    Default dual side or dual rear

    My question is more this. With a stock side exit obviously the paint gets affected. Will the chrome bumper get affected in the same way with a rear exit exhaust? Just trying to decide which to go with.

    Thanks

    Dual side would look great, just keep the pipe away from the paint a little

    Agreed. Ive had mine both ways. Currently I have single out of the stock location only tucked up a bit more so i dont tear it off when im out in the woods... Out the back never affected my bumper, and the paint wont get messed up unless it is basically touching it...

    Would the exits out the back make it a little louder as opposed to the side?

    i have a friend who had his flowmasters exit out the side. so i compared his side exit versus my rear exit. it didn't really sound any different on the outside. the only place it differ was inside the cabin. his was more louder than mine.

    I'm thinking I look the look better of the rear exit so that's what I'll go with.
    Thanks for the input.
