Default Stock Dual tailpipes

Just wanted to share my story of wanting to put the stock dual tailpipe set up on my 1500 hemi.It came with the single exhaust,which was ok but I liked the look of thee dual set up.I wasnt interested in a loud exhaust system.I recently was hit on the passenger side rear in a parking lot so the bumper had to be changed anyway.I asked if the bumpers were the same price to get the one with the exhaust cutouts.They agreed to match the price so here it starts.I phoned the Dodge dealer to find out what the cost of converting it would be.They said close to $2000.00 for the parts.450.00 for the muffler alone.Ouch.I found one on craigslist from a 2012 for $100.Bought it.went to my local muffler shop to get an estimate on a custom tailpipe.They had just done a hemi the day before and had taken the factory tailpipes off to install bigger ones.They said I could have them for the price of the labour to install them.So now Im up to $300.00 total cost for the conversion.Bumper went thru insurance.The truck will look much better when I get it all done.Usually,when I start changing things on my vehicles,It costs way more than I plan.Lucky this time.

Congrats on on the find!

Sounds like you're going to have the truck fixed up right very soon.

Be sure to post some pics when you get it finished

$450 for the factory mufflers? What a rip off!

Yes $450 is a rip off.I cant see them selling many of those. The sound is the same as single exhaust.Just looks better to me.
