    Well, if your Ranchos are like mine, don't worry about it. They have so little flex you may as well be riding on bricks =))

    Moer usefully, my truck came factory with dual exhaust, so I didn't have that problem. (Though getting the passenger side exhaust around my clocked '205 for the Doubler was a beeeyotch!) I donno what it's like up there, but down here in the east bay, I couldn't find a parts place to sell me pipe to do the work myself, so I (gasp! shame!) took it to a local place and had them do it.

    I did well, though; the guys didn't laugh at my goofy truck, put it up on a lift and had me point out where I wanted the pipe to go, etc etc.

    my driveshaft rubs the pipe at full droop. what i wanted to do was run dual exhaust with 2 cats but wasnt sure if that is legal or not...then i started checking out the price of that and it would cost too much. can i see some pics of the y-pipe on a truck that has about 6" of lift or more?

    Do a search. There was a thread about this less than a week ago. Go to a small independant exhaust shop. I dropped my t case after a lift and the ft shaft was dead center of the pipe. Took it to a shop and paid 40.00 to have the exhaust moved.

    It is most likely illegal for you to get duals anyways, since you're in Ca. You should be able to find a shop that will fix it for you.

    I never did understand why duel's are illegal in Ca. Would they still be illegal if they both had cat's ?

    yep it has to do with a law that says if a vehicle came from the factory with one catalytic converter it can only have one or if two same if three you get the picture it has to be the same number and the same location as it came with from the factory. It is actually a federal law but with Kalifornia's emmisions checks it became a state thing. I was looking at doing the same thing but decided it is not cost effective and it is just more **** to hang up on rocks.
