I would run further back then the down pipe... get the exhaust mocked up where u want it to come out with a 45* then just cut the exhaust where u want it. Just FYI, it will turn your wheels black and drone the cab with noise.

My 5 inch exhaust comes out under my rear crew cab door and I love the sound. It's not too loud but when you get on it is when it sounds really good

I know the psd sounds way different than a cummins but I had an 01 Cummins and I turned my 5" exhaust out right in front of the rear tire and the drone was HORRIBLE! It was worse drone than when I had a 6" single stack.... Just my .02

Having said that, what I did was ran the exhaust right back and put a 90 in the pipe to turn it out from under the truck.

I have the exhaust turned out on my truck. My wheel gets a little soot but not bad granted i dont have big sticks. I like the sound of it. It doesnt seem to drone to me at all but thats just my opinion. Mine five in straight pipe.

i have side exhaust on mine, no drone at all, super quiet inside the cab, only loud with the passanger side window down, and its single cab.


im running 5" with a 80 or 85* bend, to a 45* and 6" tip.

yes the rim does turn black pretty fast..

right now i have stock alloy wheels i much prefer a nice flat black wheel so turning my wheel black is a bonus for me. my buddy has a cummins and his truck drones terrible but in an obs PSD its not near as bad they are a completely different tone. i didnt know if i could just ran a 45 off the down pipe and be ok or if i need an odball angle. i dont want it to come straight out i want a nice angle and i'm even considering attempting duals this way.

Off the down pipe i used a 4 to 5 reducer and put about 2 feet of tubing then 45* and like a 1ft piece out the side mine isnt loud inside at all. I wouldnt 45 it off the dp because ur exhaust will come out under the cab. I mocked mine up like that and didnt like it

my downpipe is 3" but thats ok i get what your saying that is exactly what i was looking to find out. is yours a reg cab or an ext. cab? just want to be sure i have enough pipe.

I did it on my OBS and loved it...other then the sooting of the wheels. If you are going for a black wheel then I would say go for it. It sounds awesome!
