    Default exhaust ideas

    since ill be ordering all the stuff for the lift soon i figured its time to upgrade exhaust as well..ive been looking around and i think im gonna go with pacesetter long tube headers, off road y-pipe, 3" dual pipes and 4" angled tips..any thoughts on this set up?any other ideas are welcome!

    It would be hard to have a better exhaust set-up. I love pacesetter headers. Let me know how it sounds.

    look into Doug Thorley headers, i bought their tri y's and it came with the crossover pipe for a lifted truck. Also the tri y design will work in a lower RPM range and may perform better in a 4x4. I would be carefull running dual 3" exhaust. the set up may not provide enough back pressure and actually cut your overall horsepower. i am planning on redoing the crossover to tuck it up between the frame rails, but no time soon.

    Do em out the side of the truck, right behind the cab...make it look more custom and cleans up the look of the truck quite a bit in my opinion. I will get some pics up of my side exhaust (one side, passenger, only though) after I get a legitimate tip put on it.
