In ct i know its not against the law out the back, the only thing you cant have is side exhaust, for fear of it entering the cab... I have never been pulled over, never had it mentioned to me, nothing. most cops wont notice where your exhaust is, i live next door to a state trooper, have had my exhaust on for close to 6 months and he just noticed it a few days ago! just my two cents

Uh, I think you better re-read the law, or ask your neighbor.
First, It only applies to SUV's not trucks.. or any vehicle that has a rear window that can be in an open position (not including rear sliding windows on PU cabs) while driving. For instance, a K5 blazer... and yes I have had exhaust shops offer to place exhaust out the rear.. as well as put on a system without a cat converter.. etc etc. Just because they will do it, does not make it legal. Side exit is not going to enter the cab.. the gases get displaced by the turbulance of the air moving past the tip of the pipe as the exhaust exits it..
Rear exhaust is not illegal, unless it's placed on the previosly mentioned SUV's. A PU can have rear, side, or rear and side if that floats your boat.
The reason no on has ever mentioned something like that to you is because there is nothing illegal your trucks set up... [img]images/graemlins/deal.gif[/img]
And that's my 2 cents
