How is the price as compared to MBRP, etc? I met a guy at the last Georgia G2G that had Banks duals and the exhaust looked and sounded great. The only problem was the collector had cracked where the pipes split at the axle. Not busted off, just a fatigue crack that had black sooty fluff on it. I want Banks for mine just because I buy into the hype of Gale Banks being a diesel guru but my wallet keeps asking me if his pipe is really better than MBRP's.

I was running the Banks exhaust on my truck for awhile, and really liked the sound compared to others.

All of our trucks have Banks exhausts on them. I love the sound and it is great quality.

I have the Banks and love it! The quality is great and the sound is nice.
It's been on my truck for 6 years with no issues!

If I was going to buy an exhaust now I would probably buy something else just because of the price differences. Banks is expensive!!! But that is the only downside.

I too have the Banks Monster 4" exhaust. Very nice sound, very nice look, easy install are all positives. I can't speak to a price comparison as I bought this with a larger package so the discounts compounded but there may be less expensive alternatives with comparable quality...saying that, Banks has excellent customer service, quality craftsmanship, and warranty support.

I have a Banks exhaust and like the sound.
The main reason I got the Banks is because when I bought my truck about 5 years ago they were the only ones that had a kit for a cab & chassis truck.

I have it, I love it. Sound got even better without the cat enhanced the turbo whine. No drone.
