I have them, and honestly haven't heard a better sounding exhaust, the duals just give it a deeper, meaner sound in my opinion, the double sided smoke factor is definately cool also. Ask them if they make it in the 304 stainless with the polished tips as well, worth the extra cash also, no rust ever, and polishes up real nice.

The bad,

1)the pipes are so big that they are about 1/4 inch away from your shocks and will bounce off them, and make noise (clangity clang)in a off road situation.

2)the pipes are so big, if you tow heavy, and don't have airbags to help sag, especially if you go over a hump or something on the road, your leaf springs will rub against them as well. Just have to grind a bit off the leaf spring corner, not a real big deal either.

All in all, it's an awesome system, great quality, and the first thing mentioned above, I am working on rectifying, for my truck, maybe if you get them we can all get together and come up with some ideas. maybe some heat wrap around the shock, there's no way not to make it hit, at least kill the clangity clank. lol

Hope this helps

Hoss

I have Silverline duals with cat removed and love them. Nice deep sound. Pretty much same as MBRP. I have no problems with the pipes hitting anything.

I have the cat delete section.

Hey hotdog, I don't see how you can have 4 inch pipes back there, and not have them close to anything, there's hardly no room for a 4 inch pipe to go through there, I don't know how the heck someone sticks 5 inchers back there. LOL Also I want to clarify, that they only hit the shocks in a "offroad sitituation" they hit all the time.

diamond Eye is another one to look at for duals. I mean as long as the exhaust is mandrale(SP?) bent i really see no differance in what brand you choose. Also i dont know where you have been looking to buy from but Diesel performance accessories for Dodge Cummins, Ford Powerstroke, and Chevy Duramax is the cheapest i have been able to find exhaust anywhere. I know this is kinda out of the thread but if anyone else knows a cheaper place if they could PM me that would be awesome or if anyone is looking to get ride of one of there dual systems.
