    I'm a lurk/plot/plan guy. I've been cross referencing parts for a while. My welding sucks so I will be using lap style clamps, mandrel bent fittings, slip connectors...I've done it before and it held up well. It will be hack but should be fine until I can talk myself into a $600 system. I'm going to use the factory hangers and it will dump just after the axle.

    Shit !!!! that is whats missing. I need to get on that but just the emblem is not enough. I was thinking on getting these strewn all over the truck to make sure people are reminded that I drive a Chevy.

    Got my pirate hooks today. I think the guy who sold them had no clue what he had. every other oem set I found was 80+ bucks. I got these for 40 shipped. Now I can do a skull and crossbones decal on the hood.

    Not having access to a garage slightly hinders ones ability to do much unfortunately. Sat all the leveling shit going in got a hot date with a lift.

    I didn't buy parts to just sit around collect dust on a shelf. If I did that I would want each member to shoe me in the fucking nuts.

    So I'm not totally convinced that the side exhaust is the right idea. I want some sound but don't want it to be stupid loud. As a backup I ordered the mbrp 4" over the axle pipe for a deisel. Dam thing was only 65 bucks.
