i was wondering if there are any cons to putting on stacks?

About the only con I can think of is the soot that will get on your roof but nothing a little soap and water can't take care of

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

The only bad side I have seen is that you will get a little more noise at certain RPM ranges. Now this does not sound like a bad thing...but once you have been on the road for 2+ hours it can get a little old. That will also depend on your final gear ratio and how your truck is set up.

Install is not bad, but it is nice to have an extra set of hands for when you are getting everything set and lined up. That way you wont be off on one side or the other. It is a pretty straight forward install though. Watch where you drill when you are putting in the driver's side U-bolt brackets cause the fuel tank is right underneath. A plasma cutter works very well. If you have more questions about it, I would be happy to help you out.

the biggest thing im worried about is buying stacks, and then it being too hard to do myself...

when you buy a kit does it come with instructions or anything?

just got a set for X-Mas, MBRP Smokers. Waiting on the tips to come back. It had directions step by step. They say use a whole saw, picked one up at the store for $40. Going to have a budy come over to help line it up.
