Exhaust System 135in vs 139in wheelbase
I have a '98 Ram 1500 with the 5.2 engine. It's a regular cab, 139 inch wheelbase. I've checked all of the exhaust system makers for a single pipe 3" side outlet system.When checking at a jobber site where you can enter the vehicle info, the systems show that they will fit. However, when you check the manufacturer sites, The only truck they show is the extended cab, short bed on a 135 inch wheelbase. I've written to a couple of the manufacturers and they say "sorry, the system shown is for a 135 inch wheelbase. We don't make one for the 139 inch wheelbase." I've been trying to find an extended cab, short bed truck to look at the differences.
I'm thinking that if the hangers are in the right place, I'll be okay with an extension somewhere but I'm not sure. I know I could get it made at a shop but most of their pipes have a kink in the bends. I'd like to have mandrel bent pipes with smooth bends. I realize that may be fussy but the smooth pipes always seem to sound better.
Does anyone know the difference in the exhaust system between a 135 inch and a 139 inch wheelbase truck?
