Could just be a chrome exhaust tip, even if it is welded on.

Check the muffler for branding.. plus your truck would sound louder if it was a full aftermarket exhaust- Id think youd notice.

Shoot, everybody knows chrome adds 10hp, flames add 15hp...

Seriously, it might change the sound of the exhaust a little, I know my big/long chrome tips gave my exhaust a little deeper tone.

It can change sound, but not performance. I know this from personal experience.

For some the cut of the end of the tip could keep the smoke and crap off your paint job...
