What brand of stack kit is better?

Hi,

I've been doing research as to what brand of bed kit i should buy and am totally lost. I currently have 5" tips off a Kenworth, so i'm only after a bed kit.

I have been looking at "Silverline DSK000" and "Grandrocks DPU-5SK".


the the question here is, which stack kit is the one to buy? i need input from people who have dealt with these things or own them.

thanks.

I had silverline, comes with crappy clamps that I ended up replacing with wide band clamps and cleaned it up a lot, what you wanna make sure of tho is do your kenworth stacks go inside the base or slip on over the outside of the base, good luck.

I think they slip inside the tubing. i actually purchased them at a junk yard and they cut them off below the clamps. so i got a pair of clamps too the stack tips slipped "into" the swaged end of the exhaust tubing and was clamped. so i assume they will work with a standard 5" bed kit, but will check with the manufacturer once i get some input on what brand i ought to get. thanks for the input!

Honestly between silverline and grand rock its about the same, most have grand rock kause they are just a bit cheaper, but I'm pretty sure the silverline one is the one I had, and the stacks slip over the bed kit IIRC
