Just wondering how many contractors run duals on their trucks?

My new truck has a big block and 2 1/2" duals thru 12" glasspacks & 5" tips, she barks when I lay on the gas.

anybody think they are annoying?

Yes I think they are annoying for plowing, and I'm sure your customers don't appreciate it. I have dual exhaust on my F350 v10 but its more for looks than anything.

Duals

When the OEM exhaust goes bad, then I put Duals on :waving:

I can't see cutting off a good exhaust just to make it duals ;) but I'm older now :( You know older & wiser but when I was 18 I did take a new truck & put on headers & dual pipes-glasspacks but it also had dual straight bypass cut-outs :nono: & that's noisy.
 
Rabid garbage truck

4 inch downpipe,into 5 inch straight pipe out behind rear tires.No muffler.Neighbours run to put out the garbage when ever I pull onto my street. :)

Will be going to dual 5 inch stacks whenever I get my flatbed finished.Cummins will sound real nice barking through those.

Upstacks out the front, I would not recommend this for a plow
truck, but my truck is used in the fields in the summer.

Unless you have a diesel, exhaust has to be out the front or
they get into the wheat stubble and start fires.

A little noisy, and if you have the window down blow by comes
back at ya. Specially with the Dodge 440 under the hood!!

Looks pretty cool in the cold air though.

stock exhaust for now but when it wears out gonna go with smog legal headers, straight to the back with glass pacs in the middle somewhere, I have found that if you put the glass packs about 4 feet from the end with straight pipe out just past the bumper, you get the best sound and it doesnt kill your ears when runnin

My first plow truck had glasspacks. Yeah, it sounded cool, but 12 or 14 hours of plowing is tiring as it is. The extra noise for all those hours just makes it moreso...

Ive got an aluminized Edelbrock RPM series cat-back dual kit, and a custom cat-forward kit, including Flowtech A/B headers, much more power, removed the catatlytic converter (lack of emissions inpesction) and it sounds throaty, but not obnoxious.
The aluminized pipe is nice because it resists rust, i would have gotten stainless, but it was too expensive.

I like to hear the plow scraping across the pavement and nothing else.:D
I dont feel I need to announce my presence at 3 am when I'm doing a residential driveway. I just spent a few bucks to quiet down my truck.

I dont even have a working radio in my plow truck:eek:

That's another good point. I turn the radio down and roll down the window so I can hear the salt coming out of the spreader. It never had a spreader, but if it had I'm not sure I could have heard it so well on that old GMC.
