Question Soot buildup

I have a muffler delete on my LLT and have noticed the rear end gets a lot of soot on it. As in I will wash the car, drive it once, then the rear looks like I have drove through a mud pit. Is this something common to the LLT, or would the lack of a muffler cause this? I didn't have the stock on long enough to make a comparison lol.

So would adding a MRT v1 or v2 help at all? It just seems like so much, even for a yellow car lol.

My tail pipes get so black & soot filled even after a short drive that the next time I start it up & the moisture starts to drip off the tail pipe, it looks like black paint dripping on the garage floor. Mufflers are not going to help with that.

The soot build up is a little annoying but it isn't too bad on mine. My tailpipes are pretty much black but I've never cleaned them ever haha I like the black look

That's convenient! Cleaning them is a PITA.
