THere are a few pics in my garage, ill take a few more and post them up though as it now has a muffler in it. I used a Borla pro sportsman 4" SS muffler( $190 from summit), it still is loud but no where near as loud as it was without it!!!

you could probally go 5" after torsion bar crossmember, i have my muffler right befor it. Mine being a reg cab i dont have any room after the crossmember for the muffler if you have a CC you would probally have room to fit it after the crossmember!

You can't start with 5" until after the torsion bar crossmember, there isn't enough clearence.

No Prob, THe system consist of a MBRP front pipe cut just behind the tranny hanger, the borla 4" muffler, two 4"45's cut and welded to give it 5"s if drop IIRC, a 60* elbo and about 1.5' of pipe to get it out the side, Gibson tip optional!!!!!

I only get soot on my wheel and tip of the bumper, but again i dont drive around blowing smoke all the time either, If im feeling in a hot rod mood and blowing some smoke it will turn the wheel black in about 5 miles. Then again having a stick and lots of fuel i can really make er smoke more than any auto truck can!!!

This is exactly what we wanna do with our 3500 cc dually 4x4. Does anyone make a kit like that? Or would we have to buy a bunch of different components and built it in the shop.

If you take it to any decent exhaust shop, they should be able to do it for you, providing you don't want to go over 4". Most shops can't mandrel bend 5".
