Yea mainly the soot issue getting on the cab plus the constant drone of the exhaust, hope you dont have a regular cab or love the sound of constant exhaust. + idk about most people but having a hole in your bed and loosing cargo room.

Well I have seen alot of people that have travel trailers have to worry about smoking out their camper. Then saw one get the stack into the front of the trailer. The under bed can work just as well for performance just does not look as mean. JJ
