Exhaust opinions...

I'm debating between a 5" turbo back full exhaust, or running a single stack. Any pros or cons?

I think stacks are kind of cool, but a bit played out at this point.
Even if I didn't run a canopy, I wouldn't want to run stacks because I wouldn't sacrifice any bed space.
My buddy has a 5" straight piped 6.0 and it sounds unbelievably awesome

I agree here, stacks can be good looking if done right but personally i dont want to give up any more bed space. Just get yourself a turbo back system, 5" if money isn't an issue, to get a slightly deeper tone, or 4" if you're trying to save a buck. If you can get away with it in your state then straight pipe, you wont regret the sound

I have a 4" turbo back MBRP to dual 6" stacks. Some think they are played out, some don't. Whole reason I did dual chrome stacks is because they flow nice into my chrome bed rails. Looks good to they eye. I like them, loud, fun to blow some smoke out of. Never ran a full exhaust. But to each their own. As for those saying about bed space, I had a one off diamond plate heat shield made for the in bed Y, with the shield i lost 8". I can fit my can am in the bed with the tailgate down. It doesn't make that much difference.

Stack would sound pretty much the same with full exhaust, but much louder since it projects the sound upwards.

Stack is cool but you will get tired of how loud it is. My friend put stacks on his and he wishes he had done 5'' straight like mine. Personal opinion though for sure.

Well, I decided to go with the 4" turbo back to a 5" single stack. Sounds awesome!

I always kind of thought that the bigger diameter you go, the quieter it is, but the more tone you get. What's y'all's thoughts? Anyone who has gone from a 4" to a 5" turbo back?
