    Hello,
    Well the state of maine is cracking down hard on exhaust systems and tires. So I need to install my tail pipes when I put my engine in this weeked or sometime real soon. So I was wondering if there was some way to hook my two stock tail pipes to my single 2 1/2" 40 series muffler? Or should I just say heck with it and run the truck to the exhaust place and have a tail pipe made.
    Thanks
    Adam

    You can install a Y-pipe if you want, but personally I'd go buy a second muffler, and take it to the exhaust shop. If they don't have a lot of work to do (quick bend around the t-case, then out the back on each side) it shouldn't cost much.

    On my 2wd I was able to make my own exhaust setup with some axle and manifold bends, but I am not even gonna try on the 4x4, lol

    get an older tailpipe..

    You can get a tailpipe for an older suburban for a single outlet muffler--many owners balked at spending a lot of cash on the Ghey dual tailpipe muffler and tailpipes they had factory in the later 80's models--I used to look up a system for an older suburban like a 79 or older and sell them the muffler and tailpipe for those years instead...(just had to be sure the inlet is the same size..)...the trucks did not change much from 73-87,so the pipes should fit no problem--you may need the older style hangers to go with it--or use universal ones.. :crazy:
