5 inch exhaust

Anyone got any pics of their 5" exhaust system? How was the fitment and what size is the downpipe? I know the 4" systems come with a 3.5" downpipe and was curious about the 5" systems. For some reason i'm thinking the 5" systems come with a 4" downpipe, but can't find any info for sure. I wanna get rid of the stack this spring and go with a rear exit exhaust. I like the 5" kits, but i don't wanna beat the firewell in if the 5" kits come with a 4" downpipe.

I don't have any pics of mine but I bought a 5in Magnaflow exhaust and it did come with a 4in down pipe. However the down pipe was a two piece design and went right in with no denting needed. Has been there for 60k miles so far. I know I have a stack but all i did was modify my exhaust for the stack. I highly recommend a magnaflow exhaust because the fitment of them is AWESOME and EVERYTHING was nice and tight to the body.

I believe the mbrp 5" kit comes with a 3.5" down pipe just like the 4" kit does.

Thanks for the info Nate. I'm really leaning towards the Magnaflow exhaust. If i go 5" i want a 7" tip...if i go 4"...i want a 6" tip. I think some pics will be able to help me make a decision.

Yea mine had a 6in tip. I really liked it. The tip wasn't too big and everything looked proportional. There was only about a 1/4in of clearance between the tip and the rear quarter pannel. I liked it.

Sounds great Nate....that's what i'm looking for. I've seen some MBRP systems and the tailpipe part was a few inches lower from the rear quarter panel. I like it close like you mentioned. Really wanna see some pics of both the Magnaflow 4" and 5" systems if anyone has some pics.

I got my MBRP in 2008 when I bought my truck and mine is 4" the entire way, including the down pipe. Without going outside and freezing my @$$ off and measuring it, I'd be willing to bet lunch and beer on it..lol

I have a MBRP 5" Turbo back and the down pipe is 3.5". It expands to 4" as soon as it's under the truck and 5" before the muffler. BTW The MBRP 5" exhaust sounds awesome and I've nothing but compliments on it.

I have a MBRP 5" full exhuast with a 4" 2 piece down pipe and a 8" tip exiting behind the wheel. I like it but am contemplating something different but haven't decided what I want to go with yet.
