    I had my local muffler shop build me a very nice exhaust system. I had them route the passenger side pipe between the front of the transmission and just under the torque converter inspection cover. It Y's into the driver side pipe just behind the transfer cross member with a collector there so I can drop only the front half of the exhaust if needed. The Y pipe is 2 1/2" then after the Y it becomes 3" and exits out the driver side behind the tire. I am using a HI-FLO cat and a gibson truck muffler. It has a very nice tone.

    Nice, I've thought of doing that on mine when the x-under tube gets smashed (or when I get to it, whichever happens first). My only concern was the fuel lines. Any problems or concerns with yours being that close?

    No prob with the fuel lines. I did install a shield as an after thought just to make sure.
