I'm sure its been discussed but I can't find it. What are the pro's/con's of just eliminating the rear muffler? Noise level? MPG's? HP?. THANKS! Hogman

Basically nothing. No noise, no mpg, no HP. If it does anything it's so insignificant you won't be able to notice a difference.

The muffler doesn't do a dang thing for these trucks.

lol, it saves about 65lbs of dead weight from your truck, but other than that, nothing.

65 lbs?? Dang thing is the size of a beer can. Well it a little bigger than that but it sure isn't 65 lbs.

Anyone else notice that the muffler is welded to the remaining exiting exhaust? From the tips to the FRONT of the muffler is all one unit. Thats annoying, as I didn't want to have to cut anything when I do a straight-thru or cat-back setup. Was going to leave the stock tips and paint them black.

A good HIGH jack should work, if not throw the local muffler shop a few bucks and put it on their lift. A little trick to make it easier is to cut off the vibration dampener so it's got a little more wiggle room.
