Replaced Straight Pipe


Recommended Posts

Well as I was crawling under the truck I noticed the straight pipe was looking rather rotten and full of small holes. So I now replaced it with a fresh piece of pipe and no longer have to worry about that. What was amazing is the clamp came off good and was totally re-usable. I didn't break them or gall up the threads. I chased he threads with a nut and anti-seized them again and back on the pipe they went. 11 year old clamps and still going. :wow:

From what I see in the picture, your delete pipe fits inside of the stock exhaust. What size is it?I'm just stupid, but I'm afraid if I buy a 3" piece of pipe, it will be the exact same size as the stock exhaust pipe, and it won't fit inside of the other pipe. :doh: I guess I could break out the measuring tape.

The new pipe is 3" OD and had it cut to 64" long. Then went down the street to the muffler shop and had a guy expand the ends to accept 3" OD inside. Slip it in and clamp it down tight. Then welded on a few bits of re-bar for hangers. Like I said it was cheap at $23 bucks. :whistle:
