Because Of Damage During Shipment?

    You May Know You Will Save Almost Half Of The Cost If You Get An Exhaust Made At Your Local Shop!!! And You Can Set Up An Appointment Right There. And They Can Check For Exhaust Leaks. And Recomend The Best Muffler For Your Truck..! Just Something To Think About..

    Give Me Some Rep If You Agree!

    On the other side of the coin....

    Multi-Million dollar businesses ARE what they are for a reason. They've spent multi-millions of dollars researching and perfecting a product that'll work. People buy it, people like it, they post feedback on the forums, and it promotes more sales. You get EXACTLY what is advertised - a cookie cutter product that has pleased thousands of people over the years. Ya can't beat that!

    With local businesses - you don't know what you're getting. You can ask for something but the quality and workmanship is gonna vary from shop to shop. If you or someone you know doesn't already have work done with a local businesses - then you're taking a chance because you don't know their reputationtion or workmanship.

    I will take small jobs to the local shops. Small jobs are less expensive. If something is wrong, then I haven't wasted a lot of money. I can get a *feel* for their workmanship on small jobs. I've dealt with a couple shops in my area in the past that I've been less than satisfied with their work. I haven't found any shop yet that's been worthy of even requesting a special job.

    i got my flowmater installed at a local shop, with one of my stainless tips from my old exhaust, for a good price........but some people want the whole set-up. yeah, most of us know that its basically a muffler and relatively the same piping, but soem people want it they way they get it....so be it.

    its a point i have made in alot of exhaust threads.........just have a muffler shop install the muffler of your choice, even a nice shiny tip if wanted, and save alotta cash. but................most people are gonna go for covvenience(ordering online), over going to a shop........its just the way it happens.

    the reason catbacks are so expensive is because of stainless piping, and the exhaust is "fit specific".........although its alot more expensive to do essentially the same thing with just a muffler and factory piping. ok......im stepping off my soapbox now:D!!

    I agree, I have a little girl and I'm sure she will eventually be doing crap like that (myspace)...weird people? you must not have seen to catch a preditor.. ...there is some downright scary shit that goes on there....But like I said, teenagers and emo bands (and online perverts).


    Support local business but remember your wallet your choice. There, now we are back on track!:D

    I'm 40 years old and I have a myspace & a facebook page. :p

    When you get old like me - you do these things to find old friends and classmates that you haven't seen or heard from for years. Myspace & facebook is one of the best ways to do that.

    i'm just wondering where this is all coming from? Why would it matter to anyone but the person who bought the exhaust? I understand the support the local shops thing, but i would hate to pay for labor when i can do it myself. But thats just me.

    I'm sorry but I'm 30 and wouldn't be found on myspace if they gave out 50% off coupons for mushu hummers every other month (I'm just kidding, for that hell yea I would have a phat page). I meet people the old fashon way....at the bar:drunk:, and I see old high school buddies at reunions:rasta:, I still keep in touch with friends from college.

    BUUUUUTTTT whatever floats your boat buddy.

    you dang people keep draggin me off topic......

    Get the best deal, be it online or local. DIY for sure is usually the best deal!

    Good Job, gm3bow. You've done something constructive on this thread by actually posting the name of a shop that is reputable. If only evryone else follows your example.

    There's a reason you haven't heard from them in years and vice versa - they aren't really your friends and you don't really care about them. Just my opinion, and the reason why I haven't joined any sites like that. I have e-mail and messanger to talk to people that I actually want to talk to. The whole Facebook, Myspace thing seems like a popularity contest.
