Excuse me for the newbie style question. I am a recent (Nov. 2011) owner of a diesel. (my screen name comes from my 1994 1st Gen f150 Lightning...)

I've got a stock 2005 F350 CCSB. it's a lariet, it has what looks to be a factory exhaust. my question, was there any "option" on exhaust systems from the factory? how can i tell if this one is "stock"

I'm looking to upgrade to a 4" MPRB SS turbo back, and just want to make sure to retain the factory quality. i've heard "good" things about the MPRB product.

the truck is a daily drive and i take tons of road trips and use the truck to pull my lightning.

The stock piping is 3.5" has a gigantic muffler and a cat installed. The only option for the exhaust is it may have a chrome tip on it if the Chrome Package was optioned on the truck. As far as the MBRP exhausts go I have one and love it. It sounds great. There are three options as far as metal type: aluminized, T-409 and T-304. I went for the 409 as I don't care what the piping looks like since it's under the truck.

If it is stock you will not be able to miss the gigantic muffler just in front of the rear axle. I have an MBRP 5" TB and I love it. It is very deep (except when that'03 turbo whine is kicking) and it doesn't make that annoying popping sound when you have it WOT. I would recommend the 5".
