Thinking about trading 5in exhaust back to stock.

I never tow with this vehicle and I'm trying to figure out the advantage of having this 5in exhaust with no cat or muffler. I'm debating trying to find someone to trade their factory exhaust. Yes or No. Any advice is appreciated.

Gosh...guess I'm the outsider then. Other than a "cat-less" truck...I'm running a stock chassis. Not knowing what all you've done to the the truck...or want to do I can't say too much. I know guys that run "tweaked" 6.0L have discovered some issues with 500hp motors. Personally my OEM 3.5" exhaust & 325hp 6.0L does everything I ask of it. The only things I've done so far are to prolong it's life....coolant filter, fuel pressure reg. upgrade, killed the kitty and so on. I've always thought straight piped PSD sounded rough...but then I've run a couple of big kitty cats on 8" straights. Not a fair comparison I say it's your truck...do what you want. If you want to paint it pink with lime green trim, go for it. Though we may have you committed after-wards.

Baffles? What baffles?
Missed a good crowd in Mtn View, Zack, although it was darned hot. Had some rain in the morning, but by 11 when I left for town you couldn't even tell on the pavement.
Then it started to rain about 5...a half hour after I got home.

Beleive me, I'd rather be just about anywhere else other than where I've been for the last week. I guess in the middle of winter FL's high humidty is a welcome thing. But for someone that works in the crap...this junk is for the birds. Hot off the press from TWS's site for New Smyrna Beach at 1045 EST:

Patchy clouds & 86F
Winds WSW @ 5 mph
Dew Point 80F
Humidity....84%, this is the lowest I've seen it in days.

Guess this is what you get when your 7 feet above sea level and less than two miles off the beach.

Yes on the first question and holy crap they're everywhere! Don't get me wrong, Grandma has every right in the world to play golf 7 days a week or what ever she wants to do. More power to her But when Grandpa has spent the last 10 years out in the sun & starting to get really dark...put a shirt on before you go out in public...PLEASE. I don't want to see some 80 year old guy that looks like a dried out leather shoe with white hair growing out of every point on his body...walking around with only pair of shorts & ratty sneakers on.Thank you God I haven't had my eyes burned out by a grandma that looks like the grandpa in a two piece....

OK, now back to the scheduled programming
