    So I have a 2015 toyota tundra crewmax with the toyota chrome tip, i got a different tip and i wanted to switch it, I took out all the clamps and everything so the tip slides around, its just it wont come off, as much as i yank it it just wont come off, its because the pipes gets bigger at the end and as much as i yank it, it wont come off , i even tried wd-40, what should i do?

    I added the chrome tip on mine, it didn't come stock but it should be the same. It uses steel pieces to act as spacers to clamp on to the smaller OD part of the exhaust because it has to slide over the bigger OD at the tip. My guess is these spacers have become rusted together. You might want to try a penetrating oil like PB Blaster. Let that sit for an hour or so then try breaking it lose with a few light taps with a hammer. Might work for you. Good luck and welcome to the site!

    Just read my post. When I say my guess is the spacers have become rusted together, I mean the spacer has rusted to the exhaust tip. Hope that makes sense.

    Ok so the tip is probably oblonged from being clamped on. I think your just going to have to pry open the end while trying to slide it off at the same time. Sorry, other than that I can't think of anything else that doesn't involve a sawzall.

    I can't believe your having such a hard time getting it off. I couldn't imagine having to go to a mechanic to get that off but if you don't have the tools to get it done, I guess you don't have much of a choice. I'll probably find myself I this predicament one day when I ditch my chrome.

    Haha yeah, i see you a 15 tundra too, I have one too but i completly blacked it out and just the chrome exhaust tip was ruining it, and I have a super 44 muffler and the tip just got all messed up so I got a black tip that looks badass

    Hey prowolf1, got any pics. Would definitely try to help you before taking it to a shop and spending unnecessary money.

    I'll have pics soon but currently i can explain, It's basically a chrome tip , it was tightened down with a clamp, and inside the tip at the end had these two steel bars, i took those out, i took off the clamp, the tip moves around, goes up and down, left to right, it just wont come off cause of the piping it gets bigger at the end, as much as i yank it, it wont come off its just stuck in there

    If you're going to scrap the old one anyways I say take a grinder with a cutoff wheel to it.

    Yes, it's the same thing I will have to do other than I don't have a tip. The tailpipe transitions to a bigger diameter at the last 3" or so. You will have to cut directly behind tip and remove it. Reinstall new tip. If your gonna take out more pipe than you want, then you will have to cut your present tip off pipe, saving some length. You can rent a sawzaw from homecheapo. I will have to cut that transition on my pipe when I put a custom tip on my truck. Hope this helps

    I didnt have a tip to start with but I ended up cutting off the flared portion and installing my black tip on the smaller part.

    Yep. So after an hour of beating the piss out of mine and using crow bars, ball joint removers and a BFScrewdriver...I finally got it off. Jaheeeeeesus!!! I may be able to salvage it after painting. Will have to see

    So was that the main issue? The part that the clamp goes around is needs to be pried open? I'm having the same problem

    No. The issue is that the actually exhaust pipe widens significantly at the last three inches (that's what he said)

    I'm thinking the ONLY way they got that piece on was coming from the upside pipe behind the muffler. The clamp and associated spacer pieces have nothing to do with it.

    Crap. I was hoping to remove mine to get it powder coated and reuse it.

    Got it painted and back on. Needed 4" wide channel locks, a mallet and a whole lot of patience.

    Recommendations? Paint that shit with it on the truck!!!! :thumbsup:

    Edit: oh and unneeded to grind down the inside of the back of the tip to get it on smoothly...likely due to the fact I jacked it up bad taking it off and created bends and burrs

    I bought a used one and had the same problem trying to get it on. Imfrickenpossible. So I cut off the pipe where it gets wider and it fit perfectly.

    Here's a pic. I cut it right where it gets wider. If you're removing it, I would loosen the bolts and move it out as far out as possible before cutting it. Or maybe even try shoving it the other way so you can cut the pipe and keep it as long as possible. Not sure if this is the best way, but it was the only way I could come up with.
