freebie pipe

my friend had a 3" pipe with ta turndown laying around, and i have been running with nothing after the cats forever and am sick of cab drone, sooooo thought id take it off his hands.

Now, i will say, the pipe fit perfectly over the stock coupler, i just had to seal it, as described below in the diagram haha. It works, so save the unnescessary comments haha. And ill say it, the video doesnt do justice. But on the other hand, im not saying its the greatest setup, but its loud, and piped OUT, so i dont hear/feel it when i dont want to. So thats good enough for me.

That exhaust hanger stuff your using will probably break. We used it on my dads car and it all ended up breaking and he ended up dragging the exhaust down the road.

Other then the large amount of rust it looks good enough. Its not like many people will see it anyway, I mean its under the truck.

I've had exhaust work like that a time or two. Nothing wrong with it, as long as you don't care.

It sounds horrible, though.

We all know it was free. However it's still extremely well, ghetto. It's not "that big of deal" it being under the truck. But I have WAY too much pride in the things i do to my vehicles to be alright with that. As you can see, most others here do as well. "Better than no pipe", is also your doing. Unless it plain just fell off one day??

Your truck, do what you feel, but I'm not quite sure what you expected to hear? I don't think anyone is going to see that exhaust, even being it's free, was going to be "omg thats so rad! or "wow that free exhaust is awesome looking" or whatever. Doesn't seem like its something to gloat about.

Thats kind-ova "mod" you do in a dark alley and never tell anyone about. lol
