I put a 4" turbo back w/ 6" SS tip from Farm Boy's Diesel on mine and I love it. I went with the aluminized kit since there is very little threat from road salt down here and I hardly ever go to the coast around the salt water. However, I did get 6" of snow last year. That was wierd for down here. Anyway, I love my exhaust but don't suggest installing the downpipe by yourself. That requires a lengthy vocabulary of imaginative words to install by yourself. After the downpipe installation, everything else is a breeze for a one man installation.

Stacks. or Just Stack.
pros.
Looks awesome if you like that kind of thing.
sounds really good (Especially the turbo echo)

cons.
Dumps right behind the cab, so its rather loud.
must cut yer bed and give up space in it for installation.
cant really smoke anyone properly since its straight up.
If you tow Horses at all with a bumper pull they get a snootfull every time you accelerate.
Rain is a concern if you dont put a flappercap on or 90o it.

MBRP 4"
Pros.
Sounds kick ***, with or without the muffler.
Dumps waaayy behind the truck so even without a muffler its not obtrusively noisy, and retains the nice turbo echo.
puts a nice sooty cloud right in the face of whatever idiot happens to be tailgating you irritatingly close.
Horses in bumper pulls dont suffer a snootfull of acceleration.
Rain is not a concern.
No cutting of anything or giving up bedspace to install.

Cons.

i had a magnaflow exhaust first.. it was cool but not loud enough.. i went to 6" miters and that was fun for about 2 weeks before i got tired of them.. now im back to just a straght pipe exhaust and like that the best....

if it were my truck just stick with a 4" TB straight pipe exhaust.... if you need any prices let me know
