Is this it???? So are you wanting to know because you want to copy me if it is or are you just curious?? Well I called DPS before we did it to find out how to make it legal and really all I basically got out of them is that it has to pass over the cab. Hence the reason my stack is so tall. I have been pulled over a few times for stupid stuff like licence plate light and crap but have yet to get a ticket so we will see I guess. I do have T & A on my side and you dont though so thats a risk you have to take if you are thinking about trying it. Good luck with the fabrication. It wasnt easy, but I guess you are a welder huh?? Let me know what you think about how it came out.

No not trying to copy you just curious and think its cool. I'm gonna go w/dual 6' stacks behind the cab when I finish building my welding bed for the truck. The stacks will go through the bed it should look good.

6' or 6" stacks?

I'll bet that stack through the hood is loud as heck inside.

I think welding beds look really good with stacks. Are you gonna do miter cut or bull haulers? Where have you seen me driving at? In corpus or in calallen?

Its actually not that loud. If you have ever ridden in a single cab with stacks in the bed, that is much louder than my truck is with the stack out of the hood. I thought it was gonna be awful but it really isnt much louder than when it was straight piped.

If you wanna cruise down the highway with the windows down it is a little loud for that though. But so are stacks in the bed. But smoke does not blow in the cab like you would think it would with the windows down. It all goes over the cab. Even when your driving slow.

I didnt want the flapper but then you take the risk of stuff getting in there and rain and I dont park in a garage. So better safe than sorry. My hubby is gonna make me another stack that is shorter without a flapper that way I can have it either way. It just screws on and off so its easy to change.

Going w/mitres because I think anything else would be in the way of other equipment on the truck.
