Welcome to the Z family from Southern Georgia!

I'm a fairly recent owner myself, but I think the dual exhaust is a good thing. My came with it (installed by previous owner; exits beneath the bumper), but I plan to change it as it is rubbing against the spare tire and the bumper. I will probably go with a system that exits behind the rear wheels. I hope this helps.:)

Welcome!! Glad to have you with us!!

yeah i have dual exhaust too, by the first owner, but only one muffler. there are a lot of options for doing a true dual exhaust though, x-pipe, SpinTech mufflers, you name it

i think running boards would be cool, not my cup of tea but i do like the look

where ya from?

oh one other thing, not sure how to tell the difference between the 5.2 and the 5.9 unless you know for sure yours is an R/T, but they did put the 5.9 in some quad cabs as well. if you dont have the window sticker go here and click Send us an Email, put down the VIN of your truck and ask for a build sheet. they will send you an email with everything that went on your truck from the factory
