Exclamation stacks not out of the bed

Has anyone here put stacks on their truck but went out the sides behind the cab, instead of through the bed? Does anyone have any insight pictures ect.? I've been considering it for a while now. I don't want to sacrifice my bed space since I use it so much. and with the toolbox in there and stacks I won't even be able to fit my quad in it.
any help would be great. Thanks.

I have seen it on a few dodges around here, but was not impressed.
If you want large diameter stacks to look good you risk losing your rear view.

A little off topic kinda, but I saw a chevy that had dual stacks, that were level with the sides of the bed and came up right in front of the tail gate. You don't see that everyday. The same day I saw a dodge with the exhaust coming out at the stock location, but then went up into about a 3 ft stack it was pretty wierd to say the least but I wasn't too shocked afterall he was drivin a dodge

Don't do it! Trust me I've seen some pics of trucks with the stacks outside of the bed and I'll tell ya that they are the stupidist things I've ever seen! I'll try to get some pics of them later. If you have a shortbed why not just leave the tailgate down and let the rear tires sit on there? Long beds should be no problem cuz the stacks are only going to take up 6" to 8" of bed space!

PLEASE I BEG OF YOU! DON'T DO IT!

I have a long bed. The thing is, I use the bed a lot, and with the toolbox my raptor sits in there perfectly. and i'm not looking for huge pipes just stacks. I don't think it'll ruin my visibility through my side views if they are close to the bed, but I can't know for certain unless they were there. I appreciate all your help guys. I find it's hard to pull off side-exit stacks. Some pics would be great.

Thumbs up Take a look

Take a look at the link in my siginature. They are only 4 inch but I am working toward upgrades since these were not expensive or perfect when I got them. Exhaust hangers, Y pipe and some elbows. I have a LWB, Dually CC and have had good luck with them.........good luck in whatever you choose to do. They do look better on duallys. I agree, on a single wheel, they might be too much.

that stack is for drag racing...don't wanna have stacks full time but doesn't want the smoke to screw up the timing lights...notice the big slicks...he's serious. stack goes up...smoke goes up...timing lights work...he gets ready to leave...takes goofy stack off and throws it in bed...then throws smoke into ricers' window. all good my friend.

I figured it was for racing, but it would draw a lot of attention on the street.

I can definately see what you guys are talking about thanks to dave's link. It's all up in the air at the moment.
Did you fab all that yourself dave? Or did you go through someone to get your parts?
