Have to cut Flo Pro to fit CCLB?

I'm installing a 5" DPB FLO PRO with muffler on my CCLB F-350. Do I need to trim one of the pipes to fit? Seems like I do... I need like 6 or 8" to fill the spot between the muffler and the intermediate pipe...

Any help is Appreciated!!!

Measure twice cut once. You basically gave 2 measurements in one sentence so no real way to help there. Per the instructions for the same kit with Diamond Eye, you need to add an extra 5 inches to the pipe length for the slip joints.

I also was told this weekend that usually with the CCLB you do not have to cut anything, but not 100%.

I installed flo pro on my cclb too. One of the extra pieces it came with I had to cut a 10"-12" piece to connect the section that goes over the axle to the pipe coming off the muffler to get it to fit right. I'll take a pic tomorrow for ya

I have a Flo Pro 4" pipe on my CCLB, but mine doesn't have a muffler. I didn't have to cut anything, and had one fairly short piece left over.

If you do have to cut something, just make sure you don't F it up.

The 6 to 8" was just an estimate of the space I have between the muffler and the piece that goes over the axel. I am pretty sure I have to cut some pipe, looking at it there's no way the last piece will fit into the system whole.

Thanks for the picture in advance....

Yup- exactly what I ran into as well. If your putting a tip on it- wait to cut the end of the actual pipe off to fit the tip on there just right so it's not sticking out 12". I'll post the pic in the morning

Thanks Marshall, that's exactly what I had to do. Cut it down to 12" and it fit perfectly! Thanks for the help!

I installed a 5" Flo-Pro DP back, no muffler, and didn't have to cut anything. I actually had a piece left over. My truck is a CC long wheel base.
