Roush Thunderbolt Exhaust .Will ship. TEXAS

I have a Thunderbolt exhaust I removed from my truck. The exit is as pictured, but keep in mind I have a body lift. The reason I say as pic'd- I don't have the two s-bends or the exhaust tips that came with the kit:



Here is the kit. Nothing has been cut:




The price is $125 shipped, or $100 picked up. Price is firm as I have other Rangers I can put it on.

It installs on the factory hangers, except the drivers side pipe. The hanger bolts to a preexisting hole in the frame.

It fits extended cab 3 or 4 liter rangers. I'm not sure how far back they fit, but I know 2001+ is good.

crap this is tempting as Ive been wanting to put a dual exhaust on my truck for a couple of months now.
how low does it hang in the rear ? ( I cant really tell from the angle)
does that pipe need to be welded back on or is it a bolt/clamp setup ?

everything bolts up. nothing has been cut, nothing needs to be welded. There are a bunch of guys with the thunderbolt. I'll have to search for pics since it is off my truck now. It was just below the bumper before the body lift.

man, I can;t find any pics. They were a closeout back in 2005 and 2006. What few pics I found were red x's since they are so old. I did find this from bob:

Michael, I always had the hitch on the truck. I installed the exhaust before I had a body lift and didn't have any problems.

Josh, I thought it sounded good. Nothing like a weedwacker. I don;t have a sound clip.

A friend has that Roush set-up as he bought it around '05/'06 during close-out. His is a 2002 w/3.0L SuperCab 4WD. It's one of the better sounding 3.0Ls with that exhaust. It has a glass-pack deep tone rumble with some "crack" in it when it's throttled up.
