home made stacks

ok i got 5in semi stacks for 40bucks so i started making stacks for my truck. i started by removing the old 4in pipe dont tose this u will use it. i cut a 90 elbow from the over the axle pipe used it to run through the bed cut a 4 1/4" hole in the bed to alow the pipe to move without bending or breaking. then i cut 5'2" out of the 5in pipe and made a 45deg cut on either end this will be the crossover pipe. then u want to cut the end of the stacks that have the flange at 14in on the longest point u will 45 the ends of these as well u will then take and welds the flanged ends to the crossover pipe make sure they r square all the way around other wise they will not look right. u will need to cut a 4in hole in the crossover pipe where the pipe comes through the bed u will weld that pipe to the crossover pipe. here r some pics ill get the finished pics up tomo when i get done.








i forgot to get pics of the flange pipes ill get those tomo

I dont want to rain on ur parade but, did you turn the gas on on ur welder? and looks like there is a small hole in that one spot. and I think the $$ kits are manderal (sp?) bent for a reason, they aint gonna help the free flowing part all that good. also my recommendation for you is to slow the wire down and heat up a tad next time also. and yes "tips" or paint are in order. other than that I have another question. how are they secured to the bed? looks like they are gonna shake and "tap" the bed rails .


so like I said not to bad for ur first time and cheap parts.



and look at the bright side, now ur wheel aint gonna be black.

i know dannan i couldnt afford a stack kit on a budget lol paint is coming this week it will be high temp black. and in still learning to weld i dint have gas its just a 110 wire feed. i welded 1in square to the the crossover tube and drilled holes to put 4 bolts through they dont move lol.. the idea behind this whole thing was to show people thay dont have to spend a a ton of money to have stacks.. but thanks bro
