stock exhaust is 3.5in. you could fab up the bend with some U bend from summit or an easier solution woudl be to cut off the rear hanger and drop the whole pipe down a couple inches to where it lines up. then just weld on a longer hanger. i doubt it would interfere with anything with just droping it an inch or two.

I got the 4" MBRP put on awhile ago and just recently took my truck into a muffler shop and got them to cut out the muffler and weld in a chunk...so its straight piped 4" from the turbo back, sounds so badass....like a jet taking off.
DO IT!

Some guys use a couple 45s and some pipe to do the curve. I used some stock pipe from another truck and used the curves out of it.

I don't have any pics on my computer of it. If you look on dieselplace you might find some. If you just want a straight pipe with no muffler in 4 inch these guys seem to be priced decent.

Straight pipe is the shiznit. I have the MBRP with front pipe, no cat, no muffler, etc. and it sounds mean. Sounds like a jet. My favorite is when the truck is cold.
