Stacks vs. Straight pipe

I was wanting to take the factory exhaust off my truck, and was thinking about stacks. But i wasn't sure about the sound in the cab, or will it be annoying loud? I'm not sure which route i want to go. I drive the truck everyday about 90 miles round trip, that's why i was curious. I want it louder and a straight pipe will be fine for me, i just kinda want stacks for there sweet look

Stock straight pipe doesnt sound to bad. If you want some real noise go with a 5'' TB kit into some 7" whatevers

Its all personal opionion some think these trucks are plenty loud with stacks, others it doesnt bother

Was it a nice sound or does it get annoying after a while? Like those damn dodges get?

See that is what i am curious about is the drone in the cab at crusin speeds i try to run about 60-70 all of the time. My old truck had a 4 inch straight pipe, it sounded sweet outside and wasn't very noticeable in the cab.

I run a 4" stright pipe on mine. It's louder at 55ish than 60+. Not close to being to loud, but nice and throaty when your down on it.....it's no louder at cruse and a titan with stock exhaust.
