I swaped muffler from banks to an Aeroturbine muffler and had to get and adpater pipe to adapt the exhaust. The reason I did not weld them is because the back pipe of the exhaust is steel and the muffler is stainless.
On the other hand the u-bolts are as close to the bracket as you will get them (picture makes them look stick out) and they are centered (you can come up and check them i you would like). Have driven the truck almost 200 miles and checked the torque on the the u-bolts (no movement).
Traction bars are working awesome. No binding at all and I live in the coutry on gravel/ offroad road.
Last but not least, you should never loosen and retighten u-bolts, because you loose roughly 50% in clamping force at the same torque spec and stretch the bolt even farther, because these bolts are based on stretch not torque rating.
