    I'm gonna take the truck in for a new exhaust and was wondering what you guys did and how did you like it. I found this picture of the UAV. I also remeber seeing pictures where people keep it inside the frame rails until after the rear spring hanger.

    Just like the UAV, I have cut off the rear dog legs and have the ORD shackle flip with stock springs.

    Thanks,

    The guy that did mine ran it like this to get around the shocks.He did this in the rear to keep it out of harms way.I just took it to him and told him I wanted it tucked up as far as he could and this is what I got /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Turn down tip in front of the axle. I have full flex, no interference and my exhaust is up inside the framerails, it turns down about a foot in front of the rear axle. My t-case skidplate even protects the flowmaster by preventing rocks from coming up to hit it /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
