Justin: You should be checking out the MBRP XP series if you are in the market for a full stainless dual side exit cat-back for your 2014 and newer 6.4 gas-powered RAM, you'd like a good amount of volume and, ultimately, would prefer to keep things as budget-friendly as possible.Now, the price point for the full stainless system will live in that low $800 range. And the install, according to the site's, gonna get a middle-of-the-road two out of three wrenches on the old difficulty meter here, take a couple of hours or so to knock out from start to finish, as we'll show you guys later in the video.But since this is an exhaust video, after all, let's get into what you guys are all here for. And that, of course, is sound and volume. Now, on that volume topic, I have the XP series coming in at a strong three out of five on my one to five or one to wake-the-neighbor scale here, guys. Definitely plenty of bark coming out of the system and fitting for a big V8-powered truck. Now, the sound profile with the XP system...listen, I have no complaints, you're getting plenty of bark when you're on the loud pedal, at least from the outside, but still relatively quiet and mild on the inside of the truck while cruising.Now, if I did have any complaints here with the system, is that noise on the inside, at least the drone, is extremely minor but it is present. I do wanna point that out. However, I would say most owners of the 64-powered RAMs probably aren't gonna mind because the system does sound just so darn good.But, switching gears, I do wanna quickly mention MBRP's approach to exhaust here on the site, guys, because it is pretty impressive. Now, the lineup is extremely vast, especially when it comes to the truck offerings here on the site, because you are getting basically something for everyone in the land of configuration. They got their dual, rear side exit, like this kit, dual side exit, dual rear exit, single side exit. Black, silver. Different materials, different diameters. You get the point, right? Basically, MBRP has something for everybody and every budget, it just really comes down to what you are after and, ultimately, how much you wanna spend.Now, as far as your construction or system breakdown here with the XP series, guys, listen, you can expect this to fall right between MBRP's installer series on the entry-level side of things and then the pro series Cat-Back, which is the company's top-shelf option.Now, the major difference between all of these different kits is the materials used. For instance, the XP series, again, on the table today, is gonna utilize that 409-grade stainless-steel material. Generally, a middle-of-the-road material, if you will, between that aluminized steel on the lower side and then again the 304-grade stainless on the high side. Now, with all that being said, 409 still a solid stainless-steel material and does get backed by MBRP's lifetime warranty.But aside from materials, let's talk about what else you can expect here with this cat-back. And again, this is their 4-inch offering, meaning you're getting that 4-inch mandrel bent tubing throughout all exiting out these massive 5-inch tips.Now, this kit does include MBRP's straight through stainless-steel bullet-style muffler, which will, obviously, increase your airflow overall compared to your stock muffler and will allow for that rumble we all heard at the top of the video.Now, overall, guys, those tips have been made from 304-grade stainless, by the way, that is that premium material, it's the lone 304 of the system, everything else is 409. And then those tips will exit out of both sides of the rear of the truck right behind those rear tires. I always think that's a great truck configuration, if you will. Looks awesome and certainly far better than the wimpy factory single-side exit system.Now, as far as your installation is concerned, well, the good thing here is, guys, no cutting needed whatsoever. This is a 100% bolt-on job. But to give you a better idea of just how things will go down on your RAM at home, check out our detailed walkthrough and tool breakdown.Man: Tools required for this install include an impact driver, a ratchet, an exhaust hanger remover, a 14-millimeter wrench, a 15-millimeter deep socket, a 14 and a 10-millimeter socket, an 8-millimeter Allen, a pair of safety glasses, and a pry bar.What's up, guys. Today, we're gonna be installing an exhaust on our 2017 RAM 2500. So, our first step is gonna be to remove our hangers. So, let's get right to it.All right, so, we have to remove this exhaust hanger up here first. It's a little tight up there, so, it's hard to get an exhaust hanger tool in there. So, we're gonna go ahead and use a pry bar. And we can kind of just go ahead and work either side back and forth. Right? And just like that our hanger's free.All right, so, our next step's gonna be to remove our clamp. It might be a good time to grab some safety glasses. When you take these off, rust tends to fly everywhere. So, I got my 15-millimeter socket on an impact gun, I'm gonna go ahead and remove it. All right. Now we can go to the backside and start to wiggle out this tailpipe. I find it easier to bang on the edge of the muffler here with a little rubber mallet.Okay. So, we have two hangers on the back side of the larger muffler and then one hanger on the front and our clamp. So, we'll undo our first hanger, undo our clamp, and then we can slide it out of the back two hangers. All right, now with our clamp loose we can go ahead and slide this muffler out.All right, so, we were able to slide our hanger out on this side but this side's a little tighter, so, I'm gonna get in there with our remover tool. And now we can go ahead and pull straight back.All right, so, our last step is gonna be to