Exhuast dump in front of tire?
« on: February 15, 2010, 07:53:15 PM »
Anyone ever had their exhaust dump right in front of their back tires? I have a 81 stepside but any pics fleetside or stepside is cool. Thanks

I have.
The Blue stepsides are at a 45 degree angle, sounds great with Flowmasters.
The red stepsides are at a 90 degree angle, you can hear the Cherrybombs "bounce" off of cars or buildings as you drive by. It's pretty annoying, kind of like the bed on this truck

The Blue truck has flowmaster 40 series on it.
As far as the cats, well, ah, see, it is against the law to remove pollution control devices on a vehicle to be driven on public roads. I think I put the cats back on it, I will check and get back to you.

seems those kinda parts get misplaced or lost in a rebuild sometimes.

If I happen to buy a vehicle new enough to have cats on it, they get thrown in the trash regardless. Not legal?...Whatever. : )
