    That is ridiculous. I don't like stacks myself but those are way to tall.

    I knew it was a Cummings before I opened the thread.

    I bet he has a matching belt buckle.

    what I don't get is why put duals on a straight six...besides it looks cool that is.

    judging by the auxillary tank in the bed;)probably hauls cross country enclosed or travel trailers, taller stacks keep the smoke off the front of the trailers supposedly:confused: had a buddy that did the same thing with and to his truck:drinkup:

    Truck has to be about 7 foot tall. Stakes are give or take 3 feet taller. Can't fit through any kind of drive through or other low clearance garage. Not to mention looks foolish!

    nicksplowing's idea was probably correct.

    saw a 7.3 the other day with straight stacks like those only they were only a couple feet higher than the cab. Looked hideous.

    I would agree.The guy probably has them that high to go over the trailer so they don't leave black marks all over

    Would a normal tailpipe be the best option?

    If your towing a trailer a regular exhaust would leave soot on the trailer

    as far as im concerned, unless you need it to clear your trailer, the are only two ways to do stacks....
    1. duals with turn outs that only have about 2-3 inches of crome sticking above the cab.

    2. duals with the tops cut flat with crome flappers that face forward when up, and only the flaps stick above the cab.

    anything other than that i think just looks goofey, but that is just me. i HATE single stacks, especially when they arent to one side all the way, but kinda off center.

    i like symetry.lol

    That's a bit much... Mitered with the tip even with the top is the only way to go if you're doing stacks.

    @salopez: Helps lower egt's. That's not a twin turbo truck. I can almost guarentee it. Unless he's got the new setup from ATS to make it twin turbo. Also it sounds nice if done right :)

    i dont think there was enough room in the bed for a 5th wheel hitch. most trucks up here dont see long hauls it looked like a younger guy driving it i'm thinkin it was a "oh this will look cool" thing. no plow mount other.

    I don't doubt it sounds great...just looks silly. If I were going to do stacks....I would radius cut the outside of the bed and run them up the outside. Then you don't loose the bed space and is functional! Oh and then...no more then 2-3 inches of the cab and not some stupid 8" piping
