Hey do you guys have exhaust insulation hanging or overlapping the underbody a bit at the transmission tunnel? Something I noticed today , not too concerned.

Yes, that helps keep the heat out of the cab

Ha! It's slow but gets the job done ;) anyways I know why the insulation is there, I'm wondering if it's normal to have it hanging down a bit, can't tell if I should detour it or if it's just sloppy assembly.

The shop should have been able to adjust it enough so that it tucks up in the tunnel as nicely as the stock exhaust.  I have Eibach springs (1.5" drop) and have never had a clearance issue with my SOLO exhaust.

They didn't touch the exhaust other than weld in the bung. That was expensive enough. I guess I'll have to go back and see if there is something they can do to get it higher in the tunnel. I noticed the tips are uneven now, so they ganked that up.

So a call to Jeff fixed my problem - loosen and rotate the front pipe counter clockwise to swing the flex pipe  up into the tunnel further.  Then tighten it all down front, rear, then hanger.  Gains about an inch in height from the ground.  Cool.
