Default Swingset Pole Exhaust Mod

don't think i've shown you guys about this.
When i first got the truck, the exhaust was pieced together from all sorts of different vehicles, and was leaky as could be. My dad and i had a swingset pole in the garage, and figured why the hell not. theres a little piece of original exhaust attatched to the manifold, but from that to the muffler, its swingset pole. Now fo the pictures, go ahead and hate on me if you want tuff guys.

Setup when i bought it


New




My Dad welding the hangers to it

my poor ranger had a soup can adapter after the cat going to a piece of stright pipe that looked like a machine gun barrel that was tied up with copper wire with 20 loops over the axle, needless to say it went to the scrap metal pile and i bent put some 2 1/2 to a glasspack (for now) then bent a piece to go out right before the rear wheel, i need to run a full exhaust with a turbo or chambered muffler
