tragedy struck... Time for stacks, advice needed

S*** happens. it did Sunday night. I was driven down the interstate and it was gettin pretty bad out. Going down a big hill. A car in front of me gets side ways and over corrects. They sit broad side in my lane. I'm sliding on ice can't stop, so I get in the next lane to miss the car. A semi rear ens me, pushes me in to the guard rail, I spin back around hit the other guard rail, then the rear end slides around and hits the guard rail again. So long story short, 05 conversion is going on, and stacks. Since my exhaust now sits under my receiver hitch.


So I'm asking for pics of duallys with stacks, and the pros/cons.


Thanks

This is purly your opinion, lets please keep it to the "real" pro's and cons that actually matter. Its his truck and he can do what he wants without you criticizing him about it. Just my .02

my truck is in my sig, 8" stacks. I love them. They can be a bit noisy at times so I put dual electric cutoffs on the pipe so I can dump the exhaust under the truck if I want it quiet

Didn't really see a "pro" in that response, more like another opinion. lol CON- they take up bed space for hauling things- what trucks are made for.
