Got one of those tips on my truck.

A friend of mine asked if I had to check that no vagrant is sleeping in there before I started it, the exhaust is so big!

Now I just need the 4" MRBP exhaust to connect the turbo to the tip.

Figured you were doing something constructive like that to order 2 vagrant's sleeping holes.

Nice job! Where's the spare going to go?

Also, very cunning build! Any vagrants trying to sleep in those big tips will slip out due to the downward slope.

And, you got a nice set of peacocks!

I don't like the look of those, too high etc.

Maybe a space saver - hehe just kidding

Think you've gotta be a bit more bendy with your Y pipe. Like make it more of a T and go around the spare. As it's 1 pipe splitting into 2 pipes the same diameter the gas has got twice the volume to flow into so, in theory at least, making your Y more angular shouldn't impact performance.

Spider mounts don't do much to keep the weight & centre of gravity low. Only seen one on a bit of a show truck - it had the raising side steps etc. It looked like a Paris-Dakar wanna be with no visibility out of the rear window and the cargo space severely compromised. Also the 'sports' bar on these trucks are usually only held on to the top cap of the tray by 4 bolts. I wouldn't be surprised if the weight of a spare wheel on a spider mount to the sports bar started to rip off somewhere.

LOL thanks clay..

As you'd know when you do a angle cut,you only have to be 1/4" out and where the tip is its miles .
Took me 2 shots to get it where it is clay,got it in the end.

Oh and got Ice T's message about the extra package
Thank You .

Awesome, I was worried it might not have made it.

Pliers have already come in handy several times. Thanks so much.
