I havnt had any trouble with cops but a fiends of mine with a CR got a ticket and just put a straite through muffler on it. i'm considering a muffler to help out with the smoke i'm putting out. Its past the point of being cool/fun. Its straite up rediciolous how much i'll put out.

My exhaust is running straight right out underneath the floorboard of the cab for a few weeks now. Loud as hell.

Took the stacks off to put a spray in liner in the bed and been to lazy to put them back in.

I haven't had any trouble with the cops.

i dont think a muffler is going to help clear any smoke, they just wont hear you cumming from as far away:lol3:

i run 4" straight pipes to my stack, no muff, no cats. loud, but so far, no problems. cops here don't seem to care too much as long as you're not being stupid. my wrx, has 3" turbo back with nothing but a straight through racing muffler out back, very loud, never had a problem. my wife was driving it a couple weeks ago, racing a vw vr6, got pulled over, speeding ticket and all that but never anything about the exhaust.

guess we're lucky here!

it all depends on where you live. if youre in the country somewhere it's more likely that your truck is music to their ears. if youre in suburbs just dont let er rip when people are around

I've never had any trouble with cops, even when the pipe was broken and dumping under the cab, and thats the kind of loud where you have to almost yell to talk to someone in the cab with the windows up.

My 01 had a straight 5" on it when I got it, and no trouble (so far) with the police or anyone else. Then again, i'm an old fart and I don't get on it where folks are gonna get upset.

Ops

HAHA, I had the same thought when I did my muffler and resonator, give it a week and you'll be wanting it even louder. BTW, is your pipe a 3" like my '01 or did you luck out and get a 4"?
