Stacks on a 250? Good idea?

So I'm thinking about putting stacks on my 250, is this a crazy idea? I don't haul tall trailers very often so it's not a necessity, but I think it may look good. Would it be better for performance if I just did a dual exhaust out the back? Am I crazy for wanting to put stacks on a 250? Cause I usually only see them on dually 350s or larger trucks.

Stacks or duals out the back won't give any performance differences, they are purely cosmetic. A 6" stack will yield the same performance as a 4" straight exhaust. As far as being crazy for wanting to put one on, no you aren't. Personally, I don't really like the look, but a lot of other people do. As long as you like it, that's all that matters.

I kinda like the look of stacks but I wouldnt want to loose the bed space.

BTW what happens when it rains, snows, or in missouri's case sleets.

Where does all that water go?

I image while running water would evaporate.
But what if it rains 3" of water.

Wouldn't that be like stickin a orange in the exhaust of those bubble bee rice burners that wont be waking me up any more .

Its no big deal when it rains. You would have to stick a garden hose in your stacks for them to fill up. Only problem I've had was when it does rain, my exhaust just blows a little soot on the back of the truck.....but the hose takes care of that. I have 5" mitres on my F250.....I love it. Check out Chrome Depot. They gave me a really good price on the whole kit with 7" mitres (about $700 shipped to my door) but I then found my setup on craigslist for $150.

if you plan on making your truck big... then go for it... if you are staying 6" lift or less, then dont do it... it will look funny... and sure as hell dont make them taller than the cab, you dont drive a dodge afterall

My truck isnt lifted at all, I think it looks fine. But to each his own. I would still prefer to go with either 7" or 8" stacks, but money seems to always be a factor. The one pic here, I herculined the bottom portion of the truck....guess I should put a finished pic of that up too huh?
