5" exhaust on a 2wd?

I'm looking at getting a 2wd OBS soon tthat is completely stock. I'm probably going to be ordering an exhaust kit the day I bring it home. I've saw 5" kits for OBS trucks and my question is, how well do they clear over the axle area? I'm not concerned about the spare tire. Ill remove it if I have to. But I may install a bronco tank later down the road... thanks.

I have a 45 gal. rear tank with 5", I think you will be fine. It is exteremely tight, but it does fit. 4" would work, but come on, you can't beat the sound of 5".

^Agreed. The 5" sounds WAY better than the 4".

It is a TransferFlow tank and is 45 gal., lol, not much else to it really. Here is a pic of it and the exhaust. It is pretty big! I really don't like it though and I am switching it out to a plastic stock sized tank when money allows. It reads weird when it starts to get low, it always shows waaaay full until you hit the brakes and you realize there is only about a 1/4 tank left. I know it can be fixed with the sending unit, but I just don't like the idea of steel tanks and I have no need for it. As of last night I have only put 668 miles on my truck since spring, so I don't burn that much fuel.



And a pic of the decal on it.



And another.

It would be nice to have if I used my truck, but I don't. I figure I could get almost 1000 mi. before filling up if I was driving down the highway, figuring 20 mpg.
