I would leave it as well.. You can't add more pipe so easily after you decide you hate it lol

unless you possess a welder, in which case I'd say to just go for it, cause worst case scenario you'll be out like an hour.

I would make it look nice under there first. Sand down the pipe and paint it black and clean up the axle and leaves and paint them as well. You would be amazed at the difference it will make.

No louder, very low key and no pics right now.

I bought the MBRP turndown kit, but I love it. No issues with soot under truck either.

That was my justification, less attention. Everybody calls my truck a sleeper too since no exhaust sticking out.

i took my tip and just as the pipe crests over the axle, checked where was best for tip placement. just under spare and made a mark cut and put the tip on. just get under there and see what you like.:thumb
