Okay, I'm ordering my exhaust system here in a bit, but I'm getting caught up on one final detail. Platform.

My questions is this: Does it not matter if you have a crew cab, regular cab, super cab, dually, SRW, etc.? I can't seem to find a different part number for ANY exhaust system based on these different platforms.

I want to buy a 5" Turbo Back exhaust from MBRP and the only option says "All Cab/Bed." Is that right? :dunno: This exhaust better not look stupid. I'm gonna be pissed If I order it, and it looks retarded sticking WAY out there since I have a supercab shortbed. :doh:

The all come with the downpipe, piece to go between the downpipe and muffler with a little curve in it, a straight piece, and then the piece to go up and over the axle and out the back. That straight piece is just left out on the reg cab long beds and ext cab short bed models, and is put in for the crew cab long beds as it is. Any other configuration and you need to cut it to fit your truck.

Hope that makes since

They will fit all cab/bed configurations. If you have a cc/lb, you will use all of the pipes. If you have anything else, you will either leave a pipe out or possible have to cut a pipe. Installation is very straight forward and requires no welding, it is 100% bolt in.

Well... I understand the whole "100% bolt on" aspect, however I wasn't/didn't plan on the possibility of having to cut the pipe. I was going to install this myself, but if there's any other steps to do besides bolt-on stuff... then I'd feel more comfortable taking it to a shop, but I didn't want to have to do that. Oh well... no choice I guess. Thanks guys

Yeah, I can run a hack saw, but I'd still feel more comfortable with a shop doing it. Mainly because they're to blame if something goes wrong. :hehe: I'm not one for a steady hand (unless its shooting) so things like that, where the margin for error is really small... I'd prefer someone else doing it.

Awesome looking Harley btw!

i mean its pretty straight forward the instructions will say if u have this cab design cut the center peice 2 x lenght if ur fell comfortable installing it then you should have no issue cutting one piece of pipe at a certain length

Your cut doesn't have to be perfect looking. No one is gonna see it. Just make sure you measure "twice" before cutting. I have a 5 inch mbrp system on my truck and like it. It fit nice. I wasn't real crazy at first how it looked at the tail pipe but i put a 6 inch chrome tip on mine and shortened it some and i love it now.

Where exactly do you make the cut? Is it at the end where the tailpipe is? If so, then it won't matter anyway--because I'm planning on buying a 6" exhaust tip as well.

Your actual cut for making the pipe fit on your cab configuration right will be about where the cab and bed meet. Its not hard at all. Its really easy.

you can do it :)
try this
put the down pipe in & the piece that goes over the rear axle & then measure the distance between the two & cut the piece to the proper length then slide the rear piece back off & connect them up.



we all have faith in you

You've got an ext cab short bed right? You won't even need the pipe that everyone else has to cut.

I didn't in mine anyway. Its sitting in my basement.
