I've been pretty happy with my new exhaust but I think it hangs really low exiting truck. Anybody else has this problem and what are ya'lls opinion on muffler our delete kit? Also this is my first post on this forum so I'm still trying to learn it. Thanks in advance.

I'm assuming you mean Low at the Tip?
Because of the weight of that tip, it tries to "droop" down if you don't support it. Try loosing the T-clamp on the muffler (tip side) and rotating the tip Up and retighten...

Sure, I also felt it stuck out too far (figured they were trying to do some advertizing ;) ) so I shortened the tailpipe 6-8" before I put the tip on.

Every time I adjust my exhaust tip up it slowly falls back down over time. Could it be the factory hanger?

Well, didn't your system come with a new hanger? But, in either case, I don't think it's the hanger as much as the clamp. It's not gripping the connection at the muffler tight enough. I'd think you could always set it where you want to, make it tight, and then insert a small screw where the pipes overlap, through both of them to prevent it from turning again...

I had that problem when I first got my 4" MBRP. it still angles down a bit more than I would like (I like the tip to be tucked up nice with the bottom of the bed side)

I found that one of my exhaust hangers just up from the tip was hitting the heat shield piece for my spare tire (the hanger was too long and preventing me from being able to twist the tail pipe up far enough) I took a saws all and cut a few inches off the hanger so that I could twist the tip up and tighten the clamp

Can barely hear it from inside the cab but sounds good with the windows down. Took a about a month to break the exhaust in but now I can really hear the turbo wheel.
