Question 5 Inch Exhaust and a Goosneck?

My truck has the standard exhaust at the moment and I want to go bigger with the new chip and intake. I would like to use this 5" from Magnaflow Magnaflow Exhaust System Turbo-Back 5" SS tubing 16906

But my question is, will a 5 inch exhaust interfere with my hideaway gooseneck mount from BW B&W Custom Truck Beds, Inc., does anyone have experience with this?
I want to go with additional modifications, such as stage1 injectors in the future, so I would like to go with a bigger exhaust now so I wont have to upgrade yet a second time in the future.

a 4in exhaust will be all you need unless you just want a 5. you don't really need a 5in unless you are making a ton of power like 600+

I would like to have a 5" exhaust as long as it doesn't interfere with the goosneck hitch otherwise I'll go with a 4"

Just to be on the safe side I've decided to go with the 4" turbo back from magnaflow
Magnaflow Exhaust System Turbo-back 4" Pro Performance Series 17979
and at a third the price it leaves me some money for some other goodies like a new wastegate

forget the wastegate, unplug the red line to the canister on yours and block it off. Take the money for the wastegate and put it towards a multi position chip from tony wildman. takes that superchips and blows it out of the water! better on your trans too! OR- You could get gauges.

No I'm not a brandon but my brother hangs out on here somewhere. He isn't brandon either.
Isn't the waste gate fairly important though?
I have read about people unplugging it but can that lead to overpressure in the turbo?

I have an EGT gauge kit on the way with my new exhaust.

If you get a 5 inch, you can't stuff your 35" spare underneath (if you happen to have 35's...).
