The first real mod to my truck...

Ok so it's actually two mods. The first is I cut up my airbox after doing the airbox mod. My cutting ability leaves a lot to be desired. The second is the new exhaust tip I put on. I hate the way the standard exhaust tip just hangs right behind the tire. I wanted it to come out the back. I don't want to spend the money on a whole new exhaust system so I simply cut off the back of the exhaust and put on a slightly custom tip. I don't like how it looks from the side though so I may change it a bit in the future. Tell me what you guys think.

I like the way that looks coming out the rear. From the side maybe you should flip the clamp so you don't have the clamp hanging under the pipe. Just a suggestion, but it looks real good either way.

I do notice a difference in sound above 3,000 rpm so I like that, and I was thinking about cutting it up more but I'm not sure how much is too much. and about the clamp thing I think either way it's going to be noticable but maybe it will look better the other way.

looks good, take your truck to a muffler shop and pay the guys $10 to weld those pipes up so you dont have the clamps hanging there
