Factory exhaust tip question

Maybe someone who works at Ford can answer me this. I plan on leaving my factory exhaust on the truck but I absolutely hate the tips sticking out the side. If I cut the exhaust off back a where it turns to the side to exit will Ford throw a fit. I would effectively only be removing about 6-12 inches of the factory exhaust.

This is purely for cosmetics by the way. I just hate ow it looks.

I like it :
I don't work at Ford BUT I would think it's another EPA mandated thing but for safety regarding the DPF regen since the exhaust gets so hot they try to get in ambient air before it leaves to tip so it doesn't burn off your leg hairs.

he is not removing the tip,,,, he wants to know if by removing 6 inches of pipe and having the exhaust exit farther under the bed, if Ford would have an issue................i would tell them it came from the factory like that if they even noticed in the first place...

Our crew trucks have utility beds/mud flaps that require shortening and moving of the stock exhaust tips. As long as the tip stays on im sure you'll be ok with the dealer

I say just scrap the whole thing and get tuned lol. I know your waiting until warranty is up, and i get that... Sorta. Work on these truck is definitely pricey, so warranty is sweet. BUT I just don't see how people can drive these things stock lol! Especially after knowing what they are capable of and feel like once they are stripped of that garbage from the factory and given some healthy tuning. I'm not bashing at all, I'm just sayin

I told my dealer I am doing a dpf back exhaust, and he said that is fine and he has no problem with it, just told me to be careful where I mount the tip, because the factory tip, the point of the little metal flanges is to bring colder air into the exhaust because during regen it gets so hot that it may damage the paint on the truck, hope this helps

Either way it voids his factory exhaust warranty. Its for cooling purposes
