Figured I worked hard on the install, so I decided to get a little reward out of the deal. Removed the rear catalytic convertor, hollowed out the front one. 3 inch stainless dual exhaust all the way back, going through glasspacks. To a dual tip on each side of the truck behind the tires. Sounds amazing, sure it won't help my gas mileage though

Gotta love getting a custom exhaust on the work truck! I like the dual tip out each side too.

More out of curiosity than anything, how did that mutual split between you and the irrigation guy you were buying out go? Did you end up with the Walker, a trailer, and a few other things here and there as sort of a "parting gift" or something? Were you able to at least retain the customers you had going into this deal? Also are you back to using your original business name? I guess if thats all the case than you made out pretty good!You can PM me if you don't wanna post all that up here, I was just curious.

I love the new exhaust. The split went fine. I ended up with the walker and some irrigation parts. Looking for a compressor right now to do blowouts this fall. But yeah man, there was wno hard feelings. I'm back to my old name working solo and loving it

Thats good to hear. Seems like you had a good following built up with your original name so hopefully people still recognize it and the phone is still ringing!
