Default Exhaust Shop Problems

So once again Ill list the exhaust setup I want-
2.5" true duals with Super 10 mufflers, Magnaflow X pipe, and 5" tips, ALL STAINLESS.

I took it to another shop today and since I want all stainless pipes, they said they wouldnt be able to weld stainless to stainless accessories (X Pipe). They also questioned the grade of stainless with the pipes and X Pipe, and they claimed the Maggie X pipe is a lower quality grade stainless than maybe the pipes would be. There is just no way in heck im going to put aluminium pipes on in Ohio and have them rust out in a year or two. After all this they told me they could bend the pipes and i would have to take it to a welder to get the job done. Luckily my cousin is a welder who primarily only works on Rams, but id have to pay two shops to work on it. Dont know if i should do this or get more opinions on it. Ive seen plenty of clips with setups exactly like this just maybe with different mufflers, so im just getting frustrated at this point.

You're thinking correctly. Aluminized pipe is OK especially out of the snow/salt, but up there yeah do stainless and you'll be done with the exhaust. It's useless if you get SS pipe and use mild steel welding wire(sounds like that was the issue....they didn't have SS welding capability). Keep looking. SS pipe with SS welds, and you'll be happy.
