Just wanted to let you guys know about a pvc bender we bought a couple months ago that works off the exhaust of my truck.I simply heat the pvc and just throw it in the ditch.(its like a rubber hose)It just follows the contour of the ditch. This has turned out to be our best investment, so far this year.

Great forum. Thought I would jump in.

Welcome to the forum Sparky.

Sounds interesting, it also sounds like advertising.

If it is please show us the respect to come clean about it.

Larry this product is advertised in the classifieds. type PVC in the search window.

Sparkyspup, I second the welcome, but as Iwire mentioned, be careful of pushing a product if it is advertising

On old work trucks before catalytic convertors we used to slip a piece of 1 1/4 EMT in or over the tailpipe to bend 3/4 and 1" pvc. Worked great. But new trucks seem to run too cool to make it work anymore.

Rev it up a little. Turn up the A/C.
At idle these things have to meet another EPA standard and they don't waste much heat (fuel, emissions etc). Get those injectors squirting and that exhaust will heat up.

The only thing missing from that ad is "Set it and forget it".
