Soot on truck

so this has been bugging me for a while. every time i wash my truck everything behind the exhaust is black. i wash it and within a 100 miles everything is black. never did it untill i straight piped it. so maby thats the prob? then i thought about getting a tip to extend it out a little. its not a big problem but its just one of those things. i like keeping my truck cleen gets annoying after a while.


thats what i missed last time i washed it

Normal for straight pipe and tuning. Plus, you have a white truck.

thats what i though, ive always had a muffler on it untill recently. something else.... i was wondering if it will stain the paint if it gets wet? a guy i know that has a single stack on his dodge said that dis roof is stained with sut. but you can always trust a dodge guy.

He probably never washes it either. I would wash it really good and then wax it. The wax will make it easier to wipe off.

It will not stain the paint. I currently have the same exhaust as you and a white truck and the same prob, its more annoying than anything.

My 86 was white and smoked quite a bit and when I had a dump for about 6 months, the whole *** end of the truck would turn black from the black smoke. I didnt wash it during those 6 months until I welded a tail pipe on, but when I washed it, soaked it with soap and water, it came out looking as white and pure as can be. I wouldnt worry about staining.

Maybe Dodge uses crappy paint? haha

I have a white truck, no cat, and custom tunes, and I don't start to see any soot build up until after a week or two of driving.

I sunk my tip further back so it was more hidden and I never get any on the truck. Maybe a dusting but u couldn't tell unless u wipe ur finger across it. Do you roll alot of coal. That maybe why cuz mine almost never smokes.
