Finished the exhaust today!
So far, had installed 2.5" pipe from the cats back to the Magnaflow Y mid truck then 6" of 3" diameter pipe into the Magnaflow 18" muffler. Muffler has two 2.5" out that we ran reducers to keep the mandrel bent stock 2.25" back to stock tips.

Sound on this was smooth and powerful sounding (kinda) but needed just a LITTLE more...idle was TOO quiet also.

Ordered a set of 5" black MBPR tips from Discount Auto Performance with the reducers and brought the truck to a performance muffler shop today. I had them cut off in front of the resonators (to delete them) and bump up to 2.5" pipe back to the reducer and 5" tips...lined it all up...made the 15 degree cuts line up with the 15 degree angle on the bumper cutouts and recessed the tips just under the cut out portion. Looks awesome!!

Sound wise...deeper, more muscular, better tone and a bit louder...it DOES add some interior resonance when this is done but I expected it. I will sell the 14" Magnaflow I have locally and stick with the "moderate" 18 inch instead as it is very smooth and mellow but has great sound anytime on the gas!

Next will be Vararam, tb and tonneau...probably dip my wheels black also...
