Home made exhaust.

I'm lucky enough to have a tractor trailer salvage yard about 10 miles from my house. I bought an MBRP down pipe, went to truck pro got a 3-4", and 4-5" couplers. And picked-up a 5" exhaust from the truck salvage yard, I'm going to make it exit right in front of the rear wheel.


Let me know what you think, looks a little rough, I've got to paint.

I did somthing similer last weekend. I cut my muffler off and welded the tail pipe to where the muffler was, comes out infront of the rear tire, but I need to extend the pipe about 12" so it comes to the outside of the truck

Annoying because it to loud? I'm sure I'll end up putting some kind of resonator on it eventually. I actually want to put a set of stacks on the truck, but that salvage yard rarely has a nice set of matching ones (they want $150 for a set) and I'm not willing to spend much more than that....
