Shiny Exhaust tip?

I've been thinking about getting a cheap nice exhaust tip for my truck. WAIT I know what you're thinking, no I don't want one of those loud fart can tips like on a Civic. I just want something to replace the rusty tip that is stock.

I think you can get a tip that you just have to cut off the stock tip and then the new one clamps onto the end of the pipe where you cut the old one off. I would want something like that so I wouldn't have to weld anything.

BTW it's a 96 4banger.

The tip is going on a 2.5" pipe with the Gibson system.

Today I picked up a dual tip. Looks much better than before, definitely not the best it could look, but a whole lot better than what it did look like. But it looks good enough that I'm not going to worry about it again.

The tip is cheap stainless. And it wasn't much rust as it was all pitted up. I put the system on my turck the month I got it and I had to take the tips off last year cuz they looked nasty Won't be long and that galvenised pipe you got will be all rusted up and looking like crap. I'll post a pic of mine next week when I get a chance.

Again, I have the stainless system, and the pipe is stainless.
