Exclamation How do i get around this

I got all warm and fuzzy when i saw a 6'' chrome miter at Napa for 100 bucks Picked it up and came home intending to instal. This is the view from under the truck

The crossmemeber is right in the way of where the stack should come out. How do i get around this? Anyone have pics of single stack setups from underneath the truck?

You should be able to cut the hole without cutting into that crossmember

I had no pics of the underside so I just took these.

Nothing at all in the way. I'm not sure where exactly you are trying to come through.

Not the best pics, it's dark under there

I went around the frame rail so the cross member is not in the equation.

I dont want it off to the side that far, lookin for more of a centered look. Maybe i do have enough room to clear the cross memeber ill have to check when the trucks out of the shop (tranny) when i glanced at it i swore i didnt have enough room to clear my 5" pipe between the cross memeber and edge of bed
