5" Exhaust w/ Air Bags

Any of you deleted guys have any clearance issues running 5" exhaust with air bags? Was also curious if I could run dual exhaust with bags... Search didn't turn up much of anything. Any info would be appreciated.

I'm running 4" with air bags and have plenty of room left so I think 5" wouldn't be An issue for me. You should have some room for adjusting the exhaust at least a little. Good luck.

over the leaf or under the rail?

If anything I would think depending on your lift you may hit the leaf.

I've got the AirLift bags that mount under the frame rails. I think after looking at it 5 inch should fit- there is some sort of resonator on the stock pipe approx 5" in dia next to the bag now, and it clears it ok.

Do you lose the spare tire going with duals? Doesn't look like there is much room with the spare in there- if I have to lose the spare I might try something like this- please forgive me for the Dodge pic but the exhaust is what I'd like to do if I can't keep the spare tire.

Hey Ryan2012F350. Exactly which exhaust from Flo-pro do you have? I have a 4.5" pintop kit and the only reason I don't have carli bags is because they told me it would not work with a 5" exhaust. Any more info on your setup? I really want the carli bags but am afraid they wont fit.
Thanks

Same as you man, Carli Pintop 4.5" Lift, Flo-pro Aluminized 5" no muffler, fits great, doesn't even come close to being an issue with the Carli Bags.

Get the bags... you'll never look back.

Are you guys seeing any heat issues with the rubber on the bags? I have a 5" down pipe back Flo-Pro. Getting Firestone bags installed and was warned about heat issues with the exhaust in such close proximity to the bags (i.e. Melting the rubber). 2011 CCSB F250. Anybody seeing this?

I have the firestone airbags with a 5" flo pro with just a 5" rear block for a lift in the rear. No issues with heat since the firestone kit comes with a heat shield to shield it from the heat. You will be good to go!
