Changing stock exhaust tips?

I want to replace the factory tips with quad tips. Do the stock tips remove easily or are they welded on?

I’m at work so I don’t have the car with me and want to order them today.

Car is a 2018 RT 392

I have a 2012 RT. Is that also true about changing the stock exhaust tips? Is it easily done?

Are the tips clamp on?

I am offshore and can't look at my vehicle.

After you loosen the band clamp, you will probably need to give the tip a whack from behind to break it free. Over the years of being heat cycled, the ball and socket tend to become mated together. Also, I am not aware of any aftermarket exhaust tip designed to directly bolt-on to the larger 392 resonator ball without modification.

On my 2015 the clamp was tack welded to the resonator which made removing the tips more difficult then I anticipated. Loosening the clamp completely and bending it so it hinged off the weld did the trick.

Same here, tack welded to the resonator only. Really a pretty good design, but with no aftermarket support.

So what size is the pipe that the tips go on to?
I found these, I believe they are Flowmaster

Those look like the earlier version of Mopar’s quad tips, or possibly Magnaflow. The socket is too small to clamp around the 2.75” ball outlet on the 392 resonator.
