MBRP 4" Dual Exhust Rubbing Spare Tire

I just put on an MBRP 4" TB Exhaust and it looks and sounds incredible; however, both of the pipes (Duals) are about 1/2 inch from the spare tire and depending how they move can actually rub the tire. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it ok for the exhaust to rub the spare tire?

Clearance on Dual exhaust?

I don't mean to hi-jack your thread but I'm looking at buying duals and wondered if it would keep me from from adding on-board air (compressor and tank) later on. I don't have a good idea of how much room the duals take up beyond the original exhaust and I wonder if the duals would get in the way of mounting a compressor under the cab.

Thanks!

i would say no its not ok for your exhaust to be rubbing on the spare. trying moving it a little bit and make sure you dont get too close to your shocks. you can adjust it a little bit and make it fit better..or just ditch your spare and call it a day

I finally figured out what the problem was. The clamps that come with the exhaust did not keep the pipe from shifting causing it to hit the spare tire. I took it to an exhaust shop and the only way they could make it fit properly is to tack weld the problem connections (not all of them were inferior). It fits the way it should now and no spare tire rub. I thought this expensive MBRP system was suppose to be bolt on replacement using common hand tools, but apparently it isnít. Oh well, lessons learned.

I have to go out of town for a few days, but I will snap some pics next weekend and post them. It looks great and sounds even better than I imagined. It sounds like a Jet engine winding up until about 2100 RPM and then the Low Rumble takes over. In fact, I like the sound at WOT so much, I stopped caring about fuel mileage.
