    Carven 5" bolt on tips

    I have a problem. I haven't even taken delivery of the DDSRT yet and I have started accumulating parts. I've never liked chrome exhaust tips and from the countless hours of staring at the back end of the SRT's the exhaust tips size just seamed small to me. These are 5" black ceramic coated tips from Carven and are supposedly bolt on, so hopefully soon I'll be able to verify. At $230 they are far from cheap, but I just spent almost $70k on a vehicle and I got tired of repainting my last vehicles tips every so often so why not.

    I definitely will be checking out the 5" black tips from Carven.

    Why didn't you just use a little sandpaper and then apply a nice coat of Satin Black. It seems a shame to discard the nice standard stainless factory equipment.
    A lot of "youngsters" don't appreciate the excellent stainless exhaust systems that are now factory installed. In the old days, the whole system would be a pile of rusted crap in 2 or 3 years and the tips would look like shxx in 6 months. Now, the systems can last forever almost.

    By the way, I'm still waiting for delivery too.

    I hear what you're saying. My current truck has a cat back and I sanded and painted the tips satin black. I used about a whole can of Rust-Oleum Universal on just the tips. It's held up good for 4 years, so that was definitely something I was considering doing to the DDSRT.

    What made me buy these was I felt the stock 4" tips were just too small so these killed two birds with one stone.

    I tend to order all my vehicles because I'm so particular so I should be used to the wait, but for some reason this wait is the hardest.

    That was what I thought but it looks like the SRT tips are clamped on....and Carven advertises "no cutting." A bigger concern is that there is not much clearance with the 4" factory tips.....and those suckers will get hot.....I'd be concerned about heat damage to the bumper fascia. In any event....please post photos after the install.
