Depends on were you live at. If i lived in a state that did emissions test i would just do a delete pipe. You could do a full exhaust and tuner and all but you would have to watch how you drive. Im sure as soon as a trooper seen smoke rolling you would get pulled over and get a BIG fine.

Go with the complete exhaust and be done with it. we find that most people who get just the deletes end up getting a DPF back kit after that to complete the system. I would get a 5" kit right off the bat and be done with it.

I did a 4inch Diamond Eye downpipe back and when I install it I will be happy.

I agree, do it now and be done with it. If you don't now you WILL later, guaranteed!

I am just nervous about driving across the country towing a 27ft enclosed trailer and being waved into weigh stations and stuff... I am NOT registered as commercial but still.... I think I might do the DPF gut route until after I move back east later this summer.. I bought a full used exhaust today, I picked it up for 150 bucks. So I will be able to save my low mileage dpf and cat for later if I need it.

I still have my factory DPF back exhaust (well, most of it anyway, I modifed it a little to clear the underbed gooseneck hitch ), and run just a delete pipe with a hollowed out DOC/DPF welded over it . I am very happy with it and have no desire for another exhaust. I too pull a large camper around and while the state my truck is registered in doesn't have smog/ emissions testing, that doesn't mean I won't ever be driving thru one of those hippie states and get stopped/ harrassed.

Keep in mind if you soot up the stock tail pipe you have to clean it to take it in for warranty. We had a 5" to 6" tip installed when we got the from dpf back so that's why I did the delete pipe. I really want the sound of the full 5" though
