    Anyone cut there exhaust piping before the axle to try and get a better look and tone from their system?

    i've thought about it. I think I may do it yet just to get the exhaust out of harms way offroad. I've already almost crushed my exhaust tip.

    lots to list, i will get back to this one..
    I have it cut with a turn down about 6 inches before the axle. It is very stealth and looks good. The only problem is the resonance you get under the bed around 2.7K RPM's. But since i am never cruising at that speed i dont mind it one bit. the tone is nice, although i would rather point my turndown more towards the passenger rear tire to direct noise out from under my truck. It definitly does protect the pipe from any off road damage. that is why i cut mine off there, my tip was bent off on a rock.

    Be careful.....

    In some states, it's not legal to cut the exhaust that short.

    I know here in PA - the exhaust has to exit past the body of the vehicle. They do this to prevent the exhaust fumes from penetrating upwards and into the cab/car. It's a safety thing.
