The thing is its toooooo frigging quiet and the dual exhaust tip looks like some bad art , sooo can I straight pipe this one and put a different tip on it?

they sell dpf back exhausts, 4 or 5 in.. I heard the 5 in sounds pretty good, but won't get much of a sound difference to do the dpf and cat still on. I'm going to do a 5 inch MBRP dpf back exhaust in the spring

You will hear very little difference to none if you keep the DPF/cat on, remove them and straight pipe it then you will hear the difference.

The exhaust tip is actually part of a emissions control system, the reason for the flanges is to cool down the exhaust during regen so the exhaust isn't so hot when it comes out the pipe and doesn't damage the pain on the truck.. the metal flanges help suck in cold air, and so is that other flange looking thing right before the tip. You shouldn't have a problem, but I wouldn't just cut off the tip and leave it tipless

Nice.. I got a custom made exhaust tip for when I get my 5 in exhaust, its a 5 in to a 6 in tip, stainless steel and its 18 inches long, so it doesnt give it that cheap little tip look lol.. Take some pic, I'd like to see it
