You can find most anything you want at a Truck Chrome Shop. If your is like mine it is Stainless Steel and all one piece from the muffler out.

I would have it replaced with SS to muffler!  Also, have the muffler looked at.  I would not cut the pipe off behind the hole, or cover hole with a SS extender and tip! JMHO.

Thanks.

Look underneath and see if it is clamped or welded together. If welded you can just cut it off with a hacksaw. Measure how long from the joint. Is it 3" or 4" diameter? 

I have seen some chrome tips in Walmart if they don't have them look for a place that sells parts for diesel trucks.

Or, just about any shop that has that diameter pipe can cut it and weld a new section on. Then add a tip.

I had a tip on my previous MH that started to show surface cracking and rust. I put a wire wheel to it then used 1500˚ flat black paint to paint it. Looked good. Nor shiny but didn't rust anymore. If you do get  section welded on use Rustoleum  High Temp paint to coat the welded area.
