Hey OBD! Nearly had to do just that, got rear-ended in Austin the weekend before Christmas. Totalled my tow hitch and dented my 6" duals I got under the rear. Took me 3 hrs to put her back together but still have dented pipes.

Why doesn't anyone like flappers anymore...I must just be old school (and old) cause I'm kinda fond of 'em. Well, looks like it's about split on 1 vs 2 stack look....how about 4?? lmao

My vote is for a single 6" mitercut at cab height positioned slightly to the right of the slider window. Simple 90 degree bend up into the bed when done that way. Flappers are just plain ugly and that sound they make when banging against the stack is annoying.

I like the dual stacks as far as looks go. But if you're pulling with it, you better go with a single, one less split in the pipe to create turbulance. The fewer the bends the better the flow.

I personally think stacks are silly looking 90 percent of the time....I digress.....

Anyhow, I would run a single 5" straight cut at the cab line out of the hood or in the bed. I just like a clean truck and big stacks belong on big rigs.....

Singles on streight 6. Duels on V-8s. How high do you want your smoke to go when pullin? Single 5" just right of back slider will blow the smoke the highest when pulling. The bigger you go the lower it will blow.

1 stack only, 2 out the hood would just look goofy. Those of you with stacks on your street truck should do everyone a favor and run them inside the cab, that way only you get to enjoy them. That way those of us that think stacks are for powerplants can stop laughing at your "Billy Big Rig'r" pick 'em up truck.

On a strictly pullin only truck do it right and run it out the hood if you really got a runner. Otherwise single stack thru the bed. On a street truck / daily driver I'm with Jfaulkner - leave stacks to the real trucks. Nothing I just LOVE to see more than a rusty, worn-out, been run ragged to the end of the earth and back truck with... You got it - Two huge shiny stripper poles sticking out of the bed. I'm sure some people will be offended but around here it seems like 70-80% of diesel pickups have stacks and unless its a really nice custom truck I am personally not a fan. To each his own I guess.
