Need help with trick exhaust

Hey guys...I'm planning on running my exhaust out the side through the body kind of like the pic below. does anyone know where I can find a cut out flange kind of like the one shown? I've googled the hell out of it but can't find one anywhere.

Re: Need help with trick exhaust

where do you plan on it exiting?
if its near the front the whole side of the truck is going to be covered with soot.
i wouldnt do it to my truck but it would definatley stand out
also, it would also be one big @ss hole in the side of your truck

Looks like it would be realy easy to fab up...do you have any welding skills?That would be pretty slick,if you were alittle closer i could help you out.

Re: Need help with trick exhaust

the piping part would be relatively to fab but i know there are pre fab'd kits out there. i see them on the sides of boats all the time. i did find this part which might work out but they want nearly $400!!!



my exhaust exits in front of the rear tire now and as far as smoke on the side goes...i'm not too worried about it. I wash my truck once a week at the very least and I'm not running smokey tunes at all. either way...i think a little soot would be worth having a set up like this!

Re: Need help with trick exhaust

what if I did a straight cut tip like this and only had it stick out about 1/2" or so past the flange?

i would go with the flush one, and looking at that tip if you have welding skills or know someone that does, it could be done pretty easily

Re: Need help with trick exhaust

Get some 16 gauge sheet metal and roll it by hand to fit the curve of the truck.
Cut whatever size pipe you want to the angle you want it to exit.
Trace pipe onto inside of plate.
Cut out hole.
Insert pipe and weld around inside.
Trim off excess that's sticking out.
Weld around that cut and finish the weld smooth with a flapper disc on a 4" grinder.
Paint or chrome it when it's done.
Cut big ass hole in side of truck and mount the plate.
When you mount the exhaust to the piece you made use flex tubing so it can all move with the truck.

I'd bet you can knock it out for 50 bucks plus whatever finish you want on it.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.
