I got dual 6" stacks on my regular cab and it's not that bad if ur going like 45-55, 70 and i notice my radio has to be turned up. I like my stacks tho, I had 5 inch staight pipe kit that came out Behind the rear passenger tire and it was louder if u passed a car or on a overpass but it's a give and take, but when I get into the throttle or take off in 3rd seein the smoke in the rear view puts a smile on my face, only thing I don't like is putting my rain caps/coffee cans over them when it rains or snows

I like the way it sounds and don't mind the extra noise at all when I'm by myself. The problem is when you are trying to talk on the phone or have a conversation in your truck, it gets hard to hear especially from the back seat.

I have dual 6" mitres on a short bed SCab it had a slight drone to it, but after a few weeks I barely even noticed it. I bought my wife a 2000 lariat CC last week and when i drive it i have to put all four windows down so i can hear the exhaust!!! And my solution to the coffe can/raincap problem was to take a very small drill bit and drill a single hole in the bottom of each elbow

Raul with Stealth Automotive sells a cutout thats electric that will help with the noise. you can leave it on the stacks, or turn it down to the cutout and have a strightpiped under the cab exit. you could also extend the pipe out and put a muffler on it(like I am planning to do to mine) and have the best of both worlds.

I agree though, talking on the phone can be rough, but I love the warmer weather when I can drop the rear windows down and listen to the roar of the stacks. with a CC, its not too awful bad. aussies or turnouts are quieter than the miters, but I like the miters look best.

I would say a single stack with a good down pipe and a cat delete, only reason I did dual 6" instead of a single 8 is that I like the look of a dual better
