Default Exhaust question

Thought I would see if anybody knows or not before I cut the cat off and got a measurement, but does anybody know the ID and OD of the collector pipes before the cat? I'm trying to do a cheapy fix and straight piping the single exhaust. So I'm looking at buying a y collector and need to know the measurements. I don't want to cut it off and not be able to drive the truck for awhile (dang sound police) while I wait for parts. Especially since I just put my car away for the year.

I just did mine, and the OD was just shy of 3". I ended up replacing all the cat back with 3"...

Thanks but I need the od of the tubes coming down from the manifolds, headers in my case. I can get away with not running a cat where I'm at. My cat was burbling before the headers and now it's really bad lol.

If anything, I'll have to cut the exhaust off my parts truck and measure those. Don't want to make it easier for stuff to get in that motor though since it's still good.

1-7/8 ID, so figure 2" OD. The hick that owned my truck before butchered those pipes, had to get them fixed up too...

I am going through the same situation right now I just got my 99 ram. the guy I got it from cut the cat out and now I get to fix it. im looking to just do a cheap fix and already have some of the exhaust parts but couldn't find a smaller y pipe so am having to reduce it from 3" to the stock piping that is behind where the cat was.
