Red face A tip on installing tips

So I finally installed my new 5" double walled MBRP black tips on my truck, id post better pics during the day but that will have to wait... you'll see what i mean...







I was gonna weld them later this week and figured the clamps would do a good enough job... apparently not.... tip flew off on the highway and the 18 wheeler behind me almost lost control trying to avoid it, he didnt succeed....



I have a new one on order and picking it up tmr. THIS TIME THEY ARE GETTING WELDED!!

That really sucks...funny as hell but still sucks. I guess you can chalk that up as a lesson learned.

I installed my chrome 5"X12" angled w/ rolled edge tip's last sunday and I used the factory 4" tip as a reducer, cut to the length I needed, cut off the factory clamp that attaches the factory tail pipe piece after the resonators and used 3" wide X 2 1/4" stainless band clamps; also used these clamps for my dod18m mufflex system and threw their cheap azz clamp's away. Strong and they seal great. and YES to anyone wondering if it changes the exhaust sound, DEEPER.
