It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. Nah, I know you want to be legal. That's why I love Michigan -- no holds barred!

Man in Louisiana they dont check for anything. If you go to get a brake tag and they ask you to do the usual horn and light test it is odd. I went get a brake tag on my old truck which had double limo tint on side and rear windows, a really low solid black visor, horn didnt work, and my exhaust was cut off under my truck right around the end of my transmission. I paid 10 dollars and they handed me the brake tag to put on myself.

My F350 had the exhaust exit right before the rear wheel. The truck lost it's muffler the day after I bought it with 6 miles on the odometer. I ran 4" mandrel bent tubing all the way back from the turbo to a 5" x 18" stainless tip - no cat, no muffler - pure diesel exhaust!!! Pushing over 400HP it smoked like a freight train under full throttle and my rear wheel stayed black. The noise rubbling under the cab was also extremely loud. But it was nice to smoke out a ricer too...

looks good, im probably gonna get a gibson cat back instead, its like the only system for my truck, without custom making one for $400 at a shop. Plus with the regular cab, there isnt much options anyways
