Default 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


Was gonna leave it like this but the girlfriend didn't approve

And here is my adaptor it was just tack welded in this pic but I did weld the seem up solid

And here is finished product




The tips I got off ebay $31 a peice they are double walled polished stainless. If anyone looking to do 5" tips and dosent wanna pay out the ass this is the route to go. I got $75 invested into these finished product

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!!! 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
