Truck goodies done
 
So last week I got my timbrens done and yesterday my 5" tips came in. So today I got em all welded up and done and I'm very happy with the results. I was looking at getting a 2.25-4" adaptor but realized that the factory exhaust tip is basically an adaptor so after some cutting and welding I was able to use the factory tip as the adaptor and was able to re install the ball connection for adjustment. Here's some pix. Only took bout 45 minutes start to finish

Thanks guys! I can't stop looking at them when ever I walk by my truck.. It makes it look soooooooo much better after seeing the stick tips they just look so tiny now. And the truck actually sounds better the tips give it a more aggressive sound it seems

Nice job!!!:smiley_thumbs_up: Good looking ride. I was wondering after I had my shorty put back on, after flowmaster install, that maybe I should have went with bigger pipes. So you think it makes it sound meaner?

Yea I think for sure it made a difference. It's hard to explain but it changed the sound of the exhaust. Has more of a bassier lower tone to it
