no exaust routing is going to give you better performance unless you are talking lots of bent tubing to get to where you are going using a cheaper bender/crusher to get there. i guess you couls say there is a tad more backpressure with the more pipe you have, therefore being dumped, or having nothing after the muffler at all would be the most effective and tailpipes would be the least efficient. but it my mind pipes exiting from under the truck are in-efficient from the get go because they lowwer ground clearance

I don't like the dumped look at all especially not on a lifted truck I think it looks ok on a lowered truck with a roll pan but think even duals look better on that.

I used to be a big fan of the side exit before the rear wheels having duals one on each side but the straight out the rear duals have grown on me a lot. I think the side exit before the rear tires looks much better on Fords though. I really like all of them better than a dumped exhaust or single as long as they don't come straight down like some people have them around here.

Here is a picture of how mine is currently setup. I like it a lot also but not sure if I like it as much as the straight out the rear or not. I also don't like the tips with the rounded edges but some people seem to like them.

the muffler i use will be single in/out. with a y-pipe with two tips like yours hometheatreman. im just up in the air about in front or behind the tire. it might be too much in front cause of my body lift. im just confused. tom

Why not just use a single in dual out if you don't want to do true duals or do you already have the muffler?


I don't know if I think the exit in front of the rear wheels would look good on these Dodges or not. I like it on the 97-03 F-150's a lot but not sure I would like them on the Dodges.

Hometheaterman: I don't like the dumped look at all

What is the dumped look?
Mine are dumped and you can't see them unless you are in a low rider or bend down and look under the truck.

I used to have my exhaust setup identical to yours, and after I replaced the 3rd set of crushed/bent-to-shit tips, i got tired of it.

Nothing between my bumper and the ground now except air. :bigthumb:

I think maybe one of the reasons I don't like dupmed exhausts is most of the trucks I grew up around with them were old beat up pos farm trucks and I think even on a new truck it remimds me of those. I just think the tail pipes look better. If you do extreme wheeling they may not be a good idea but for the normal driver they should hold up fine.
