Where to find 3.5" exhaust tubing in SE michigan

I recently purchased a 95 F250 PSTD and I'm looking to remove my cat and muffler and replace it with a piece of 3.5" exhaust tubing. I'm having trouble coming across an auto parts store that carries anything larger than 3". I assume I could buy a hunk from a muffler shop, but does anyone know where i could find some otherwise? I'm in southeast michigan in the Romeo/Washington twp area. Any input is appreciated...

Save your money and throw a 3" DP to 4" pipe on when you can. You're probably looking at around at least $120 for a cat delete and muffler delete, as opposed to $450 for an entire system.

thats the plan in the future, just looking to get some nice sound until i can afford to do it up nicely with a tip and all that.

Thanks to everyone else for the responses, I will try NAPA.

If you're handy with a welder it possible to scrap the muffler by cutting it out and changing the exit point of the exhaust from after the rear wheel to before without using a delete pipe....but i've always been a fan of dumping exhaust in front of the wheel.

no it's a flange that bolts to your cat. If you're deleting cat and muffler you're better off just buying a down pipe for $90 shipped and then getting adapters off that... then the down pipe is done when you want to do the rest of your exhaust

go to an electrial supply house and buy some 3" EMT.... its an exact match to 3.5" exhaust tubbing. i knoe it redneck but it works. hahaha thats what i did to straight pipe it b4 i got the exhaust. worked great. it is not aluminized tho, so it will need to be painted
