5" straight pipe sounds awsome, that's what I have, but, the turbo whistle is really starting to get on my nerves. Both of my dad's trucks have 4" with a muffler and they don't sound too bad, quieter, but still can be loud if you want to. I have read where the 5" can be a tight squeeze, but I have a 45 gal. rear tank and it fits with that in there, it is tight, but if it can fit with that I don't see how you would have any issues. I didn't install my exhaust either, so I don't know how hard it is to make it fit, I did both exhaust systems on my dad's and they were a piece of cake.

no advantage to 5", just a deeper sound... and yes, they are a b***h to fit in and you have to remove your spare tire

EDIT.... may have to remove your spare..

My 5" rips... I love it. I have a 6" lift and a 33" spare tire underbed, and my 5" fits. Just barely, but it fits.
