Pcitures of stock exhaust?

Hi,

I just bought a 2003 F-350 CC DRW 4x4 6.0L and the last part of the exhaust is missing. I have no clue if the previous owner played around with the exhaust and so I'm looking for pictures of the stock exhaust installed.
I know it's difficult to use one hand to lift the truck and the other to take a picture of the underside, but maybe someone has anything.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks very much, southend!

May I ask for one more from the muffler to the tail pipe? It seems I'm not only missing the tail pipe, but the muffler, too

Thanks man! I owe you a beer. I know it's difficult to fulfill that promise, since I live in Germany, but I'll find a way

So, thanks to southend I know what's missing - pretty much everything, only a 20" piece of pipe after the stock cat is left. No issue for the German authorities obviously, because the car passed the vehicle/emissions inspection without all the stuff...
btw: the system in Germany is very different from the US, we have a mandatory vehicle & emissions inspection every two years and you can only make modifications to your rig which are allowed by the European laws. Very few... My truck pretty much came with a book of exceptions to these laws

Anyway, the issue now is that a decent cat back exhaust system in the US is about $500. Shipping to Germany is almost the same amount! Plus tax and customers and you end up paying $1500 for a $500 exhaust

I was wondering if anyone knows a service in the US that does international (vessel) shipping at a more reasonable rate? Usually I would ask some of my friends in San Diego to hand carry parts, but a complete exhaust might worry the airline staff

Find an exhaust off an old Panzer V and see if you can make it fit. .

Actually are there any custom shops in Germany that work on the big trucks? Scania trucks maybe? Surely there has to be something in Germany that is close and can be fabbed up or modified a little. Metric to US measurements can be fixed with a good welding shop.

Panzer V are quite rare... Tried the one from a Leopard 2, world's best tank, but the exhaust is so big, I could park the F-350 in there

No, seriously: I did exactly what you proposed. Found an aftermarket muffler from a European truck with a 3.5" pipe, a piece of 3.5" pipe extra and welded it all together - I learned decades ago how to weld.

Thanks anyway, will post pics soon.

What's is like owning something like that in Germany? Do you have to special order filters and everything? Are there more than I'd guess? Seems like it'd be a very rare truck anywhere in Europe. I'd have thought the emission laws would be more strict as to not allow the import. Although I know ford offered the 6.0 and 6.4 in total non emission versions (no egr, no dpf) at least in Saudi Arabia and other middle east oil field countries.
