    I have an 89 F-250 / 5.8 4x4 Reg Cab / long bed.
    I put an entire exhaust from cross over to tail pipes / O2 sensor /on it this weekend.
    My problem is how do the tail pipes end up?
    One on top of other or side by side?
    How far apart?
    Mine had one pipe system before.(5.0 system-CHEAP former owner)
    I drove around 100 miles and looked at at least 50 -F250's they all had one tail pipe! Mine has 2 -2 1/4 pipes
    WHAT IS IT SUPPOSED TO BE?

    I just purchased a 1993 F250 with a 5.8 in it. It has stock exhaust, which are side beside each other about 3.5" gap between them. Hope this helps.

    I would make them come out on each side of the truck right in front of the rear wheels. :nod:

    if your county has e-check be carefull putting the tail pipes infront of the back axle. they were like this on my old ford 87 and they wouldn't e-check them. no e check=no lisence plates where i live. also i have seen several with 2 smaller sized pipes run out the passenger side at 90 degree angles spaced 2-4" apart

    Thanks Guys

    Thanks for the all answers.
    I have the pipes exiting behind the pass side tire just like it's supposed to be.
    I just could not remember how they were to end up. Mine are side by side with about a 6 inch spread. I even took the muffler off and tried doing it on the ground with no axle to deal with. It came out the same each time.
    No biggie I just didn't want someone pointing out I made a big mistake after it was all clamped together.
