Why stainless?

I noticed a lot of y'all running 4" stainless... Why?
Also what kind of sound difference between 4" and 5" and galvanized and stainless?

Just my opinion but you will get a little louder tone the bigger the pipe you go. As for the stainless v's galvanized, the stainless will stay pretty with out rust for many years to come. The other will rust out pretty quick.

It will last forever, and 4" and 5" is about an inch in diameter. Galvanized will rust, and SS won't

If you get the aluminized ones you can always spray them. Really shouldn't get damaged too much unless you are driving over rocks all the time and they are hitting the underside, in which case your exhaust is probably not your biggest worry.

Well living here in Texas I don't have to worry about road salt or anything so I would expect aluminized or galvanized will be alright

Aluminzied is fine for TX and most southern states. Stainless is great for people in areas where they salt the roads or for those who plan on keeping their truck for the long haul. Most stainless kits come with a lifetime warranty.

T-409 SS will rust, just not very fast. This is what most of the aftermarket exhausts are made of.

T-304 SS will not rust. That is what the tips are made of.

I think there are a few companies out there that sell a full T-304 SS exhaust, but bring your checkbook

Silverline and the price wasn't too bad. Got mine from Summit and it came with a no interest finance deal
