Opinions on Stacks

Aluminum stacks. Whats ya'lls opinion. It's only going to be the stacks the rest of the pipe would be either stainless or aluminized steel. I'm not really wanting a lot of shine on this truck like you get with chrome but on the same token I don't want them to just blend in as evening falls or being hard to see with whatever is in the background. I'm thinking of going with a brushed or satin finish something just enough to get noticed. Straight cut with raincaps just because I don't see a lot of those kind of pipes.

You can get stainless in a brushed or satin finish too. Aluminum will oxidize over time. If you find polished stainless just use a DA sander on it and it will give you a much duller brushed look and the finished look will last much longer than aluminum.

Aluminum is not going to be nice to deal with in time. Go with a brushed stainless steel. It will have the satin look you are wanting and will stay the same for many years to come.

+1 on stay away from aluminized for the parts of the exhaust that will be seen by others

I used aluminum from the down pipe all the way to both stacks. They are no problem to keep looking good.
