anyone have exp with custom stack fab guy in Thornton

I was searching on craigslist to see if anyone wanted to trade me my exhaust for a stack or if there was one I could pick up cheaper than buying a stack kit brand new and ran across this guy

Diesel Stacks, custom fabrication

He said that he would do a single miter cut 8 inch black stack for $250 INSTALLED. (that includes the installation parts as well like the elbow, etc...)

It sounds like a pretty good deal considering that most stacks alone are $200 not including installation kit much less labor to install it.

Never heard of him, But my suggestion to you is to visit his shop. If you have good feeling about it give him a shot. If not walk away and no money lost.

Is that Schmidty from Boscoe Fabrications? He's on FB and part of CDC. I've talked to him a couple times about welding a couple things on my stack that I built myself. He seems like a nice enough guy, but I have personally never dealt with him. The price he quoted me to weld a couple joints was a little high in my opinion.

You could always piece together you own kit like I did. There is a semi supply store here in the Denver area the I got my parts from and installed the stack myself.

i installed my stacks on my both my black long bed and one of my white 7.3Ls... but he said it's $200 for just the parts or $250 to install it as well.... considering the military lost one of my tool boxes with my hole saw blade when they moved me last, and to avoid the headache / time of installing it... $50 seems like it's worth it.

If it's worth it to you then go for it. $250 installed isn't a bad price really.
