Exhaust exiting infront of rear wheel

Pretty much I want to do this because I am bored and have to much time on my hands hahaha. Won't be permanent just like a 6 month to a year thing untill I get a full exhaust. But I was wondering if anyone has done it on their Ex and if you have had problems with the exhaust entering the truck at all. Obviously if the rear door is open it will but that's not my point haha.

Well it not an EX, but even idling have had no probs But even though she won't say anything, I think the wife does not care for the louder sound especially near the "K" rails down the road or boucing off the big rigs

Wow that's a really sharp truck. My only concern is that on the excursion it will be pretty much directly under the rear door, so ideling might be a lil bit of an issue.

I would do it behind the wheel. My buddy has an ex with no cats and you still get that exhaust smell in the cab now and then. I can't imagine it in front of the wheels. Granted it is gas but they're fumes none the less.

in my own opinion i would not do it. Would get to much exhaust in the truck. i get some now with far rear windows cracked. That is with a full exhaust.

Does that seriously read an 18 inch tip? You mean to tell me your exhaust tip is a foot and a half in diameter?
