Tow Guard and Exhaust

2009 Chevy 2500HD Duramax. Decided I would try a tow guard again as I just bought a new fishing boat and tow two fifth wheels. Question for the great minds here is: The exhaust tip is pointed right at the passenger side flap. I believe they say you should cut away the rubber that's in the way, but that would be a significant piece (factory tip is 5" OD) and would somewhat defeat the stone catching ability of the flap. Looking for ideas/suggestions. Pure Diesel Power has a 14" right angle tip, but the length would extend past the flap. It can't be cut down as the area that mounts to the exhaust tip looks to be 5 1/8" OD and then it expands from there.

Buy a RockStar brand rock guard. They have a plate attached to the flap to solve the hot exhaust issue.

RockStar works for a gasser, not a diesel. This one has cutouts for a gasser also.

You are wrong! They make models specifically for the Duramax diesels. You better look again.

Not looking for models to buy as I already have one - as the op says, I am looking for solutions for the exhaust.
