exhaust for 04 f450 cab and chassis dumptruck
ok so i was gonna get rid of muffler and cat on our 2004 f450 dumptruck. it has a regular cab with dump bed.
i was looking for exhaust but after putting the 4 inch down pipe on my 05, it looks harder on the 04. if i remember correct the tranny lines or something was in the way and looks tough to get up there. also i want to make sure it fits my truck
so i called my local exhaust shop and got a price on welding in a straight pipe for the cat and muffler. they priced me at like 220 for stainless steel which i thought was kinda steep just to weld in straight pipe.
so what is your opinions on what i should do, i just dont want to get the exhaust off and then cant get the 4 inch down pipe up there. what about 3.5" downpipe, fit any better. i would just do a cat test pipe and then cat back exhaust but that would be way more expensive. but i need stainless steel and does anyone have any info for me?
i can get pics of whatever or just what are your experiences with the 4 inch downpipe on an 03-04. my 05 was tight but i was able to manage it by myself.
