    X3 for the exhaust falling off. Luckily I was in a parking lot I was like "damn someone's running straight pipes" yep it was me. Luckily had a socket set in the truck and put it back together. Taking it in to get it welded as soon as I can now.

    So far no loosening issues for me after about 1000 miles. Still loving the sound. I will probably have a friend weld my system up this summer though. Would really love to hear this system with a set of longtubes and hi flow cats

    Yeah @Wolff...definetly weld it up. Don't know why it seems to be a trend of loosening up. Kinda weird because my muffler guy had a hell of a time trying to get the pipe in...that's why I told him to screw to clamp deal and just hack it off and weld it up.

    Would also love to hear this system with headers...would be sweet to hear!

    I was thinking about losing the tailpipe and putting the tip on the exit of the muffler to see what it sounded like.

    I didn't quite go that far but I don't like the whole exhaust tip hanging out look, so I cut my pipe right AFTER the axle. Just right where it bends back down from going over the axle, just hacked it there. It's still tucked up in the truck higher than the spare tire. I was tempted to just do the turndown dump after the muffler but thought I'd just give this a try first and like it. Would love to hear your impressions @ANDR3W or @Rogue Racing compared to the regular exit. Is it any louder or different tone at all with the less pipe? I tend to think that mine got a little louder when I hacked some of it off, might be mostly in me head tho...

    Well that's why I was thinking about this because of the "echo" from underneath would bounce sound all over versus straight out to open air.

    Got a picture handy?

    Sure man @ANDR3W. Just ran to the garage and took a few pics for you. Hell, if it wasn't for your help and your sound clip, I probably wouldn't have this kick ass exhaust anyways. Here's the "best" of the few that I took. I used the stock tip cause why not, it was dirty anyways so I threw it on there.

    Here's another one that shows a little better how it lines up with the spare tire. I angled the tip to push the exhaust a little more away from the spare. Not sure if that helps anything, but thought it was worth a shot.
