Does anyone else have problems with the heat from their exhaust causing paint bubbles? I have a fully deleted 08 and the paint is bubbling above the tail pipe. Would an exhaust tip act as a heat shield? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to prevent this?

Try moving the tail pipe further from the body. If you loosen the clamps on the last couple sections you should be able to move it far enough away to not have any issue.

Can you post a pic of the paint you are describing? It's pretty unlikely that enough heat is coming out of your tail pipe to bubble the paint when the truck is at a standstill. Once you are moving at even 5 mph, there is enough wind turbulence to move the hot exhaust away from the body.
