opinion on stacks vs no stack

I'm tossing around the idea of putting a single stack on my 99 reg cab. I'm thinking about a 6 inch black or black chrome mitre cut about in the middle of the passenger seat. Also thinking about leaving the stock exhaust with a muffler delete. What are your guys thoughts on this? All opinions will be considered. In the near future I'll be installing gauges and a 6 position chip if that helps. Thanks

I just took my stacks out, loved the look but me having a short bed they definitely got in my way on several occasions. They are also fairly loud, it's cool at first but it eventually becomes annoying, I thought I would worry about the hole in the bed but I just went for it and cut it and it didn't affect me at all. To patch it I just took a piece of steel and sprayed it with duplicoler bed liner and used self tapping screws and screwed it down, only telling you that so the hole won't discourage you. Single stacks look bad *** IMO, if it's something you like the look of go for it, just helping weigh the pros and cons. Also if you do it make sure you rig up a heat shield of some kind, something will melt to that thing faster than you can say dammit I just melted something to my stack.


What would I be doing right now if I didn't have an iPhone?

Stacks are cool in certain trucks depending on the style. I've ridden in a few trucks with em and I know the drone would get old as funk after a while....but there's nothin like the sound of a straight piped 7three. I vote muffler delete!

What do you mean make a mess? I was planning on adding a stack soon and have a white truck.

Get ready to wash it every other day the soot goes everywhere get caught at wal mart and let it rain for five mins while you inside shopping and when you start it up there you go a " mess". I carry a roll of alluminum foil around with me to cover it when I stop I need to find a lil metal bucket

Personally I love the look and sound of stacks. It seems lately everyone is cutting up guys running stacks, when two years ago "everyone was doing it". My only reasoning for not stacking it is I use my bed often and with the box in there I think it will look dumb pusing the tool box back 6+ inches. The soot issue bothers me too. However to be different I debated going dual 4" with pop tops. I love the "ting ting ting" at idle of the poppers.

I have a 5" Aussie and will be making a 7" CAT stack before too long. I love the sound and I don't get a drone. Mine is in the corner, and I ran the pipe straight to the corner of the bed so I didn't loose bedspace - I figure if I'm driving a land yacht I better be able to throw plywood in it and close the tailgate.

I think unless you have a need (track rules or hauling) they have become way over done.
