that would be kinda tough i'd imagine because of the drive shaft. you might have to run "true duals" meaning both sides of the truck will have a pipe. but don't take my word for it I've never ran a true dual setup.

another problem is the gas tank hangs right there on the drivers side inside the frame rail

Ive looked into doing this before as well, a few problems,
1: Drive shaft, You would have to run true duals, as stated before, Your also kinda screwed if you have the 2.3, (but you dont so your good)
2: Trans Cross member, the passenger side (side the exhaust belongs on) has a dip in the crossmember to allow the pipe to fit under the truck better, on the drivers side it does not, so the pipe would sit lower than the passenger side
3: fuel tank, self explanatory, i hope, right?


Its really not an option for us unfortunately, But you could do a dual out muffler to dual pipes on one side, Or be like me and get a huge ass tip for your side exhaust.
