Default I installed the OEM dual exhaust

Hey guys, I finally got around to installing the dual exhaust with the new bumper that has the cutouts. It ended up costing me about $500. This is the muffler and tail pipes with the chrome tips from the Hemi Rams. It sounds pretty good, its a little loud at certain RPMs, but its still extremely quiet on the highway unless I really punch it to get around someone.

It all bolts right on. It took me a while to do but I was taking my sweet time, I'll bet anyone with any experience with exhausts could do this in under 2 hours. The bumper took way longer then I expected as I has to swap out the brackets and the step pad. The bumper was after market off EBay, the fitment was perfect and it looks good, cost was about $250 which is far cheaper then the OEM.

Besides the muffler, tail pipes, exhaust tips and bumper, all you need is 1 exhaust hanger for the passenger side tail pipe.

I tried to post a video on here but it won't let me. If anyone would like to see a short video please PM me with your email address and I'll be happy to send you as many videos from any angle that you want.

Nice!!! I think your the first here to actually do it. Ive heard a few people mention doing this or how-to so itll be nice for future use of others.

Good job!!

You should upload a video to youtube then use the "insert link button" (the globe with a chain) to paste it here.

And definitely post some before and after pics when you get the chance. Did you go painted (sport) or chrome bumper?

Good job though! Congrats on the new sound and look!!

That sounds awesome, this is something I'd like to do for my truck, did you get the exhaust and muffler off someone else on the forum? Would love to see some video or pictures.

Actually I'm not the first to do this, if you check the other topics in the Pentastar forums you'll see that I'm the 2nd person to do this.

I'm not at all familiar with posting anything on YouTube so that's probably not gonna happen. But like I said I'd be happy to send anyone a video, just PM me your email address.

I don't notice any rattle, I am not sure what you mean by pingy. When I hit the gas hard it certainly is much louder then the original exhaust. There is a little drone I think when driving in low speed limit areas like in a residential area with a lot of stop signs, I had a few people go for a ride with me and they think it sounds awesome. Keep in mind I was only after the look, I am not a fan of a louder exhaust, I like it quiet..lol

I am pretty happy with this mod.
