where can I find the current requirements? I would be bummed to learn that I have a quiet exhaust but get turned away at the gates after driving 3+ hours to get there because I have my exhaust configured in a different way than they wanted me to.

EDIT; I googled it.

yep, so you basically have to have an offset muffler to be legal...


A non offset muffler is fine as long as it is chambered from my understanding

if you have straight threw non baffled mufflers you will need to run a super trap in the end of it

What did you do for brake lines?
this truck has abs controller under cab on frame rail, so i came out of that with the front right and front left hard lines to a adapter fitting, to steel braided line down the lower link on the driver side. to driver side caliper, the other line to a adapter with hard line across the back side of axle truss to passenger side then another adapter fitting to steel braided line to passenger caliper. i still need to make some nice clamps to mount the lines to the link bar, temporarily i just have zip ties on it but that will be changed before truck gets wheeled

hard lines are 3/16 line and the steel braided lines are -3 an fitting style

all star performance has everything you need.

a little more grinding under truck and then she is ready to get frame plated in and start some tube work, them stock cross members will be removed once i get some tube worked finished, left them in the to keep frame square and to keep strength in it for now

Looks good man! I hope it goes quick for you!
hoping rear goes quicker than front did haha i think it will but still have lots of little things to finish up in front also, mounting grill, lights, hood possibly 1inch body lift so hood will clear engine cage, fuel system, and more, trying to decide if i want to full cage inside or just do over the top exo cage type set up still not sure yet
