Icon5 Gibson Exhausts Question

Does anybody know if you install the gibson si/do exaust kit

(
Amazon Amazon
)

if you can keep the spare underneath or if I have to remove it, and if you have to remove it what are some cool mods any of you have done to mount the spare elsewhere.

The pipes go to the sides of the spare and between the shackles for the leaf springs. No problems fitting on most cat back systems. The only time you can run into problems is putting something bigger than 2.5" pipes out the back b/c there is not enough room for pipes and spare tire. However that Gibson Exhaust that you have posted has 1.75" tailpipes which are tad small, but would easily fit. I would try to go with at least 2.25 for a better sound. I have 2.5" pipe all the way from the cats to the muffler then out the back and I love the sound and volume it gives off.

i had the same kit, no issues with the spare tire.

pipe size is fine, mine sounded awesome. you have two pipes so no worries on too much backpressure.

i'll post some pics of mine later.
