    I have mine straight out the back. I can really smell it when the rear window is down, but not with the top off. the tailpipes are protected by the receiver hitch.

    Since you want to wheel it w/out snagging on your exhaust, run it up inside the frame rails and dump it right at the rear axle. Have the shop turn the exhaust dumps down and out so to speak. This will help keep exhaust from coming back in through the back of the tailgate and liftgate area. I didn't do that and I sure wish I had. I will be putting on a rear wind deflector to keep the exhaust from coming in the back of my '74.

    or if you wanna get fancy instead of a down and out dump you can cut and trim a hole in the rear quarter panel behind the tire and have it poke out there. Saw it on trucks and it looked pretty sweet.

    is it okay to run it straight out the back as long as it doesn't extend past the bumper?

    Only if you don't mind exhaust fumes coming in the back. If you have a wind deflector it won't be as bad, but if you don't you'll asphyxiate on the fumes /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Yeah, like shane said. You won't be able to drive with the rear window down...
