It's once system with 3 tip outlet options. They don't mate up to the factory system.
I understand that, my thought was to get one to mount to the trail exhaust, if I purchased it.

Have ya checked out the single exit option?
Yes, I dont want the exhaust anywhere near my wheels.

As far as an intoxicating sound track I can guarantee my machine will make heads explode.

My exhaust is probably on hold. I am working with Yukon Gear oninstalling their new limited slip option. It is not a factory knock off and my power injected Gladiator will test it!

Will this exhaust interfere with the Rock Krawler Pro X lift?

Am very interested in either the tread edition single side exit, or maybe even go with the dual side exit for the 2021 Mojave that I ordered yesterday.
I am also planning on installing a set of the XL Regular RokBlokz splash guards on the rear wheels.
My concern is will the side exit exhaust pipe & tip interfere with the RokBlokz frame mounting bracket, and or, be too close to the inner edge of the flap itself (causing possible melting of the flap)?
It's kind of hard to determine from the pictures on the product web site, and would hate to order the system only to find out they won't work together.

Youll have to grind the bracket down to clear the exhaust but the flap isnt affected by the exhaust. Not near hot enough that far back.

Thanks for the reply Kurt. I had read your posts on both your trail edition exhaust, and the RokBlokz. Wish I had a great helper like you do for assistance with the install. ;)
Also thanks for the quick videos you made for this exhaust, as it really demonstrated the varying tones of the exhaust under different loads/conditions extremely well.

The reason for the side exit question was that with your trail edition exhaust, after the kick up over the axle, the pipe straightens out & runs parallel to the frame then turns down, pretty much following the routing of the original rear resonator.

The product images for the side exit exhaust appear that the pipe & rather large 5" tip make an outward angle very quickly after the kick up, and the tip looks like it is positioned directly below the fender flare.

Depending on that pipe angle, combined with large diameter tip, it could require the inner top edge of the flap, as well as the bracket to be trimmed for clearance.
The complication of trimming the upper corner of the flap is that depending on how much material needs removed, it could compromise the mounting slots in the poly vinyl flap material.

I was shop manager, & lead installer in my family's truck cap & accessory business for over 25 years. So I have installed a few splash guards in my time. Believe me that this type of poly vinyl splash guard can partially disfigure & melt due to the radiant heat of an exhaust pipe that is positioned too close on a long highway trip.

Which kit are you going with? You might need the Loop Replacement Pipe for the larger lifts. I'll also ping the development team and see if they have more insights.
