Straight single tip exhaust?

Thinking about cutting the exhaust tips off of my 3.0 to change them. However, I was thinking of just replacing them with single straight tips versus the dual straight tips that people usually change them to. Has anyone done a single straight tip? Looking to see if there are any pictures out there before doing it.

While searching on Amazon, I was a bit surprised that it was a bit tricky trying to find a set of tips that fits what I am looking for.

The truck is at the Docís office right now, so I canít take measurements. But I believe they are 3 1/2Ē. Pop the little plastic adapter out and measure it, or take it to an exhaust shop or any place that sells tips and fit it accordingly.

Ah ok. I see that your tips fit the circular opening almost perfectly, so that'll give me some reference for measurement. The single tips look good. Thanks for the pictures/info!

Youíre welcome! I went with single because it is consistent with my trim.

Sorry for the late response. I indeed have the single tips similar to what is pictured above, but plan to dual it out when I can find short enough tips.(custom exhaust that was basically squeezed in there) Doesn't look bad but just seems off to me.
