Exhaust routing question

Guys, I have a 5" exhaust that dumps straight down just ahead of the rear diff. This is kinda cool and all but it really makes things loud in the truck! I'm thinking of re-routing it to come out just ahead of the rear wheel. My only concern is that my rear wheel may stay black all the time if I do... Anybody have this setup? I was thinking of getting an angled tip for it and hoping that if it were turned the right way that it wouldn't turn that back tire into a sootball.

If y'all have pics that would be even better!

Thanks!

How about just having the exhaust exit factory style like the kits MBRP sells for instance?

IMO that's the best look.

Can't do factory style unless I buy a chunk of 5" prebent from somewhere. Nobody around here seems to even bend 4"! I know where I can get some 5" pipe, and I can certainly weld it together if need be!

The reason the truck has a dump is because it used to have the factory routing, but the tubing was so big it rubbed against one of the rear shocks and destroyed it. I don't think the interior noise was considered before they lopped off the last few feet of pipe! I'm even considering removing the muffler just to see what that sounds like but DON'T want to do that while it's in the dump configuration.

Only sometimes. If you do a little 'preload' it'll smoke on takeoff, or sometimes if I decide to nail it to make a light it'll leave a cloud. What's funny is now that I have the DIY intake it RARELY smokes!

Martin and myself just ran a 4'' downpipe on mine, and he's currently running the downpipe plus a short section of exhaust for a trans install.

It's honestly not that bad, I dont know about +4 hour trip with it but it sure sounds cool. BUT.. if you think it's too loud now, it'll be a lot more without a muffler and closer to the cab.

I have a 4" downpipe on my truck and THAT'S it. That's got to be the loudest configuration in the cab besides a 6.0 or Cummins. At 1800+ RPMS and cruising all you can hear is a slight whistle.

Just put a turn down on the current exhaust and it will throw the smoke and the noise into the road.
