Dirt does not really get in the stacks. No power difference. You will probably see a little cooler temps for your EGTs, but other than that, looks and sound, it is the same.

With regular exhaust you can fill ricers windows with smoke. With stacks i am leary because of the jackasses that think its cool to put beer bottles etc. down them. I prefer regular exhaust for those reasons alone, although a set of miter cut stacks level with the cab look pretty bad ***.

I like the looks of stacks, but they aren't for me. I need my tool box to bad. If you drill a small hole at the bottom of the 90 the water will drain right out. Never thought of anybody putting stuff down them. Level with cab is a tough look!!!

+1 for stacks. I've had em for a while now and my only complaint is the water. It's never been enough to hurt anything but it'll blow black water out and all over the truck.

I have stacks on my truck and love them. Around my area I only see a few other trucks with them so it makes my truck stand out more. You will get some soot on your truck when the stacks get wet but very little. Other than that it is your personal preference.
