Will 5" exhaust fit?

I have a B & W hitch on my truck. My stock exhaust looks horrible hanging down and is getting bent up to boot. Will 5" clear and still not dangle down so low? I have been told they don't go so high over axle so it should but can't get a definate answer. If you have this setup whos kit are you using? Thanks Jason

Thanks I want to get my exhaust purchased as soon as the tax refund gets here. I really want 5" but don't want to have to pay return shipping because it wont fit right.

I dont know why the bend in the stock exhaust is so high, with my b&w on my truck going through ditches and rough terrain my exhaust has never hit the axle or my hitch.

I just installed a 5" flow pro on my truck with no problems except the clamps that come with it. They are garbage and I stripped the threads on every one. I think they are meant for one time install, which doesn't work so well if you gotta put the stock exhaust back on. I highly recommend you go to a truck shop like for 18 wheelers and get yourself some of band clamps. The ones I got are SS, have 2 bolts, and have a lip in the middle to to clamp down on both sides of the joint nicely. You'll also need a 4" clamp for where the delete pipe connects.