remove our final exhaust hanger, remove our clamp, and then we can slide this pipe out.All right. So, now that we have our stock exhaust uninstalled, we can go ahead and lower our spare tire. So, you get a little tool kit, it's usually tucked under the back seat of the truck. So, you've got these little poles, we've got these tabs. Push in, they click into these holes. And then we can use our tire iron, slide it through here with this pin again. And now we're gonna be looking into this small little access hole. This square tip's gonna to meet up on the inside, and then we can turn to the left and lower our tire.All right, so, now we can go into that access hole, kind of add it downward into the left angle...and then, when we connect our pole, we twist the left and lower our tire.Then, once we have some slack on our tire, we can go ahead and fish out our mount. And just like that, our spare tire's out. All right, so, our next step is to remove these three bolts holding this tire heat shield on. So, I'll use a 10-millimeter socket and get these out.All right. So, now that we have our three bolts removed, we can go ahead and install our bolt and our big washer. Pull back on that heat shield and it'll slide through the large hole. And then we can come back on the other side with another large washer. And then our hanger. And then we'll use our small washer. Our lock washer. And our nut. And then we can loosely secure this with a 14-millimeter wrench and 14-millimeter socket. And then we can repeat that same process on the other side.All right. So, now coming back to our spare-tire holder, we have this heat shield, there's gonna be 2 more 10-millimeter bolts back here holding it in. And we can fully remove that. All right, with our heat shield out, we can move on to our next step.All right. So, our next step is to take our extender pipe. Now, there's gonna be a little notch on the top of here that this little cutout slides into, it's gonna help properly align the exhaust. Just make sure you slide it in there. And then we can take our exhaust clamp with the hanger, slide it over, and then into our hanger here. And then we can tighten that down with a 15-millimeter socket. And now we can move on to our next step.All right, so, now we can go ahead and install our muffler. So, we're gonna take a 3.5-inch clamp, slide it over the edge. And now we can slide our muffler into place. And then we can come in with a 15-millimeter socket, and we'll leave it a little loose so that we can adjust at the end.All right. So, next we can install our over-axle pipe. So, we can take another 3.5-inch clamp, slide it over the other side of our muffler, and then we can slide our pipe into place and get it into the hangers. And now we can snug down our clamp a little bit loose with our 15-millimeter just like our last one. All right, now we can move on to our next step.All right, so, now we can go ahead and install our Y-pipe. So, we can take our 4-inch clamp, slide that over. And now we can move on to our tailpipes.All right, so, now we can install our driver-side tailpipe. So, we'll take another 4-inch clamp, slide it over, and then we can connect it up and slide it into our hanger. And now we can go back with our 15-millimeter socket and get this clamp loosely fitted. And now we can move on to our passenger.So, now we'll just do the same thing on the passenger side. Take our 4-inch clamp, slide it over, get our pipe into place, and slide it into our hanger. And now we can move on to our tips.All right. So, now we can install our tips. So, these will just slide over, and you can adjust these to however you like, have a lot of poke, bring it back in for something less aggressive. I like to have that little bit of poke, so, I'll leave it about there. And then we can take our 8-millimeter Allen and snug this up. And we can do the same thing on the other side.All right, so, now our last step is to get the exhaust in a position we like and then tighten down all the clamps. And that'll wrap up this install.So, that'll wrap up this review and install of the MBRP 4-inch XP series dual-exhaust system with polished tips and side exit for your 2014 to 2022 6.4-liter RAM 2500.

Aggressive and Throaty Roar. For a RAM 2500 that sounds as impressive as it looks, upgrade with this MBRP 4-Inch XP Series Side Exit Dual Exhaust System. It provides your truck with a more aggressive roar compared to the more subdued factory exhaust sound. In addition, the high-flow mufflers and mandrel-bent tubes ensure excellent airflow. They help maintain optimal operating temperatures, provide a boost in torque and horsepower, and enhance efficiency.
Boosts Torque and Horsepower. This exhaust system is designed specifically to boost your truck’s performance. The free-flowing design of the mufflers minimizes backpressure, which in turn minimizes emissions and improves fuel consumption. The optimized airflow also enhances your RAM's torque and horsepower output. Even your truck’s engine roar will experience an improvement, with an attention-catching roar, minus annoying drones and noises.

The smooth exhaust flow also helps keep your truck operating at cooler temperatures.
Lustrous Polished Finish. This exhaust system has been polished to a high-shine to enhance its appearance and corrosion resistance. The polishing process also removes the surface impurities to slow down the effects of wear-and-tear. The 3.50-inch muffler tips are also polished to a high shine, giving your truck a sleek and clean look.
Straightforward Installation. This exhaust system doesn’t need any cutting or welding. It’s designed for a 100% bolt-on installation using basic hand tools. Note that you will need to use a lift or a jack and jack stands. Installation can take about 2 hours.
