Stacks - why are the kits designed teh way they are?

Title pretty much says it all, why do all the kits bring one pipe through the bed of the truck, then "T" into the two stacks? frame in the way under the bed?

It just seems to me that this design "wastes" a lot of bed space that it shouldn't have to.

I've seen one truck with T under the bed but in order to do this the T had to go under the frame rails and then cut two holes one for each side for the stacks looks better when looking in the bed but hangs under the frame and is noticeable from underneth

The gas tank is the biggest factor! And yes the frame would be in the way. you would have to route your pipe under the frame and it would stick out like a sore thumb. honestly (unless you have a 6 foot bed) the bed space lost isnt that bad.

It probably makes the install much easier as well. In the bed it is not a bad install at all.

I'd be more upset about losing that length in an 8' bed - already can't carry much in a 6'er

of course this raises another question - anyone tow a gooseneck or 5th wheel with stacks? clearance issues? and 6 or 8' bed?

I have my stacks, and a tool box and have had no problems pulling goosenecks with any of it.
