New Magnaflow Exhaust

Just installed the Magnaflow exhaust on my 2011 JGC Overland Summit with 5.7. Very sweet sound. While it was direct fit swap, the right side chrome tip sticks out about an inch farther from under the rear bumper than the left side. It has to do with the placement of the stock hangars. We are going to cut the pipe near the chrome tip and weld it the piece back on to line up the two tips under the bumper. Adding CAI next weekend.

No way should you have to cut anything for a cat back exhaust. That helped my decision.

Here are the photos you requested. You can see that the right tip sticks out more than the left. It was $1,600 installed.

$1600 sounds a bit too steep for me... I'd love to hear how it sounds. Anyway you could get a clip up on youtube?

I bought mine off eBay for $872 shipped, and $100 installed. Yikes.

Gentlemen, I looked up my exhaust on ebay and I paid about the same amount as listed on eBay for the Hemi version. If you paid 800 that must have been for the 6 cylinder system. Cost of installation was about 250 for the 8 cylinder system. Add tax and you creep up close to 1600.
