1995 Silverado exhaust

I have a 95 silverado short wheel base that ive put a 406 in and currently have open headers im ready to run my exhaust. I like to think outside the box ive had several of these trucks and i get tired of doing the same ol boring exhaust where the mufflers are side by side under the passenger side. I was thinking today would it be possible to run the exhaust down each side of the truck, going under the frame rail right behind the engine then hugging the outside of the frame rails with turn outs right in front of the back tires? I think
It would work with some round case mufflers like borlas. What do you guys think?

I have a 92 Chevy Silverado short wheel base sport side. It's got a 4.3 V6 that's very healthy. The issue is, it's very difficult to get it to sound good. Making a small block sound good is easy, but it's not for the V6.
So I knew I had to come up with a idea where I could make it sound good to cover up that dreaded V6 sound and here's what I came up with. Off the manifolds, and all the way back to over the axles it's just straight pipe.
In the spare tire well under the bed, have the pipes ran there, and into Turbo mufflers. This way, the mufflers are hidden. Both mufflers dump under the bed with no tail pipes which creates the echo effect, making it sound deeper and covering up the V6 sound. Where the mufflers would have originally been, simply add a X pipe there. I haven't put this into practice yet but I soon will be. In a way it's the best points of many systems put into practice. Many say the mufflers need to be far back as possible and like this they are.
Plus theres a place to install a X or a H pipe and it's easy to get to.
Since my truck has a bed cover, I keep the spare tire in the bed so it left the room under the rear of the bed to install the mufflers. I don't like tail pipes with chrome tips and why is because you got to constantly keep them clean and I'd rather not bother. This way that I laid out there's no tail pipes sticking out so nothing to clean plus it has the mufflers and pipe hidden so theres nothing sticking out from under the rear bumper so it has a clean look.

That sounds like a great idea i havent thought of that, so if i use 2 1/2 inch pipe an x-pipe where the mufflers usually are up over the rear axle then two borla xr1's you think it will have a unique sound vs other chevy trucks?

I certainly think so. Just about any muffler you use will sound unique. One thing about this is the echo chamber effect from the bed to the ground, it makes the mufflers sound far deeper than they really are.
