Exhaust placement?

Anyone ever set up there exhaust in front of their rear tires... kind of like on Lightnings and side exhaust on cars. I think it would look pretty good with a 6" tip on each side of my rig, anyone have any experience with this or even better, some pictures!
Thanks guys

the biggest issue with it on both sides is designing your system to get to the other side. its easy on a gas motor cause there is exhaust leaving the motor on both sides. with your truck, you have a great big pipe you need to make clear the trans, tcase, and driveline without heating anything up. be very carefull on the driveline as exhaust can casue u joint and slip yokes to fail prematurely. these are little things you dont normally think about. also, you dont want to heat up the t case or any seals in that are either.....just thought i would throw some things to think about out there for ya, but i do think it would look cool........Marc

I just installed 4 inch on mine but could only put it out the passenger side because of the fuel tank the pipe would have been too close to the tank for a safe setup. had to get it done at the local muff shop though dont know of any manufactured kits

I wouldn't recomend putting it in front of the tires as the black soot would discolor your rims. If you look in my garage you can see what 6 inch tips look like behind each tire though. You gotta remember that it was my first exhaust that I ever put on, so it looks a little tilted which it is. But you get the picture.
