Cut exhaust tip so can't see it under rear bumper?

Would it be a big deal to cut the exhaust tip a bit short so you couldn't see it poking out from under the bumper? I plan on getting a dual exhaust setup with nice tips someday but for now I don't really care for the little rusted tubing that is poking its head out from under the bumper.

If so, what would be a good item to cut it with?

I cut mine when I first got my 6er a few years ago. I cut it like 3 inches and it burnt up the bumper a little bit. I would reccomend cutting it more like 10 inches. I used a saw lol took 1 hour

Thanks for the input. Will this affect emissions at all? If I remember correctly they didn't even stick the rod up my mustang. Just my old ranger I had before.

It shouldn't affect it, as long as you only cut off pipe and nothing else.

Ha OK I thought newer cars didn't get the "sniffer" but wasn't sure which year they stopped.
