Look at Trucksngolf's pic he posted.


YES. You can cut the tailpipe off behind the muffler...you have 4 freakin' cats....there's already LOTS of backpressure in front of those. Dumped exhaust is what i've been rockin' for over a year now and MANY MANY people run the same.

Alright, Ill cut it off right after the muffler. I am going to ask the guy down the street to cut and weld my hitch, he welds for a living.
So the cross member is what the tow hooks attatch to? Can I just spray some black rustoleum in there or does it have to be sanded and prepared? doesnt rustoleum stick to anything? I was thinking about just spraying the exposed part of the frame too.

you are gonna need to sand those bumper brackets....sand the zinc coating off of them. Paint dont like to stick to 'em I've found, unless you sand 'em. I used bedliner in a can on mine and the crossmember.

Looks good higher. Valance looks terrible. You might want to consider dropping down the bumper a little so when you flex your bumper wont push into your fenders
