You can bolt them on. They are meant to be bolted. You would just have the shop cut off the stock tips and leave an inch or so of piping coming out of the muffler. The new tips will go ontop and would be tightened using the bolts. You will need an adapter since those tips are 2.5ID and the stock piping is 2.25, but yes you can bolt them. It’s just better to have them weld or maybe hit them with some tacks to keep them in place.
Hey you got any more pics of the Pypes tips installed? I’ve had those Redtail 4” tips for almost a year and haven’t had them installed yet. I’m thinking 4.5” is the way to go instead.

The original tips sit too far back, which is the main reason I wanted to change them. If you measure from the muffler to the bumper (flush), you get 7-7.5 inches. If you find a 2.25 inlet exhaust tip that is 7 inches long, you will sit perfectly flush with the cutout of the bumper.
I found 2.5 inlet ones 4 inch wide and 6 long (APR brand), added an adapter and for brought them flush with the bumper. They don’t stick out at all.
The best 4.5 inch ones are Pypes, which were posted earlier in the forum. I painted the adapters and clamps, and had them clamped on and through some tacks on there as well so they are more secure.
The 4.5 would fit the cutout perfectly, so I would just go with the Pypes brand ones which are like $80 for both. The cool thing about the APR ones is that they are black chrome.
