    I dont think duals are made for the K5 from any company I know you can get a single.. Go to a good muffler shop. Not midas, etc. They can make duals just as cheap as a good catback and route them anyway you want. Go with 2.25 piping and your fav brand of mufflers.

    did you want true duals or from the converter back?? true duals no i dont think there is a kit. i had my duals custom made at a local shop. if you only want from the cat converter on back you should be able to find something for a kit..

    In an answer for the ? on a dual kit the answer is NO. A true dual kit will have 2 cats. You can do what I did on my 89 and get a Catco converter and a Flowmaster Force 2 cat back system for just over $300 from Summit Racing. 1-800-230-3030. It sounds good when you get on it and does not drive you nuts going down the highway with the windows up. It is easy to install and like I said it sounds good IMHO.

    You can get a true dual 2 1/4" kit from PAW. It is like $220. Otherwise if you don't mind the single cat setup you can get a flowmaster cat back system.

    Make sure it\'s legal

    Whatever you get make sure it meets your local polution standards. Some muffler shops can't do work that doesn't meet polution laws. Grr.

    Dynomax makes true dual kits for your truck for $100 or so. Just call Jeg's, add two of your favorite mufflers, and you're good to go, it's a straight bolt on. Ditch the cats if you can. Mine were gone before I got the truck, I added the dual exhaust kit and a set of headers. Sounds great and actually helps performance significantly, unlike a cat-back kit which IMO is a total waste of money unless you replace the cat, crossover, and all the exhaust tubing to a bigger, mandrel bent size. Good luck. I'd just put duals on it.
