when you had the dual done, did you have to move your spare tire to your bed?

ok blckout, listen to me and you'll save some money.

U buy a flowmaster 40 series REGULAR on ebay for like $50. get singel in dual out.

Then take it to a local muffler shop (i prefer muffler man) and u tell them you want duals

They will custom bend (make sure it's MANDREL BENT) around your spare tire, I have duals on mine with a spare tire and a roll pan.

This will save you tons of money from buying the kit like $325 or so,
$50 muffler
100 install
maybe 40 in custom tips
--------------------------------
Total = $190 a LOT cheaper than 325
