Stacks or regular pipe?

Before I had the stacks. I was running 5 inch straight pipe and 6 inch tip. So I found a good deal on 6 inch stacks. I bought stacks for only $75. So I bought it and installed. But sometime I miss having my old set up. Reason why I went with stacks because the look and sound. I just want to see what kind of feedback or opinion I will get. So feel free comment your opinion. I have thought about selling the stacks and go back to old set up but this time I think I might want the tip little bigger. Maybe 7 or 8 inch tip. Feel free share your thoughts. Thanks!

I personally hate stacks. I really do. I'd say 5" all day, and the only reason you get that bigger tip is to spread smoke better. I'm at 4" and 5" tip. I may go to a 6" tip after I get my chip.

Not a big stack fan, but they do look good on some trucks. Now what I would HATE would be to have holes in my bed... and no stacks. I've been toying with the idea of putting stacks on the bottom as side pipes. Ewe... 70s... probably won't, (never know) I just hate to give up my ground clearance.

Thanks for the opinion. If I change my mind go back to regular exhaust. I'm not really worry about the hole in the bed. I got tool box that can cover the hole. I used to have 5 inch straight pipe with 6 inch tip. I'm thinking maybe go with 7 or 8 inch tip. What u guys think?

I think stacks are trashy... They dirty up the truck, they don't do anything for performance, they take up bed space, and while they're louder inside the cab, they're quieter outside the truck.

go 4 or 5" straight, no tip

If you went with a 7 or 8 inch tip what size pipe would you use?

I have never put an exhaust tip on any of the 17 diesel trucks I've owned. I'm not a ricer
