Do the 2 door tahoe's have the same wheelbase as the short bed pick-ups? Many people tell me they are shorter. Also I am looking for a performance exaust for a 97 Tahoe that I just purchased, but I cant seem to find any listings on two doors. I want an exhaust that is noticable but not very loud. I did see that the truck already has duals up until the muffler. Any Ideas??? Thanks
I've been thinking about putting duals on my '97 pick-up for a long time. Same boat with two pipes and cats going into the muffler. A lot of people's advice is to find a good exhaust shop in your area and have an exhaust system custom made with mandrel bent tubing. I'm thinking Flowmaster 50 series mufflers with side exits right now if possible.
I may be able to help. It sounds like your '97 2 door is like my '99. I got the series 50 Flowmaster with dual 2.25" inlets and dual 2.25" outlets on the same muffler. Now your custom muffler shop can fabricate your duals. I chose sending them straight out the back. The sound is "beefy" but not loud. GM should have done this in the first place.
I've got a 2 door Yukon. I'm pretty sure it's got the shortest wheelbase of any full size GMs. I took mine to a local shop and had them put on a single 3" mandrel bent pipe with a Flowmaster and a side exit. It's got a good rumble at low RPMs and an aggressive roar when I step on it.
<font color=purple>The IFS 2-door Blazer/Yukons have a wheelbase around 112" (not sure exactly) which is longer than the old straight-axle Blazers (106.5"), but not as long as a shortbed/reg-cab (117"). The shortbed shares a wheelbase with the 4-door Tahoe/Yukon.</font color=purple>
