The exhaust manifold exits are less than 2 1/4" so 3" pipes won't do much more than look good.
Straight shot back to the mufflers, one smooth gradual curve up and over the rear axle, then into a suitable low-pressure area behind the rear tires is very workable for 2 1/2" duals.
That will help 'pull' the exhaust outta the system - install a crossover between the pipes just behind the transmission support to prevent droning.
Dumping the pipes in front the rear axle will really help rustproof everything from there back, as all that soot begins to coat everything between the ground and the underside of the bed.
And that high-pressure area where road-draft hits the rear bumper will make sure that soot recirculates enough to create an interesting visual effect, as well as forming a centrifugal filter, hurling those heavy soot particles onto everything back there.
Two stacked air filters in a reworked housing and ducted to that hole in the passenger-side radiator bulkhead will ensure plenty of fresh, cool, higher pressure air rammed into the intake at any forward vehicle motion.
A little higher pressure at the front, a little lower pressure at the rear and ya got mild ram-air - remembering that you're only flowing around 350cfm at 3500rpm, every little bit helps.
