Banks Dual Exhaust

Has anyone installed the Banks Monster Diesel Dual exhaust on their truck? I was interested in doing it to my truck but I noticed that unlike the other exhaust systems they offer, it removes the factory muffler and doesn't replace it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't that make it pretty damn loud without a muffler?

Most DPF back exhaust kits will delete the factory muffler as it is not needed. There is very little difference, if any, with the factory muffler removed. The restriction and sound muffling is done in the DPF. That being said, the Banks kits look great.

Well that's good to hear. Banks is having a 20% off and free shipping for Veterans today, I'm tempted to go for it, I just don't want a loud truck. I know some guys are all about the loud manly exhaust, not me, I prefer it quiet as I'm cruisin' down the road. Thanks for the input. Daron.

Well disregard all. I just called Banks, and it wasn't designed for a dually, I would have to have it modified to get the exhaust port to stick out past the dually fenders so that it won't get burned. Sucks.

they dont know what they are talking about then. the bed width at the back is the same as a pickup. how are they gonna advertise there cool cuff and say its gonna burn the bed. the dually fender doesnt go all the way back if i remember correctly. here is a pic of the dual side exit on a 08-10 dually with the big dually fenders and you can see the clearance it has. just an idea for ya. the duals look sick on duallys!

Yah they don't seem to have very product knowledgeable staff at Banks customer service. I was told by one guy that the pickup dual exhaust would fit my Excursion. I called back a few weeks later to order it and that guy said there is absolutely no way a dual exhaust would fit and that I must have "heard" the first guy wrong. Yah right.

I hear ya guys, and I feel the way you do. From what he was explaining, the Banks kit exits on a SRW right smack dab where the bulk of the dually fender flare sits, causing it to be right underneath and not protruding all the way past a dew model. I agree with you, and I have my doubts on his knowledge of his own product, it wouldn't be the first time I have had incompetence like that from a company. I will do some more research, that is why I was hoping to find someone who put that EXACT same dual side exit kit on their truck to see without a doubt what it will or will not do. Thank you gentlemen.
