Hillbank Thunderbolt exhaust pictures

Does anyone who purchased a Thunderbolt exhaust from Hillbank have any pictures of the final install? I purchased one and am curious as to how it looks with the stainless tips that come with it. Thanks, Bill

rewnzing has one installed but doesnt have the tips on yet because he didnt want to get them salt coverd...

look at the rollpan pics that has the tips... not a stock rear end but gives you an idea of what they look like...

Hey Bill and 4X2XLT, I picked up the same exhaust also, and would like to see how it looks exiting the rear without the rollpan cutouts? or im wondering if the tail sections could be bent to exit each side behind the wheel.
Going to wait till spring to install, by then my muffler should be rusted through completly

Im thinking along the same lines for mine. maybe making new pipes to replace the hitch extensions. Post it if you do anything like this.

You guys read my mind! I'm thinking the same thing but I'll put them out the back first. If I don't like that I may have a shop bend some pipe to put them on a 45 angle.

Im going to have a shop install it, probably Mufflex in Trenton (NJ) I'll have them install it all step back and see if i like it, if not them have them bend the pipes, of course letting them know what my ideas are first and make sure they would do it (im sure they will, they do custom exhausts all the time)
And im not to sure how the drivers side exit would hang/mount have to look under there.
This type of exit would also eliminate the tightness fitting around the spare to.
