    how many of you have this done to your exhaust. i hate the look of the exhaust pipe going over the rear axle and twisting to the side. would rather have it just dump after the 2nd o2. pics would be great and hows the sound?

    I would do it after the axle just to keep the drone down on the freeway. Thats how mine is and I love it.

    i have mine dumped just past the rear axle and i'm a big fan. i still get a little bit of a drone on the highway but it's mainly because of the muffler i have. it keeps a very good tone though.

    i'll see if i can get a picture of mine.

    i dumped mine right after the muffler before the axle and dont here much if any drone. i have a dynomax super turbo so its not that loud anyway. i have had no problems and like it.
    depends on how loud the muffler is i guess?

    ive got turndowns before the axle and the drone on the freeway is a little much but i just turn up the music. definitely dump it after the axle. itll be just as loud outside but not as loud inside

    Here is a video of my truck. i had to cut the pipe right after the axle because of the shackle. the first part of the video is the stock muffler. last part in with a glasspack. dont recommended that. wish i didnt put it on.

    i cut the last 1-2' off the exhaust..Found a chrome tip and welded it onto the now cut pipe..It blows the exhaust away from the spare tire, and under the spring. I love it

    i picture of mine (kinda) but you can see where the rear diff. is. The chrome tip actually hangs below the rear axle, its not very loud on the freeway at all and keeps a nice tone
