Pros and cons exhaust upgrade

I'm going to order a new 5" exhaust system just can't decide between if I want it to exit out the side or dump down after the axle. Right now my stock one dumps out the side and gets the side of the truck all black from the soot. I'm thinking about having it dump strait down but dont know if it will gass me out when it's sitting there idling. Anyone have an opinion either way?

Can I ask why you want a 5". There's no performance increase from 4 to 5. And I would dump it out side of the truck. Just put turn downs on the end

If you dump right after the axle then the underside will get covered with soot. Why not install another bend or two and exit after the tire?

Mine exits right after the passenger tire at an angle and seems to be fine. Truck and tailgate are fairly clean considering how little I wash it.

No real reason for going to 5" just figured since im there go big and let it breath. It dumps out the pass side after the tire, I think it is stock it measures 3 1/2" at the tip.

And another thing the five all most seems to be quieter at idle over the 4 but boy when I crack it open you know even when I had the stock turbo on the s366 I have now sounds even better
