Muffler choice made, can't decide on tailpipe location.

I swear I am the worst when it comes to deciding on things on my truck. It's OK to be differnt sometimes, but if it works good then thats why it's popular.

OK...enough of the thinking BS. I am going to buy a Borla ProXS muffler off Ebay anyday now. My local muffler man is doing the piping out of stainless steel. So, should I Y it out and run daul tailpipes behind each rear wheel or go Lightning (Bassani or '97 F-150 style) with tips in front of right rear tire? To me, both would be cool thus I can't decide.

If one or the other makes a differnce in sound that would be important. I want sound, but not too much at 60 mph crusing down the hyway. My Flowmaster on Silverado had that wonderful drown at 1500 rpm which was crusing speed. I don't want that again, thus my choice of Borla.

Ok...enough blah blah, since I can't make up my mind, please give me your 2 cents. Thank you. Adam

if you wanna be original, get a fuel cell, take out your tank and then run singles infront of both rear tires lol...

i think both look realy good as long as you dont have REALLY big tips otherwise it just doesnt flow at all...

I've always been a fan with the dual exits 45'd behind the rear wheels. They sound way awesome.....and that's my opinion if your muffler is a dual out type. Now if its a single out....go with a stock exit, but change it up. Like change the angle it comes out, that's what i did. I used a 3.5"x18" polished stainless tip that had the slash tip. Sounds good, and not much drone at highway speeds.

Not a fan of the lightning exit, so my vote is for the dual just like Shane said in the above post.

I looked at a few Bassani systems on Ebay that exit in front of the rear tire. Very $$ but cool as hell.

I have a reciever hitch and factory spare, can a muffler shop get dauls to fit around all that? I would think so but??

I think dauls behind the tires would look best, don't you?

ya id go duels at 45's behind the rear tires, i got a single at a 45 pointing at the corner of the bumper and it looks good. the shop should be able to get around the tire if they are good.
