woop woop...

so im about to get a roll pan (prolly sir michaels) and i had an idea of how to modify it...

i was thinking i could get dual exhaust finally on my truck but have it exit out of the roll pan. not like the "holy rollie" roll pans with the holes pre cut... im thinking more like cutting 2 big holes for the tips that i want. the tips are a single in dual out style that are about 2.5"-3" and they angle up. I think itll look sick.

suggestions.... ideas.... comments...... they are all welcome.

this is a quick and pretty raw sketch of what itll look like.

and the tips will be single in dual out... that way itll be like 4 pipes comin out the back of my truck.

Do you plan on ever bagging your truck or going very low? If so, don't waste your time .. in the end you will probably have to cut your exhaust off cause you won't have room to run it over your axle. :read:

a guy i knew ran a setup like that... i think it looks kindof funny. Yes, you can do it, but usually guys with mini's do it:read:

not to mention the amount of exhaust crap that gets on the rollpan. If you do a 7" rear drop, you'll have to dump before the axle anyways.

I've seen it done on an S10. It was ok at best...he had metal surrounds for the exhaust tips (the kinds meant to exit exaust out of a body panel) If you just simply cut holes i think it will look horrible :read:

As stated above, if you plan to ever drop your truck i wouldn't waste your time as you won't have the clearance to run exhaust over the axle and out the back.

hmmm.... ok.

i only thought about it cause my cousin had a similar setup on his sonoma, but he had his exit out the middle of his roll pan on the bottom, he also had his truck juiced at this time i believe... i think he got rid of it when he went to air.


o well, it was a thought that i thought looked cool... ill keep ya'll updated on the progress.

Don't do it! - Leave the pan smooth.

I wouldn't do it either...i love the look of no exhaust pipes or anything...go ahead and do yourself a favor and get your exhaust done so the muffler dumps before the axle...saves you time and money in the long run, and looks a lot better IMO.

is that a **** pipe, where the tips are directly off the muffler...i'de do what everyone else has said and go ahead and just dump it. mine is just the stock exhaust, but when i lowered it 6in. in the back, the pipe hit the rear axle so i had to cut it off right behind the muffler. so if there is any thought in your mind about dropping your truck, go ahead and dump it. it'll save you in the long run. but if you still wanna go with exhaust al the way back, i'd just get duals and find some low profile tips.

got my truck lowered 6 inches already, no problems with clearance issues on the tail pipe...


but baggin it... IF i wanted to retain my tail pipes and not dump it i could just run it near the frame and have it clear the axle by keeping it about the same height as the notch.... but... thats a big IF.
