Well with an OBS truck the biggest down pipe you can run is 3.5inch. Now unless your running alot of hp you do not need an exhuast bigger then 4inches. Now I ahve seen alot of OBS trucks with stacks. I think the best looking stacks on the OBS is aussie tryle angled out away from the cab but still pointing backwards. Now you can run stacks if you would like. But if you use your bed alot to haul things in. I would recommmend a straight pipe 4inch exhaust with a 3.5inch downpipe.

I'm leaning toward the stacks right now. Look in smkstax gallery hall. he has an obs with stacks. I'm sure theres others, I just cant recall off hand. farmboydiesel quoated me a a good price on 4"-5" stacks kit.

stacks look great on the obs trucks. id go with 6 inch mitre cuts with a 4 inch turbo back kit (will come with 3 inch down pipe). that would give you your best performance and killer sound.

So you mean that with the stock 3 1/2" exhaust pipe with a DP and no cat & muff is good enough?.
