    It's also a good idea to check the spacing between the O2 bung and the surrounding area (frame, heatshields etc). I had the SW downpipes for a bit. I bought the Vibrant J style extenders because they had the best reviews. Problem is they wouldn't fit. There was no room to attach them and the O2 sensors as well.

    Nick,

    Do you know if the SPD downpipes sit higher, lower, or at the identical spot when compared to stock downpipes?

    I was running the cobb DPs, but on my last trip, it became real clear, real fast that they hang too low and that there isnt enough DP to skid clearance where the DS pipe crosses over to meet the passenger side.

    I used the skidplate on soft sand at speed. aluminum skid flexed about 1/4", impacted the DP, then the studs got ripped out of the turbo. Trying to figure out if any of the aftermarket DPs will provide clearance, or if I need to make my own.

    thanks!

    I have to admit, this is the first time we’ve come across the issue. I’ll do some research on this and report back my findings.

    I chatted with Jacob at spd. I'm going to try them out to see how they fit. I'll take pics of the clearance once I get them on the truck.

    Anyone have issues with clearance on the crossmember right where the SPD downpipes meet the exhaust?

    I installed them on my 19’ a few weeks ago with no clearance issues. Only issue I have is exhaust leaks at all of their clamps. Made sure to not over tighten them and they leaked. Tightened them up and they leaked. Loosened and rotated the clamp and they still leaked. Thinking about getting them welded.

    Hmmm not noticing any exhaust leaks with the clamps but I've probably over tightened them trying to keep my exhaust from resting on that cross member Haha
