Yes you can still take the dog for a ride. You can carry a four wheeler without worry. If you have plastic soda or water bottles in the bed they will end up by the pipe and melt.

Only worry I have is taking dog for a ride in bed of your truck. Even if he doesn't get burnt by the stack there are too many other things that I have seen or saw pics of. May never happen to your dog, but please consider your dog's safety, his skin isn't made to slide down the road at 55 mph. And you will never forget the look. Thanks, Skip

I misshaped the front tires on my fourwheeler with my stacks, so i built ramps that bring the bike up and over the y-pipe in my bed and i have had no problems since. I did melt an ice bag to them and boy was i mad. Good luck

How about fabbing up some guards around the pipes that cover them inside the bed. Some cheap wire mesh would be good...and still let air get around the pipe to cool the surface.
