Re-Done, my exhaust

Lol.. everyones a redneck, so why not me?

Today at work we had nothing to do, so i finally was aloud to pull my truck in to redo my exhaust... all i have is cell phone pics, but it comes out the side now... pretty close to the trailer hitch and leaf spring.. infact one side needs some more tweek so it doesnt do it... but it looks good to me... thats all that matters




Oh, and i got rear ended in the taco bell drive through tonight... Thats why i leave the hitch in... Got hit... got my food and pulled up, got out and looked.. my hitch was still there... his grill... wasnt... OOPS

Looks great !!!!!

For what it's worth. I've been rear ended 5 times in various drive throughs. Never a scratch on the hitch, but never a grill left after they backed off me either.

It will hit thier hood... lol

I leave it in all the time, that way anytime someone hits me they will hit it... then even if there is no visable damage i will put it on a frame checker and make sure its not twisted at all... take the money from that, and be good...

Or just watch it puncture thier radiator / core support, and take out the grill / bumper / hood... and call it even :-)

It's gonna screw up their hood. This sounds kinda weird and twisted, but I kinda wanna get rear ended just so I can see how well my bumper holds up.

The best one was this past summer. I was sitting in McD's drive thru, pulled up a spot, then BAMM. I look in the mirror and see a Lexus on my ***. When I get out to look, this snotty-*** middle aged woman on her cell phone rolls out of the Lexus. She hit me hard enough the ball punctured her bumper (actually, it was a perfect hole..looked kinda cool). My truck didn't appear damaged, and she wanted me to pull forward so she could see the damage. Of course I refused and told her she would have to back off me (this wasn't my first rodeo, lol). When she backed up, she pulled the ENTIRE front end off that Lexus...bumper, grill, headlights, and part of some metal bracing across the front end. It was absolutely hilarious looking at the front end of this car hanging off my hitch, while she sat on the car and cried. Me and a buddy eventually got her front end off my hitch and placed it in her trunk...lol. As we walked past her, he told her to stay off the phone and pay attention next time. She just cried louder. I'd love to know how she explained that to her husband and insurance agent.
