I was going to purchase the 5" MBRP turbo back exhaust. I've got airbags installed on the back. I'm wondering if the larger tail pipe is gonna obstruct the heat shield for the air bag? I glanced at it today and it looked pretty close.

I just looked at theirs a good 3/4" of space between the shield and exhaust. The plate can be bent a bit to make the new stuff fit. the truck is a 2009 3/4 ton. I noticed that the exhaust is also bend in from factory just behind the rear diff. With the 5", does the spare tire have to be removed?

Typically the rear can stay if you have a stock size spare. But I did just have a customer call yesterday and their spare didnt fit. We have dont many 5" here and the spare cleared fine also.

Where on the axle are your bags? The factory tail-pipe is 3.5" in diameter.

i thought the 5" were farther away on airbags? or is because this is an LMM??
