Single stack with a baby?

Well I have my first kid on the way in about 4 months and really want to run a single stack. I had one on my 2000 cummins and it was loud but the cummins in general was loud as hell. How does the 6.0 with a single stack sitting in the back seat sound? Is it just a drone or is it actually loud? I am torn on what to do cause I miss my stack but dont want it to be so bad the baby can sleep in the back.

Miters are louder than turnouts, or cat style stacks, or any style that directs the sound away.

I like miters for the look but hate them for blowing soot all over truck and it being white it shows bad. Im not sure how a single Cat stack would look. I love cat stacks as dual but never seen one as a single

On my old super duty, I had a miter cut stack then I went to dual turn outs. The turn outs were a whole lot quieter in the cab. I've seen the cat stacks as singles. Personally think they look pretty good. I had actually planned to put one of my old truck.

i had a 7" miter and it was flush with the cab. I could not keep the back of my truck clean and the roof always had black spots on it and in the bed was messed up hauled my dirt bike once and it was white before then black once i got there haha. I liked the way it sounded a lot but i think a baby would hate it. I got rid of it after a couple months but it did look good!!

Every truck I've ever been in that had a stack or stacks was pretty loud inside the cab... Or, loud enough that I think it would probably bother a baby... But, I will admit that I've not been around any 6.0's with stacks... so I probably haven't helped not one bit!

Well I have a 4in down pipe to a 5in exhaust to a single 8in Mitre cut stack that is right behind the passenger side rear seat. The noise is a little louder than my 5in exhaust was and at speeds in excess of 70 mph where the engine gets over 2k rpms, is where you start to notice the noise and it is mostly a louder drone. I installed it before my daughter was borne and from the time when she was a new born to about 3 months old we did A LOT of traveling (in the military) and it didnt bother her one bit. In fact I am convinced that it helped her sleep better due to the nice drone. JMO but I love my stack.

Haha, that is how I did when I was a baby. Dad said put me in the back of the roadrunner and the engine put me to sleep every time... Drone is good for sleeping lol but no fun driving or riding.

Put the stack on. Just make your woman ride or drive the truck a bunch so the little buddy is used to the sound and is ready for it when born!
