How far should my exhaust tip stick out?

Clearly, the exhaust tip is sticking too far out. Should the exhaust tip be lined up with the end of the bumper, the end of the exhaust cut out, or right in between?

    Is that an aftermarket exhaust tip?

    Photo angles can be deceiving. If you were standing with your leg against the bumper, would the tip contact your leg?

    Yes, it's aftermarket. It looks normal from behind. But, from above and the side, it looks far out ( it is past the bumper). When I run my leg against the bumper, it hits it if you walk too close to the bumper and could be a safety hazard. You could practically step on it if you wanted to. I'm thinking about making it only 1/4" past the exhaust cut out so the burn style is visible, but not sticking out PAST the bumper from all angles.

    Any tip that can graze your leg is too far out..

    Yes. That is the main reason I am moving it way back under the bumper.

    Here's the exhaust now. It's tucked under the bumper!
