    I finally got tired of dislocating and bending my exhaust backing over piles. It was fine until my shop took the tailpipe out of the hanger when replacing my brake lines. Since then it's come out 3 or 4 times, even after heating it up and getting it back in the hanger nicely. That long piece running behind the rear wheel just provides too much leverage and I can't be worrying about whether the pile I'm backing over is too big. I think there's enough angle left to it that I won't stuff it with snow.

    I think the only concern would be if you have a cap or camper on the back you could get some exhaust in there but it's not an issue for me.
