Oh ok. Well just FYI check out the SLP Loudmouth 1 resonator. It's literally an expanded piece of pipe with nothing inside. It looks like a muffler though so technically you can point at it and say, "yep there's the muffler"

I agree with Fred, cut outs are the way to go

The only problem with cut outs is they are illegal in every state. I would love a full exhaust set up with a cut out so I can run open headers when I want, though.

That is one short arse muffler. It's going to be nasty.

^^Not sure if every 2012 model has the rear bumper with reliefs in them for the tail pipes. It would bug the crap out of me having those relief cuts with no tail pipes to fill them. jmo.. Otherwise I would dump mine at the axle just for the sake of weight savings and durability.

Ok..heres the answer to your dilemma, put the truck up on stands, hang this in the garage at low enough level that your child can start getting pointers on mods and have at it.
