24". I mean seriously how do you get 24 out of 14?? I will say though that with the resonator removed the 24" doesn't sound bad at all. Not sure what I'm going to do though.

Make them fix it!!! That's what I would do! You paid for one thing, they should deliver.

Could have been an honest mistake/typo... but they should still make it right.

Well Let's hope so! The muffler you've got still sounds great, my father in law has it. I certainly wouldn't be too upset, but I like how loud mine is for sure!

Hey guys, so I haven't seen any reviews or much of anything on the AFE Rebel exhaust so I figured I would give it a shot. Almost pulled the trigger on the Gibson Metal Mulisha but got cold feet that it may be too loud. Plus I didn't like the giant tip and I wanted something a bit different. I stumbled on the AFE Rebel completely by accident just browsing pics of side exit exhaust systems and loved the look!

 

I got the polished tip version to match the small chrome accents on the truck but they have a black tip version too. Snagged it for $620 shipped directly from AFE and it shipped super fast, next day actually, and I had it within three. I must say this is a very high quality exhaust, all stainless, no "tuning" needed to get the pipes to fit together or anything. It came with band clamps and a new hanger mount for the rear. Installed in no time using a lift and I had no issues besides a minor leak from the slip connection going into the muffler but I doubled up on the clamps because I had an extra and it seems fine. The seal to the factory pipe is excellent but I did go ahead and buy a new clamp from the dealer first.

 

Sound is exactly what I was going for. Nice low rumble, pretty aggressive note but definitely not too loud. Its a very smooth quality sound with no rasp or harshness to it. Cold starts are mild, definitely not wake the neighbor loud if you are worried about that. Only downside is V4 drone is terrible. I immediately ordered a Range device after the first drive. In V8 mode its still quiet enough to have a conversation at normal volume but you can definitely still hear it cruising down the highway. Overall I am extremely happy and impressed with this exhaust - 100% would buy again. If you are looking for a mild-aggressive exhaust that has a deep tone and a different style exit check it out.

I've always loved side dump exhausts and almost did that with mine. I ended with dual rears but that looks like a really clean setup.

Drone (not talking about the V4 sound) came from equalizing the exhaust with a cross over pipe. Back in the day we ran true duals with no cross over. The sound was just a nice rumble. One large exhaust will help with drone.

Final product ended up being a 18" Magnaflow part #12259. Still not loud enough but the guy turned into a giant douche for his mistake and didn't have any 14" mufflers in stock. He blamed me and said I never told them what muffler to put on. I told them 3 times and even if they didn't know what to put on they should've asked instead of putting the biggest Magnaflow in the shop on the truck. The 18 " does sound better than the 24" for sure. However it still isn't loud enough for me!!!

Finally got a min to make a quick video of the aFe Rebel exhaust. Sorry for the bad quality, the gopro didn't work out sound wise so this is from my iphone on lunch real quick. Didn't come through as loud as it really is.
