Perfection if i do say so myself.......
This bed kit is far and above anything you can buy IMO. I think i will start making these to sell.
Under the truck the 4" nipple down goes to a short piece (8") of flex pipe, then a hard pipe 90* bend to the straight piece running to the engine. Worked out very nice other than i had to widen out the hole in the bed (that pissed me off) because we mis measured something and to center the stax, we had to widen the hole to move it over 1/4"

Comments?

Nice clean look there. I take it that design was invented to coincide with a WVO tank somehow?

Different? What do you mean?
I think the 5" pipe cut with 45s is so much cleaner looking than the 90* sweeps.

I helped a buddy do the welding...grinding...fitting...etc. Hes a welder/pipe fitter by trade so it was a walk in the park for him. He has all the tools which made it really easy.
The 4" pipe through the bed is saddle cut to the 5" header, offset centered to allow the stacks to be set back and in closer to the bed front...that was kinda tought to fab but it turned out great.

Its a Henry Lever action 22
No, has nothing to do with the vegi tank..i ordered a 60 gal tank, sold my 90 gal so there was room for the stax.

Me either, i like to be different. I may take it all out and have it powder coated black now.

you know, i was never really a fan of stacks, but i like those. like was said, right height, size, and all that it looks real good CH. i have a cap but i would consider something like that.

maybe i could get them through the cap?? that would not look to dorky at all would it? :hehe:
