I was told that they were on there so they could stack the frames at the factory.

Sounds feasible, also likely they were what located the frames on the conveyers during assembly.

Just a guess though, but yeah, I've almost evacuated blood from head with them before, too. Fortunately for me it was just a couple of dents. :doh: :lol:

That set up is pretty much like running straight open headers under throttle but just enough back-pressure to keep from burnin valves or allowing cold air to rush back up the pipes. Pretty loud but still fun.
They do get a lil bit quieter once your foot is outa the gas pedal.
The problem is no downpipe or anything behind them to evacuate the exhaust from under the truck. Plus exhaust is corrosive and when allowed to just blow around under a bed it tends to accelerate the rust out process.
Its also unsafe because while your sitting at a stop light or idling at a stand still the cab is being soaked in exhaust fumes which means your breathing it.
At the very least a set of turn downs or pipes just sticking out to the side is better than nothing.

Oh and yea, me thinks those are shipping pins too.
