Red face Rain and mud in the stack...

Well this may seem dumb but I will be getting my single stack today for my birthday. One thing I wonder about is the rain and mud falling into the stack. Does this hurt anything?

Should I buy a rain cap for it?

Ok rain I can understand. But mud are you planning on sinking your truck in a mud pit. I understand mud gets thrown around when you play in it. But you must be in some deep thick soupy stuff to have to worry about mud getting in your stack.

Rain cap would look horrible.

My buddy has an 8" single, and doesn't have any issues.

I thought about doing a nice 7" single miter cut, they look sick.

as long as the truck is driven daily or so i wouldnt worry about it. it is going to sit for a while i might throw something over it to keep the water out but other than that you should be fine.

bigcountrysg ---- your remarks are second to none, i never would have asked how is mud going to get in it...

If you are that worried about the rain you could go a couple routes.

1. Put a five gallon bucket on top when it rains

2. We used to have an older Peterbilt that someone had installed drain pet****s in the lowest point of the exhaust to drain the water out of!

I have friends that have 6inch stacks on there trucks. They take them to the dunes, they take them in the mud, they will take these trucks any where possible. They have no rain caps, or anything like that. When they park them for long periods of time in the winter they put coffee cans over the stacks to keep rain/sow/sleet out of them.

This guy lives down the road from me.

My trucks sat out in the rain and i havent had any problems. It does shoot out a mist when you start it and gets on the truck but other than that i havent had any issues.

I have never done anything for stacks and rain, stop and think about it.... your going to let it sit and get enough rain down the stacks to go up your 3 foot down pipe and not to mention the 10 foot exhuast under your truck... the only reason equipment that sits does it, is because a lot of the time there is just a stack and no piping.
