A DIY Truck Project You Can Do at Home
Recently we have all found ourselves stuck and bored at home more often than we’re used to. The pandemic has forced us to find new ways to pass the time and keep our hands busy. Most major project trucks are in a holding pattern due to expensive parts or valuable shop time, but that daily driver you have sitting out front could be a good place to focus some time and attention without massive expenses or days of downtime. The most common trucks on the road have tame and tone factory exhaust systems that can be easily unbolted and replaced in a few hours. Sure, it’s nice to have a lift on hand to speed the process up, but a few jack stands and some proper tools will get the job done in a single afternoon.
PPE Diesel is known worldwide for its high-quality diesel exhaust products, so when the company released a line of fully polished Cat-Back exhaust systems for Chevy and Ford gas trucks, we had to bolt one on to see how it sounded. The pipes came fully polished, which is impressive to say the least, and the packaging was designed very well to prevent damage during travel. We decided to bolt this kit to our ’17 Ford F-150, and we are very pleased with the results. The flashy finish is nice to show off, and the sound is deep and solid like most truck owners like. Check out PPE’s full line of exhaust systems online and be sure to scroll to the end of the page to hear the before and after and see the unboxing video! Now let’s get to the install!

This kit offers a mellow interior tone with an aggressive sound on the exterior. These easy-to-install 304 stainless steel exhaust kits use the factory hangers and clear your factory-mounted spare tire.
A single 3” inlet pipe splits into two, 2.5” over-axle tailpipes after the 304 stainless steel muffler containing reinforced internal baffles. The exhaust then exits the two large-diameter stainless steel tips.
Tips available in a ceramic coated black or polished finish. A fully-polished kit with brightly polished tubes, muffler and tips is also available. Kits come complete with hanger hardware, 304 stainless steel clamps and fasteners.
