Finally got around to this. Want your opinion on exhaust also.

So I have finally gotten a hitch receiver and I'm going to put it on tomorrow. The problem im having is the dual pipes I have are to narrow so they are going to have to change. Any suggestion on how to do them this time around? I don't think I can just widen them because then they would get in the way of the leaf springs. Soooooo I was thinking maybe have them dump out before the rear wheel? Idk... Post a pic if you have duals of some sort with a receiver also. Thanks!
Pics of lifted bumper(finally) and the receiver.

I don't like duals (anymore) so I would dump just one above the rear axle. Unless you have true duals.

Na, they are cat backs. I would dump but the tips add a nice tone to the exhaust that I would like to keep but I fear I don't really have a choice anymore :(

45 them, easiest to do and clean look, although not as clean as dumped but still looks good.

Personally im a fan of duals out the back. I would see if you could re-route the pipes from the muffler to make them wider.

Duals out the back are gay on trucks. Leave that exit for muscle cars. Get them 45'd

No problem with the leaf springs. bring them out more then straight out back. 45s are gay on trucks, duals out back just usually sucks because everyone keeps them too close. straight out the back, and WIDE apart.







****.

you'll be fine if you just push them out to the side of the hitch. mine are set that way but my hitch tucks way up under the truck and doesn't hang out like that ^

Do it this way, only way to do it if you run duals I think.

Yeah I'm not a big fan of 45s... I would like to keep it as close to what it is now. If its not an option (which it seems like it is so far) I want to dump out infront of the tire. Anyone have pics of dumpage infront of the tire?

i have personal experience with two ranger with duals out the back and hitches. both trucks everything was fine until we both installed the longer belltech shackles. within a week of the shackle install (and one or two off road adventures) both trucks had broken the left side exhaust hanger. as long as you dont want to install lift shackles you will have no problems, the shackles move the leaf spring bolt down beside the widest part of the tube and they hit when flexed
