I went with a 48" long 5"-6" stack with a 5" elbow, I just used a 4"-5" reducer at the elbow and have 4" all the way to the turbo. With the way it's all setup, the very tip of the stack is just below the cab line. I pieced mine together myself though, I can't really say what kit is better price wise.

Here is the only pic I could find of the entire stack. This was right after I got done bolting everything up. The 5" part of the stack sits just below the bed, is clamped to a 5" elbow, which was off a salvaged Freightliner, and then clamped to a 4" reducer. I can get pics of the actual setup underneath for you tomorrow if you would like.



Here are some different setups....
