    i wouldnt run it without an exhaust. no back pressure and would burn your valves up i believe

    no thats what i thought to but as long as u have a header pipe on it and it runs away from the engine that creates back pressure thats how ppl get away with runnin straight pipes

    u alredy have one its the pipe that comes out of the engine and connect to ur exhaust...ur exhaust is split into two pieces to make it easier to take off ur header pipe is the half thats connected to the engine

    do what you want but i did that when I had my 02 rancher and after 2 rides my valves were toast. besides, it sounds like crap. that one bend strait out the motor is not gonna be enough back pressure. they also say its not good for newer trucks to run real strait pipes. it loses back pressure, runs lean, and also looses torque.

    glasspacks work too. I was riding with a brute with a glasspack the other weekend and it actually sounded pretty sweet.

    hey man ive took out the spark arrestor on my bruin before and yeah it sounds cool and all but it is illegal because it may 'catch the woods on fire' since youre engine produces flames although this would be very rare but yeah i dont recomend doin it for a long time becauseyou loose backpressure and you can burn up your o-rings

    the glasspacks depending on the size u get is where the price comes from, mine was 24 bucks and some change a piece for a 22inch with 2inch inlets and outlets. and mine are sticking up at about a 80 85 degree angle so if it catches the woods on fire im lettin it burn. it needs it anyway.

    well the part store i got mine at is only in our little town.    but yea autozone or advance auto parts maybe o'reileys or pepboys also has alot of stuff but any of the should have them. one of my buddies works for advance and he said they have them but wat he calls a glasspack idk.          O and fyi its not a direct fit muffler you'll have to do some fabrication for mounts and you will most definetely need a reducer.   i got a 2 inch to 1 1/4 i think it was maybe 1 1/2 and then a reducer from that to a 3/4 and i still had to cut slots in it and beat it with a hammer to get it to fit the header pipe.  i think i got some pictures of how it is on my rancher ill post up
