Default Mega Cab exhaust question

Unfortunately, I have to wait until August to do my mods, but until then, I'm doing as much research as I can so I can make informed choices when I buy my parts.

Problem is, I have an 06 Mega Cab with the 5.7, but I've heard it's built on the 2500 chassis, and I want to do an exhaust. Should I be looking at 1500-compatible exhausts, or 2500s? Also, I'd like to do true duals, but I'm not sure what the cost should be for that; also, is that an install I can do myself?

I get a shop to custom fab for you and use either a Flomaster or other top name muffler.

Not a job you want to tackle yourself. You have to figure out how to get past the fuel tank on the driver's side, you'll have hangar issues and I don't think you'll find a kit that will get you a true dual.

If you really want true duals on this truck, I'd take it to a shop so they can get it up in the air, measure and fab something that will fit.

In my case, I went with a single in / dual out muffler and had the shop build my two tailpipes for me. It worked great.

Good advice; thanks. I really do want to do true duals, but I also want to do headers. Does it matter which I do first, or can I just do what my budget allows?

I'd do the dual system first...then putting the headers in will be a breeze.

Cool. I'll look down that route. Any resources where I can read up on headers? I'm thinking long tubes, but I don't know the pros and cons.
