    Looks very nice! If I were to get a 2WD, this is what I'd want it to look like. I think he should keep the molding, looks great as-is. :)

    Well I ran into a snag. I went to install a magnaflow stainless exhaust, with dual exit rear tips. I’m running into clearance issues. Anyone run this exhaust with a lowered truck?

    Is the exhaust touching on the axle? I had that problem. Had to have them cut off before the axle. Other than a muffler shop doing some creative bending, I can't think of anything other than dumping the exhaust by the cab.

    yeah I’m afraid I’m gonna have to go to an exhaust shop and get them to chop up my fancy stainless magnaflow exhaust.

    Yeah, it sucks. I had duals dumped over the rear axle, so you only heard it when you wanted to. No it sounds like a race car. Lol
