Need thoughts on my exhaust

I put the Diamond Eye 4" setup on my truck and have nothing but problems with the tailpipe section mainly. The hump pipe won't work because of my gooseneck and it has to be tilted ~45 deg to fit and won't stay tight, put in a straight piece over the axle and it gets rubbed by the diff causing the tailpipe to turn and drop and won't stay tight. I've tried locktite on the clamps, torque wrench the nuts, impacts, new nuts, etc and nothing wants to stay tight. My only thoughts are either put in elbows and make it dump in front of the tire or run a single 6" stack. Neither option thrills me because in front of the tire looks incomplete and the stack requires a diffrent toolbox, moving my antennas and I'm not sure about the look due to the shortbed. Any advice would be great or pics of CC short beds with stacks (my search turned up few). I'm wanting to put bigger tanks in so I'm thinking it's going to have to move anyways.
