    Just curious ;) Im putting in a single in dual out magnaflow with rear exits and chrome rounded tips. For your vote, what is your reasoning? Looks? Simplicity? Function?

    I like them out the back.....but I went the cheapo route and bought the flowmaster kit and installed it myself (exits out the sides). That's fine with me.

    I haven't seen any kits that go out the back.

    EXIT OUT THE REAR. looks more streamline, and makes the car look faster. I also am looking at doing this to my Taco. Either way you go though its gonna look really nice. get some pics up of before and after!

    I would go sides...out the rear looks a little full size hot rod to me.

    I just wish the tips were a little bigger and angled down a bit more, but overall I like it.

    Thanks, I will most likely end up having it dumped after the rear axle though.

    yeah i say no exhaust, mine ends before the back axle, it looks way more clean with no exhaust showing, i would take pictures and put them up if my computer wasn't in for repairs

    I just got mine done and it exits right past the rear axle between the leafs and the spare... All stainless Magnaflow, with a stainless black chrome finish slash cut tip... It looks and sounds sick!
