Stack or not?

considering putting a single stack on my truck and I am trying to weigh out the pros and cons of it. I don't know anyone locally who has one (or two) so I can't have a listen or ask for an opinion. So, I'm asking you guys.

I guess the only "pro" would be that it looks kinda cool. Maybe I could just get some opinions on the drawbacks. Limiting use of bed? Bedliner melting? Cab noise? Rainwater(?).

Takes 8-9" off your bed length, no bedliner melting, cab noise?? get a honda if you're worried about that, rainwater is nothing to worry about.

I'm a hillbilly from Eastern KY and I even know that stacks belong on a tractor trailer, not a pickup truck. LoL!

You guys must be old...

If done right, there is nothing wrong with a stack/stacks.

Every mod is gonna have its pro/cons, supporters/those who don't.

As for the drawbacks to stacks:
1) If you're looking for a mellow exhaust, and cab-noise is a concern. Don't stack it.
2) You will lose 6-10" of bed space, depending on stack installed and the heat shielding.
3) Have a bed liner sprayed in, the plastic slide-in types will interfere with mounting.
4) Rainwater, though a concern, is easily handled with a small hole drilled at the base of the Y-pipe to 90* connection.
5) Be careful not to go too big / small with the stacks, 5-7" tend to look best and on a dually 8"s
The last thing I would advise, if you tow a trailer particularly, if you're running or plan to run a tuner, and it smokes. That diesel soot will cover your bed and the trailer.

I hope that's a little more helpful, I've been looking at stacks, but they don't fit the rest of my build. Keep us posted with what you decide, and how it turns out.
