Stacks question

I have horses and I plan on pulling them with my 99 F-350. I was thinking of someday getting stacks for my truck.
I have two questions

Does anyone pull with there truck with stacks. Does the exhaust go directly into the trailer while driving along?

If so I will not do it.

Do all stacks come up through the bed and THEN split into to stacks or did anyone do it with a split under the bed and then up through?

Thanks

Im sure you can make them split under the bed but it would probably cost more money and you would have to deal with going under the framerails and what not.

All the kits I have seen run single up through the bed and then split

Does anyone pull with there truck with stacks. Does the exhaust go directly into the trailer while driving along?

If so I will not do it.

Do all stacks come up through the bed and THEN split into to stacks or did anyone do it with a split under the bed and then up through?

First question, yes unless you have very tall stacks or have a good width of a set of turn outs, you're gonna be gassing your trailer a bit. And if your tune smokes, its gonna stain the trailer.

Solution is to check out a couple of the other "stack" treads, there's a few trucks that run a couple of butterfly valves under the cab, and dump the exhaust that way when towing.

Second, yes all market kits will come up under the truck and then have the Y-pipe and spilt.

Hope this helps ya.
