Mitre Question

For those with stacks. Do you have a lot of problems with sooty moisture drops getting all over the truck when you crank up in the morning? My truck is white and Im trying to decide if I need Mitre's or Turnouts.

only have soot when it rains, water sticks to the inside of the stack and when it's fired up black flakes float out... not that big of a deal, but if you want to avoid this i'd go with turnouts

Does it stick to the truck? Is it hard to clean off?

if you pull a camper of any sort and its white standby cause it sucks to clean off once it dries and you forget about it. i pull my travel trailer in teh rain and boy was teh front of that thing nasty. i just put a small pin hole in teh elbow of the up pipe coming into the bed so teh water drains out.

I have the 3/16 hole in the bottom of the 90 degree bend and I still get the black stuff over the back of my rig with my mitres, and I live in Arizona!!! It washes off pretty easily, but like the guys say if you tow a camper with it or are really that concerned with soot on the paint go with the turnouts
