    Look good - I actually just saw those on a late-model chevy a week ago.
    My only problem with chromed tips (I have 3.5" rounds) is that mine are rusting and looking like poo. They looked good for a while, but now they're spotted with rust and look dirty all the time. If I got to do it all over again - I would've saved the money and just run the pipes straight out the back without any poser chrome tips. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Sorry if I bummed you out about getting 'em, but it's your cash, so go for it....or you could always pocket the $40, run the pipes straight out the back, and sent $25 to CK5. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    well, i know how they can get...my dad has chrome tips on his car but if you keep after them and polish them once and a while they stay good. and im not going to buy these exact ones anyhow..these were just for reference. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    and on a side note..it seems a lot of posts i make always seem to get replys refering to joining. maybe its just me but it seems like theres a little pressure to join here.. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    might wanna rethink the straight out the back thing...mine were like that when I first got my K5, and when you ride with the back glass down, it sucks exhaust fumes in (even with the front windows down)

    Had mine rerouted so they exit at 45 degree angles out the back (one right under each corner of the bumper) - helped out ALOT. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif (you can see the end of one in the picture, if you look close)

    As much as I like those tips, I would also rethink the rear exit. This would be OK if you don't wheel your truck. I had mine routed out the back, and i kept tearing them off when I wheeled. side exit was better.

    I aggree about the rear exit. They look good coming out of the rear on a truck but I can't count how many times I've drug my bumper and CL-III hitch on the ground wheeling. It'd be a shame to smash those purdy tips.

    The only problem with side exit pipes is they catch all the mucky stuff, if you play in the mud a lot.

    I agree I see all these big lifted trucks with chrome tips coming out from under the rear bumper. What happens when your rear tires come off a ledge or something and your pretty tips get caught betwwen the earth and your bumper??? Oh well just my $.02

    if its a mall cruiser or show truck it'd be pretty cool, i mean, i think they look cool. for a trail rig though its only a matter of time before a rock/stump/whatever smashes one of them. my current exhaust system is pretty much expendable... rock hits it its kind of an "oh well, cut off the mangled part and lets keep wheelin'"... if I had those really nice chevy ones I'd be pist every time they got banged up. lol! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
