My 2016 lowered Express got rear ended at a stop light. Initial quote is close to 8k after they add for my sway bar. I have the factory dual exhaust bumper, thinking of seeing if I can swap this to the paintable bumper with no cutouts, and since my exhaust is fubared on the driver side switching to either a turned down, side exit rear or middle exit
Will the current passenger side hangers work for a single pipe cat back? Thanks

nothing stops you from just running your exhaust on more or less just the passenger side from the axle back

People are usually looking to add the dual cut-out bumper, but yes either bumper will fit. The available exhaust hanger locations are the same on both dual and single outlets.
Even an HD truck bumper will fit but the trailer 7-pin plug wiring needs to be moved.
