Not bad for $50. Welds look decent with some patching on any leaks.

I decided to try out a muffler delete on my truck. It’s been a couple weeks now, and I am thoroughly happy with it. Cold starts in the parking garage at work are almost ridiculous, but once the truck warms up for a couple minutes, I can’t tell anything has changed unless I’m on the throttle. It’s kind of amazing actually. Best of both worlds.

(Mostly) cold start in said parking garage - windows down.

I also decided to put a chrome tip on it, because why not. I don’t have a really good picture of it, but you can kind of see it here.

Needs a bath.

Since I had to trim the stock tip a little to make the aftermarket tip fit, the little cousin got an upgrade to his truck.

Modifications also include: hitch and hood-mounted tach.

I was scared to do this for months, but I’m glad I did. It’s amazing how quiet an essentially straight piped modern truck it. Three cats and close to 20 feet of pipe will do that.
