8" tip!!!

I just got my factory exhaust straight piped . Sounds great, but I'm all stock so I can't see spending the money for a 4" turbo back. Does it really make that big a difference over the 3 1/2"? .
Anyway, short story long, I asked the guy if adding a tip would help the sound and all he could do was grin. He started walking to a rack and I was curious so I followed. We got there and he pulled out an 8" tip!!! I could fit my entire head in that thing! Might as well weld up a hot water heater.
I didn't get it because my truck is still at factory height and I don't want it dragging the ground. That thing was HUGE!

True, but there are better ways to be different than having something that reduces your offroad ability and also fuel mileage (bigass tips sticking you does you no favors).

At the end of the day, if they make you happy, more power to ya
