Dual exhaust question...

I have a gooseneck hitch in the bed and I am interested in MBRP's dual exhaust system. I just looked on XDP's site and it says it's not decided for trucks with in-bed hitches. Has anyone with a GN got this system or made it work somehow? May seem like a stupid question, but this is pretty much the only exhaust i'm interested in.

Forgot to add, from looking under the truck, I don't see what the issue is, my GN is pretty much flush with the bed. Guess i'll give MBRP tomorrow!

What kind of Gooseneck hitch is it? Depending on the mount you should be able to run dual, but like you said give MBRP a call, ask them the deal. Any reason why your going dual over single exit? just wondering...not bashing.

I had a gooseneck hitch on my 00 and the dual exhaust fit fine. Mine bolted sat on top of the frame and bolted to the sides. It wasnt even close to the exhaust. I did have to take the spare tire out though.

The GN is a Draw-tite. I figured if I was going to do exhaust that wasn't stock i'd run duals. I like the look of duals, no reason other than wanting to really.

There is a plate that sticks up about 3/8" in my bed for the GN. I looked under the bed and it's pretty much flush with the bottom of the bed. The spare tire is already gone from under my truck so that's not an issue.

Thanks for the reply guys, I appreciate it!

Tom,

I know you ended up going a different route anyway. However, the reason that they don't work is due to the frame hardware on an in-bed hitch. The second tailpipe can sometimes come in contact with frame work under the bed. There's been times that it fits unloaded and then when the additional weight is applied there's clearance issues.

I just spoke with MBRP about this on Friday so the issue is fresh in my mind. There is some applications that you MAY be able to run a dual with an in-bed hitch. However, from MBRP's point of view they need to make a blanket statement and say it doesn't work for any of them because in reality, it won't fit 8 times out of 10. Secondly, because the truck has a single outlet off the turbo you'll find that duals really do more for looks than anything else. Hope that sheds some light on the issue.

That's what I figured. It's a shame because I like the look of duals but i'm happy with a single 4" exhaust! Highly recommend XDP for exhausts, thanks for the sweet discount!
