Exhaust metal

Anyone know what type of metal, the original exhaust is made out of on my truck? Aluminum or steel?

Either aluminized steel or stainless. If a magnet sticks, it's aluminized steel. If not, it's stainless steel. No such thing as aluminum exhaust. OEM's tend to use stainless so that the pipes will hold up to salt.

Magnets will stick to some forms of stainless but not sure which ones. I only know that because I put aftermarket exhaust on my buddies truck and a magnet just happened to stick to it which made me curious.
