1. Floor Jack and a piece of wood?
2. Cut and section a piece of the vertical and re-weld to raise it?
3. Sit and drink enough beer so it looks better?

You may have to go to a cutom muffler shop where they can build one for you. If you are handy with a welder and have pipe cutters etc etc you can do it yourself. Most people don't have the tools available to do all the bends and or cuts you may need. I would just go get an estimate from an exhause place. good luck!!

there is a little adjustment like 1/2" in the bracket that is used to lower the tailpipe. but to get it back to where is looks good you need to put the stock bracket back on and do an aftermarket exhaust 4" or 5" as it does not bend as high as the factory one going over the axle.

Over a couple beers we have a plan. It involves a sawzall and a Mig... but it will do.

Cheers!

You can always tell a 6.4 with a B&W hitch installed just by pics of the rear end. That low exhaust pipe is driving me nuts too. Love the hitch but I want to do something to mine as well. Thought about jacking it up, but worried that I would push the extensions through the pipe. If you have a solution, take pics while you do it and post..thanks

This is what I am going to do this summer.

Mine on the 6.0 isn't as bad as his with the 6.4. I will probably go aftermarket exhaust however he wants to keep his factory looking stuff. I think we figured out a pretty easy way to do it. Whenever we get around to doing it we will take pics and post it up.
