5" exhaust fit

I am getting ready to buy a 5" exhaust system (probably the farmboys budget kit) and was wondering if it fit with leaving the spare tire in place. Also, I have fox reservoir shocks in the rear so will it clear the shocks as well? Please help me out you guys that have tried it. Thanks.

I have plenty of clearance with my 5" setup. Start at the downpipe get everthing is place then start tightin down the clamps from downpipe back. I wrapped my pipe with header wrap next to the shock just incase.

Ya, i know the spare is pretty much useless to me now anyways. I am more worried about the clearance with the shocks but it sounds like it should be okay. Anybody have any experience with the install on the farmboys budget kit? Easy enough to do it yourself with no problem?

I've only heard of 1 or 2 people that have problem, but if you do just give him a call. I've done two diffrent truck in my driveway you should be ok.

Lay everything out on the ground in the order that it goes before you intall it. Double and tripple check before you cut. I ALMOST had a oops the first time around, but it easy.

I helped a buddy of mine install his 5" It was cake the only thing was that he has a short bed and the place he got his from only sold kits for long wheel bases. You just have to cut out 15" of the pipe out or so. Cleared the shock just fine, but on his truck it didn't look like the spare would fit (he doesn't have one so I wouldn't know )

It will fit with the spare it will just be tight. You can still use the spare tire in emergencies as long as you have an open differential such as the front.

I put in a 4" FBD kit and I like it. The directions were wrong if you follow them exactly so you are better off just sort of winging it. I had to take mine apart and cut more off of the rear section to get the "over the axle" part to not hit things.

I love the sound and the kit shipped with no damage due to great packaging.

I would leave the spare too if it fits and you don't have a full size spare. If you get a flat in the middle of no where you can play musical tires and get the spare on the front in at least get it to civilization in an emergency. It's not ideal, but it beats walking.

I still have my factory spare on 37's, although I might start working on a fullsize spare when I get my next set of tires.
