Cool! Post up a new thread when you get it, looks like a clean truck! I bet the fly fishing in WV is a whole lot better than here, used to live in Wyoming, so I got spoiled fly fishing, haven't touched a spin reel in over 10 years

Well I got an email from BJ's that the y-pipe I've had on backorder for months is now discontinued. Anyone know where I can get a new one? Or I guess I'll have to have a muffler shop fab one. All the ones I can find are for 80 and newer, they're different somehow.

Here's what mine looks like now, who knows how long that muffler tape has been on there!

That's what I'll have to do, was hoping to find a new one I could just bolt up myself, oh well. And I should have the truck here in a couple months, early Sept I'm planning .

the y pipe is different because the driveshaft is on different sides. i made one using the flowmaster Y junction. kept the pipes up nice and the Y just barely bits between the frame and transfer case. i then ran 3" to the back.
