    I had the same issue with my exhaust. I heated it up with a torch and put a small soft long dent in it. Still flows better than oem. And with the downpipe being a 3” anyway, no real loss.

    I did not have the trans crossmember issue, that shouldn’t be an issue as the trucks are all the same from that point forward. Mine are close, but do not hit.

    You guys have no idea how long i've been looking for a 4" lift...
    It's been right in front of me this whole time.
    I looked at that RC kit at least 20 times.

    Thank you for this feedback. I had read that multiple places but it may have been from k1500 owners who had this experience or early gen kits idk. At any rate thanks again. Will have to take this into consideration.

    Keep up the good work

    You got lucky then because even in the instructions they mention that some trucks may have interference.

    I considered flattening the pipe in a vice but then I still need my front cross over pipe modified because of the 6” lift so I will have them do it all at once.
