just over $400, and I'd pay it again, you get what you pay for.

all 3" mandrel bent, they made the x-pipe too.

it was a tight fit under my regular cab 4x4 truck. with the true dual pipes, dual cutouts, x-pipe, and dumped mufflers.

Well I just had my exhaust done at Callahan's in Pontiac. Gotta say I was very pleased. Turns out their custom guy is "james" here on the board. He spent about 5+ hours bending my duals. When I asked him to change a couple things "no problem, I want you to be happy" was the reply. I'll post up some pics later today.

Where ever you go. I do not recommend Muffler Man on Dixie Hwy. and Scott Lk. Rd.
I paid $312.00 For exhaust from end of cab to rear bumper. (True Dual)(two V-Force Mufflers). Then one said decided to fall off and fold under and around axle and they would not cover it under warranty. Was only 3 months old to. ANd it had a 6 month warranty.

seems pretty fair considering you got 2 mufflers too.

typically mufflers dont fold themselves around axles, what did you do to caue it? back into a snow bank?

if you caused it then it isnt their problem, if it was something they did to cause it then you got shafted. either way that isnt a bad price.

Yea the price wasnt to bad. But they wanted $212.00 just to fix the one side that folded under the axle(no new muffler Just reweld it). When they bolted the hangers up the bolt either broke or fell out going down a dirt road. So they put another bolt in that(covered under warranty) then abouta month later the hanger came out of the muffler and made the muffler fold under the axle.

Over the years I've probably had at least 6 or 7 systems done at Muffler Man. They have always done a good job and I have no complaints. Knowing you and the stupid stuff you do, I would believe that you beat the shit out of it. A muffler doesn't just suddenly fall off and fold underneath. You would hear it loosen up and have time to repair it if you didn't ignore it.

Yes, the muffler man on Dixie at Scott Lake Rd. Since that's the one you mentioned, I didn't think I needed to repeat the address for you to figure it out.
