    Nice. You did the smart thing, and got them angled a little toward the back of the truck which is what I wish I would have done. My tips are just like yours, but at a 90* angle and the tips collect muds like a mother. If I run mud for awhile I have to get out and kick the dried mud on the tips so my engine can breath again. Good thing there isn't alot of mud in AZ.

    Thanks Mikey... I'm really thinking about taking the newrfbars off. Since I added the ORD body lift,they kinda hang lower.I want something alot closer to the body. They are Smittybuilt nerfbars. I always laugh at my GF cause she is 5'5" and she has to get a bit of a running start to hop in the Blazer /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I like the 3" pipe straight back....got a high flow cat? Did you have 3inch pipe all the way back on the old exhaust...if not is there much of a difference in your low end torque?

    Allright here's the story... The old exhaust which was done about 3 years ago was ok. After the manifolds it was 2.25" to the cat then after the cat it was 2.5". The muffler is a single in dual out Flowmaster (series 50 I think). The problem was that the hole cut for the crossover pipe was the size of a golf ball (see pics). Restricting the exhaust from the passenger side. I've been dealing with exhaust leaks for a couple of months now. So what they did was run 2.25" pipe from the stock manifolds to the high flow cat. The y-pipe (crossover pipe) is connected with a huge 3 inch collecter. After the cat is 2.5" pipe all the way back to the tips. As soon as I left the muffler shop and turned the corner I noticed a difference. More low toned sound,and A LOT more power. I couldn't believe it. It's like a brand new Blazer /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Well what do you consider wheelin? I stay off the rocks..mostly do mud (trails) . I agree if I catch a rock I'll rip it off. It's higher than it look's. The t-case is still lower than the cross over pipe.

    You should be O.K. with that crossover pipe. Mine is set up that way and I do rocks all the time. It has caught a few times but never enough so rip it off.
