What size are the tips? Must be 3" or so no?

Its going to look awesome. To me it was one of the best things I did to my car before I sold it. Probably one of the easiest mods as well.

Jarrod, do you need any extra retainer clips or anything like that, or just cutting and it fits in snug?

Helped a buddy do his valance this weekend, he just needed some bolts/nuts at the corners. Still debating 12 axle back, or 13 and valance for mine.

One muffler and the valance showed up. Picked it up and found one tip was dented. So had to reorder a muffler. Still waiting on back ordered left too, though.

yup, Tousley ford stopped shipping the some time ago because ford did not pack them well.

Overall, it's definitely grabs attention with quad pipes. Thinking about doing this to my car over the winter.

second time going in to pick up "1" muffler as the other has been on backorder. First time in, one of the tips was dented. so i declined it. they reordered, i went in today and that one was dented as well. so now next week i should have both sides. really hoping they come in undamaged but losing hope.

+1 on all of this.

My drivers side tip on my GT500s was dented upon arrival from AM. They really do pack them like sh*t, with only some very minor bubble wrap on the tips. I didn't really see anything in the box that could have protected them sufficiently.

I'm planning on just trying to get the dent out myself with a vice or something or other.

Let me know if you guys find a better solution before I do it.
