I mean horizontally. looking at the truck from the side, the exhaust comes out right after the tire, the distace between the exhaust tip and the tire (tread of the tire) and the side of the exhaust tip is less the 3 inches......

yea, i wish i could go. Im pretty sure we could figure it out. Ive gotten to know the diegrinder very well since i got the truck!

What kinda welder did you use? We've got a MIG welder at the cabin we can bring down.
