i was thinking about getting a magnaflow muffler, but what size of inlet/outlet and muffler dimensions?

What do you guys think about hollowing out the cats?

what is this air box mod that you speak of?

There just isn't enough room with the exhaust. Does anyone have any pictures of their exhaust coming out of the sides? I really like the duals but I need a hitch to haul the quad. I can't fit it in the back of the flareside without taking the wheels off lol. slight miscalculation when i bought it. Thanks guys.
If you haven't already done so, check out Hidden Hitch, as the only part that sticks out below the bumper is the 2" receiver. You might not have to mess with you exhaust at all.

Ok....hitch is on!! WOOOOOOOOOOO! I'll post some pictures when I get home. He ran the exhaust out the sides at a 45 degree angle....I think it looks alot better. I was afraid I wasnt going to like it but its really sharp. Its a tube style class III hitch and is hidden really well. For all I'm going to be using it for, it'll be more then enough.

My only issue with the whole thing, is the 45 degree bend in the pipe is right next to the back lower corner of the hitch.....and its hurting for clearance. When its cold, it seems ok, but after getting off the highway and stopping, it tends to bounce of the back corner of the hitch and makes the most annoying rattle. Again, I'll get pictures when I get home. There isn't much play in the hangers, so moving them outwards to correct the problem isn't really an option. The only thing I could think of was to try and shave off a little of that corner of the hitch to see if I could get enough clearance.

Damn rattle lol ....other then that, it looks great. I know I know.....pictures would help....
