What would happen if i cut the coffee can muffler off the back so i had more clearence and it wouldn't look so much like a rice rocket? Has anyone done this with the stock exhaust system? If so what does it sound like?

you might get a whistling noise from your exhaust that might or might not annoy you.

I wouldn't hesitate cutting mine off...I still have mine attached, but not for any particular reason.

Take it to a muffler shop, get it cut off, and have the Flow Master you've been lusting after installed. It shoud run $200-300. A better investment than a Dixie horn IMHO.

there's no muffler on my 91, it sounds nice, after a while though it'd be nice to hear the radio and people talking, etc. :)

it's not that loud, but it is always noticeable.
going to be having to do something with the exhaust soon, and when the time comes pretty sure a muffler's going back on, flowmaster should be quieter than it is now :)

If you just cut it off under the body, you stand a good chance of getting carbon monoxide poisoning and being asphyxiated, not neccessarily a bad thing in this case. :cool: :)

Mine will be removed soon for clearance issues, Josh.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Run a little downpipe and you should be fine Ben. Even my topless 40 is cut off midway back with a bootiefab turndown and I never notice exhaust smell with it cept when sitting still for a long time.

What's left of mine will get cut off one of these days when I get off my a$$. It's all dented up with a couple of holes and a lot of rock rash anyway. Seems I get a little ruff on that side of my junk. I was thinking of cutting it at an angle rather than just lopping it straight off.

After about 200k mine totally just fell off on a trip to OBX. I could hear a weirdo noise on the highway in the middle of the night so i pulled into a rest stop. It was just dangling there. With a little struggle i just pulled it off, i didnt want it falling off at highway speeds and possibly hitting someone. I ran it without the "coffee can" for a few months with little problems at all, it even passed inspection i think. Finally a few months ago i got a new one installed and the exhaust almost seems louder in the truck then w/o the small muffler. I almost preferred it without the stupid thing...

For what its worth though, when it was off i got alot of condensation builup around the rear tailgate area.....this might be bad for rust issues. Just a thought.

Yeah well my exhaust sounds like total crap now. It is loud as all get out and has a bunch of leaks and dents in the muffler and piping. So you don't have to worry about fumes. I already get that from the leaks. I will probably just leave it on though until it breaks off. Cause if it is loud after taken off I can't imagine. Cause it sounds so loud to the point where I can't almost muffle it with music.
