Actually, if you buy a butane torch, and get a couple of metal coat hangers, you can do a weld yourself.

Shape the coat hangers so they sit on/in the ring where the two pieces meet, and heat with the butane torch until it melts. It will fill in instantly, takes about 2 hours to cool and cure, and lasts forever.

It's actually how I fix small exhaust leaks, or attach mufflers, to my race cars. It will hold the pressure and heat of an exhaust system pretty easily.

((As for the butane torch, I mean one of the small pen style ones. It'll take you about ten minutes to do the weld, and they hold about 45 min in fuel.))

Well I hope it works out then! A friend of mine ran the Summit mufflers on his 70 Chevy truck and they sounded very good. They are the ones in my radar if I ever get permission from the misses to start modding. Does you truck have a resonator at the back? You may want to think about removing it. This is something you can do after the muffler is on though.

and yes I think it does have a resonator but I plan on just cutting off everything from the muffler back and just putting the new muffler on with a dump tip where the old one was so that will all be gone anyway.

Turn downs FTW!!! Should sound very nice then. I am thinking of doing a side exit in front of the rear tire.
