Exhaust tip questions

Hey guys just installed a mbrp 4 inch exhaust system on the truck.

So now it's time for a exhaust tip what size length to go with ?

Also does the tip size change sound and if so how does it 1 sound vs another

Thanks guys

well most people say dont go more then 2inches over the pipe size...so no bigger then 6inch tip.....i personally like the size of a 7inch tip......My truck is leveled on 35s and ive got an 7inch tip thats 18inches long...ive pushed it back pretty far, so you can see the pipe at all...and yes it did change the sound...had a 6x12 and it didnt really make a difference, but goin to an 18inch long change the sound quite a bit, i thought...

What kind of a noise change did it make ?

I want it to cover the exhaust pipe as well because of the lift and I'm going to put a black tip on it

here is a 7" tip. 15" long on 5" exhaust. For sure changed the sound of the truck- especially at idle. Deeper tone all around.

I just did the same thing - installed a MBRP 4" exhaust, I installed the 4" downturn tip, it's 12" long and came with a nice clamp on it with a hex bolt. I also had to loosen the clamp on the muffler/t-hanger clamp and rotate my exhaust upward because it was sitting a bit low. I even had to move my spare a little to allow room for the pipe to rotate up. Just a thought so it will be up tight to the lower edge of the bed.
I think the downturn tip sends a bit of sound right at the ground so it dampens the sound a little, and I would imagine the 4" to 6" tips would amplify the sound!
Enjoy!

I have a 6" dual wall on mine and love the look. But make sure you adjust your pipe so it doesn't hang so low, it looks bad in my opinion.

Kind of a bad pic but here's what mine looks like. And I didn't have to modify the hanger, I liked where it came out when I first put it on.
