    Re: 5" Exhaust Vibration

    4" usually no rattles. My 5 inch was touching the firewall heat pad, the cross member and the spare tire heat shield. I loosened and rotated the downpipe to avoid that heat pad. In doing so it moved the pipe 1/2" away from the cross member and used a crowbar to bend the living crap out of that spare tire heat shield. No vibes after that. Hope that helps.

    Haven't gotten a reply back to my original question.

    If your truck is 2019+ check the V-band bolt as it is long enough to touch the transmission hard lines if you clocked it at the bottom of the pipe like I did.

    For all other years, check the heat shields up front as well as make sure your exhaust isn't touching your spare tire heat shield (I removed mine) or the suspension on a coil spring truck. There is enough adjustment in the hangers/hanger brackets to make the system fit without touching anything.

    The spare tire heat shield had to be removed on my 19 as there was no way the pipe was clearing between in & the coil spring and I didn't want some bent up piece of metal under my truck.

    It never rattled at all prior, but as soon as I took the tip off it began the same at low idle intermittent rumble/rattle.

    I've climbed back and forth on multiple occasions, it's not hitting anywhere!

    The V-band is something I'll try, after soaking it with some liquid wrench.

    Frustrating for sure!

    Seems unlikely but maybe that tip was just heavy enough to pull the tailpipe down enough that it wouldn't rattle and now it's sitting higher with the tip removed?

    Re: 5" Exhaust Vibration

    The weight of the chrome tip is the only thing that I can tie the vibration to.

    I've crawled from front to back numerous times, with and without the engine running, and can't find any place that the exhaust touches anything.

    The hangers all look good, so hopefully later this week I'll get it up on the neighbor's hoist and try to tighten the V-band clamp.

    It has gotten less noticeable since last fall, although perhaps I'm just better at ignoring it!

    I should mention that the system does have a resonator, but I can't get anything to rattle by 'giggling' it while the truck off.

    If I pull down on the outlet, it quits.

    Sorry for the long post, but if we can find the issue, perhaps we can help others.

    Hopefully everyone had a safe and fun Independence Day weekend!
