    3" - 3.5" is a good size. I personally wouldn't go bigger. I recall looking for these before, and I did manage to find just the tailpipes from the rear muffler flange-back. IIRC it was either on the Jeggs or Summit site, and they were either Mac or Flowmaster tailpipes. They weren't exactly cheap though. You can always get a muffler shop to weld-on some chrome tips onto your existing pipes for rather low cost, Aaron did something like that on his car.

    i had 3" stainless tips on mine. total price was something like $60 or so welded on. thinking they were 18" long or so...you couldnt tell they were just tips unless you crawled under the car. at one time i had 3.5" tips, those looked too big imo.


    edit- i got mine at my local muffler shop. i think they were $25 each for the 3" stainless...and $10 to weld them on. don't get the ones you find at autozone/advance because they suck, and they are clamp on. get ones that weld on!

    i was auctually looking for full 3" i dont really care for the look of tips a guy down the road has a 95 w/ 3.5 and i think it looks really bad lol.....he has the 4x4 stance though and i will be putting on sportlines in the spring....so that would hide the tips but it would still bother me because i know what it is lol

    the kit i ordered has the stainless 2.5" :nice: i was just noticeing everyone saying that 3" looked better and i got concerened that mine would be to small..but i guess there is no sense in scraping brand new 2.5" stainless i will throw them on and if im unhappy i will go from there...
