I got my exhaust system done in Jackson at a place called Lentz Automotive service center in 2003. i did a goggle search and found this site:

http://www.lentzusa.com/thestory.htm

but did not see the location I used on thier web site. I installed the headers from L&L before I took it to them for the rest of the exhaust system. I had bought and brought with me, Flowmaster delta 40 series mufflers. Lentz bent the 2.5" pipe and installed on my truck including clamps and hangers for under $300. Duals all the way out the back under the rear bumper. Very nice job no rattles or leaks and sounds great. -Ed

I was working at Lentz when Ed had his truck there, But the name is now changed to Harry's they dropped the franchise name but all the same guys still work there. I included the new link. They do fantastic work and even though I moved to a different job, I still take all my exhaust needs to them. They do not have a mandrel bender but do great work, and can do stainless steel too. If you are dead set on mandrel, maybe contact them for suggestions.

building an exhaust with mandrel bent elbows,45s,straight pipe isn't that bad ,just a little time consuming.helps to have a tig welder but can be done with a mig if careful.
