Here is a picture of the side view and one from the back to help you get an idea of what you may be looking for. I may change mine to a bigger tip at some point but I like the size of these right now.

Nice.. did you add these yourself or is that standard on your Range? I was hoping to buy tips and just connect without any cutting or modification. Also, what brand calipers do you have on your vehicle? They are nice.

I added them. There is no way around cutting them if you want to add straight tips. You can take it to any muffler/exhaust shop and they can do it for around 25.00 in labor.

They are the factory calipers. I just sprayed them with caliper paint.

Here are some pics from my 06 HSE that had a Magnaflow aftermarket exhaust system. It wasn't too loud but it really changed the appearance of the car. It may be more than you're looking to spend but just thought I'd throw these pics out for you.

Pretty sure this is the same exhaust but with different tips:

Nice.. thats definitely more than I was looking to spend but I really like the upgrade. Where exactly did you get the Nerf bars that are on the sides of the truck? Were they easy to install?

I will check with muffler shops today. What type of caliper paint did you use on your calipers and did you take them off or paint while on the Range?

I took them off. It's pretty quick to remove the pads and take out the caliper bolts. I used VHT Caliper Paint from Advance Auto Parts.


Make sure you sand them really good, primer, and then spray and then clear coat if you'd like. I did 7 coats on each caliper, probably overkill but at least it will last a long time.

7 coats? lol.. I will probably do the same since this will be my first time trying this, just to be sure all is covered. Is that about a can of paint per caliper?

No. I only used 1 and a half cans. Calipers don't take a lot of paint because they have a small surface area to cover.
