Exhaust before rear tire pics and opinions

I want to do a custom 4" exhaust with 3"Dp and aero turbine 4040 muffler and gutted cat. Looking for some pics of exhaust exit before the rear tire to see if I want to go that route or not. If anybody has done it before any issues with heat to the tire or extra dirty rims?

Mine doesn't really roal coal to much so it doesn't really worry me. Maybe if that bed and rims get dirty all the time it'll make me want to wash the rest of it to. I'm more concerned about extra heat on the tire especially with high egts towing.

I wouldn't think it would be too bad temp wise considering there's a decent amount of guys that run this set up.

I know a lot of guys run it but if I get out of my truck to check the load and walk around the pass side it feels insanely hot. I couldn't keep a leg there for more than a second.

i would only run it out behind the tire or run stacks. If your worried about the restriction cause of the bends over the axle all i can tell you is that if you run 4'' or great it wont matter much for a daily driver

I had a 3"dp 4" back no cat or muffler dumped in front of the rear on my 97. Since it had the stock injectors "rolling coal" was not possible so the wheel stayed pretty clean. Heat was not an issue. BUT, it was LOUD!!

No, I don't have a video, but it was as loud, or louder, than a straight piped 03 6.0.
