Looking for a cheap exhaust for a 2001 V8 Lariat

I have a 2001 F-150 V8, extended cab, 8 foot bed and my exhaust rusted out just in front of the muffler, so to ease my wife's complaints I have agreed to fix it (it really sounds pretty cool now sadly).

Does anyone know where I can buy (cheaply) a new pre-bent exhaust pipe for that thing? I don't have access to a ton of tools to make my own, but I figured I was gonna swap my rusted out pipe and muffler (the cat is good and was recently replaced) with a cherry bomb style or other similarly inexpensive muffler, but I'm at a loss for where to get a pre-bent exhaust pipe without spending hundreds.

I drive this thing under 4000 miles a year so whatever I put in there isn't going to see a ton of use, so I want to keep it as inexpensive as possible.

Thanks!!

Chris

I'm in the same boat where my exhaust has rusted and broke off and my muffler kinda looks like Swiss cheese. The best deal I've found is summit racing makes a cat back kit for 200 bucks. You could probably swap out the muffler for a Magnaflow or something to make it sound a little more kick ***. If anyone else knows a cheaper alternative I'd be interested in hearing it too. For the moment I bought a coupler at Canadian Tire and connected the broken pipes back together. Cost 15 bucks for that and the clamps.

OK, so I did some mickey mouse guestimating...and I think I have found my solution, but I've got to do some measuring this weekend to see if it will actually work.

In my case, the cat is good, so I'm going to cut off the exhaust after it, then install one of
THESE THESE
along with a cheap
Cherry Bomb glasspack Cherry Bomb glasspack
and just figure something out for a midpipe between the cat and the muffler (I think it's just a short section of straight pipe.) My goal is to keep this whole repair around 100 bucks, but if it looks like I'm SOL, I might just pick up that Summit Racing kit.
