    Yesterday i decided to put a muffler on. I had bought it a couple years ago off ebay for my dad's car but he did not want to put it on. So i figured that i should just slap it on my truck redneck style. xD

    I took a sawzall and cut the old muffler off. Then i put the new one on and used a clamp to secure it, then i used bailing wire(lmao) to support the pipe and muffler. :D

    Surprisingly i think it sounds good! I will take a sound clip tomorrow.

    Here are some pics, do any of you think that i will have any problems with corrosion from the exhaust or the fumes leaking into the cab?

    My muffler's sitting about where yours is, but it has about a 5 inch pipe/elbow that spits out the exaust right before the axle. No problems.

    I don't think you'd have any cab issues. I'd be more worried about a manifold leak, as that is where your heater/ a/c vents from and pumps air into the cab.

    Haha

    Good thinking, time for some turn downs.
    Thanks!

    LOL, i guess i'll go add some more wire...

    Alright, ill have to clamp/weld some turn downs on the pipe.

    I just need to find some turn downs that will fit, should i just go to a muffler shop to buy some?

    You can take it to the muffler shop and get it welded on with a turn down? Well if you like the way it sounds that is. Where are those sound clips? :D

    Sorry it took so long. I thought about that but i'm trying to spend the least amount of money. So far i've spent none, just all stuff laying around.
    I'll get some drive bys tomorrow and some higher revving

    Alright did some drivebys tonight. I will hopefully soon have another camera and maybe it will have better sound, not that this cameras sound is bad or anything. Of course it sounds a lot better in person :D

    Enjoy!
