help...need measurement from someone with 5" exhaust

looking for 5" exhaust for my 99 that will fit with my flatbed. I have a fifth wheel box that sits 4" below the top of the frame rails. when I put the flatbed on I had to modify the factory exhaust as it hit the fifth wheel box where it goes over the axle. was hoping if I picked the right one I wouldn't have to cut apart and weld back together a brand new stainless 5" exhaust system. has anyone seen one they think might work? basically it will need to stay as low as possible where it goes over the axle.

I can't help you any with measurments but if you need special bends at the axle, what about just making your own?

You can buy all the piping through summit racing and would probably have about $200 in just piping. They sell a 10 ft stick and have a few different bends. I don't think the pipe needs to be near as drastic over the axle as some have done. I made my own on my gasser and just kept it up high and went straight over the axle. then dropped it at a 45* and another to point it out the side.

Just a thought that I am considering myself.

good luck with whatever you do.

That is a good idea, however im not real fond of the 'aluminum wheel painted black with soot' look. Might be the best option though.

Actually you dont get much soot on the wheel. The only place I get black is on the leaf springs.

haha I beg to differ. Mine is dumped before the pass wheel. I am not even tuned yet and my wheel has a nice black haze on it. However it does look cool there and the wheels are easy enough to clean it doesnt bother me.

I'd say do a side exit!




The day I installed mine. I didn't really have a choice cause I have a full size 35" spare so I couldn't run my piping over the axle without rubbing.
