    I would not say it coud'nt be done but I do know that even the dealership does not have an option when you buy their OEM exhaust that exits in the rear. They sell a flat repair kit for the trucks that have rear exit exhaust. The kit has a mini compressor and fix-it kit.
    The diference between stupidity and genius is that genius has limits.

    Cool spare wheel

    The exhaust shop should have made the exhaust so the spare fits. I've seen hundreds of duals on pickups with the spare in the stock location. I'd go back and make them redo it.

    if those are custom bent pipes then get your ass back over to the shop and tell them your spare doesnt fit. if they dont redo it then i would raise hell. but you should have had your spare under the truck b4 they put the exhaust on. i took my truck to a muffler shop and they had custom bent pipes that go around my spare.

    Just informational. If it is a purchased dual exhaust many of the manufacturers specify the removal of the spare, even the chevy dealer does it, as I said. But, as everyone else here is saying, if they are custom bent they should have given you an option. Good Luck!

    yeah i bought the gm performance dual system so the pipes were not custom bent. its kinda bs how a gm product cant be made to fit better. i guess my bad, should have done better research..on the upside it does sound good...thanks everyone

    Just an FYI, the Gibson systems fit around the spare.
