Are you talking about the CAT. If this is what your talking about its not legal to take it off but then again neither is the DPF. But being that your from a smaller town in Texas like me you shouldnt have a problem getting it to pass inspection or cops bugging you. Hope that helps

I am guessing that you are referring to the muffler/resonator that is right before the rear axle. Taking that off is going to do absolutely nothing for you. No sound increase, nothing.

The first mod I did three years ago after my lift. Like stroker said. It looks like a muffler, but serves no purpose what so ever. It's like Ford said "Hey, everyone else has a muffler. We better put something on here even if it doesn't do anything."

Save your money for when you do a DPF/DOC delete with tuner and get a full straight piped exhaust.

No codes. It's a big tin can that does nothing.
