Yea the exhaust is on my list, the CAT cost alot and I tried to remove the muffler and everything is well rusted solid so I'm going to have to cut the pipes, wonderful!

I needed a new shaft more then the exhaust cause my old shaft is exhibiting some nasty vibration, when I lifted the rear end on jack stands put the truck in drive you could see the driveshaft bobbing up and down a little.

Stronger. I thought it would be cheaper but was I wrong, either way it was going to be expensive and damn it was. But hey I don't have to worry about this shaft! The replacement shaft tube is rated to about 4500 ft-lbs and 7500 RPM.
