Recent 4" MBRP install ?

Well I put my new exhaust on last night and I was just wondering if anyone else has the issue that I do. It was kind of a tight fit in there and it sits against my rear shock and against part of the frame in the front. Does anyone else have this problem and is it something I should worry about? I dont think I can move it around anymore either, especially in the back because right now its against the shock and about 3/4" away from my spare tire...

My MBRP 4" system fit like $hit too...

I had to change the location of the factory hanger in the front, the "T" hanger in the back is jammed over to one side, I think their fixtures must be out-of-wack

When I first put mine on, it touched the trans dipstick, but after a bit of adjusting, it is about 1/8th inch away now. Also on large bumps and potholes, it will swing over and bump my rear shock.

A little disappointed in the fit, but for the price that I got it at, it can't be beat

Mine fit great when I first put it on with the muffler, but when I put the delete pipe on it is now sitting a little to far back, so when I clean my exhaust tip it moves the whole thing and the area between the shock and the fuel tank hits the fuel tank, sits like a 1/2-3/4 of an inch from the tank, I just got to slide the rear piece forward more.
