single stack

Scored a 5"x48"chrome stack, 16"x16"x4" 90* elbow, 18"x4" flex pipe for $25.00 all i need is a 4"-5" adapter and some clamps.
my? is, are you supporting it at the 90 up through the bed, the closest hanger is about 2' from where it goes up looks like i could fab a new hanger and use a few exsisting holes in the frame.

Re: single stack

Most people secure it using a u-bolt style clamp to the front of the bed, once at the bottom and once near the top of the bed lip. Drill the two holes, and then run the bolt ends through the bed, nuts on the opposite side.

Re: single stack

If I ever did one I would have a piece of 1/4" plate steel cut probably 8 or so inches square with a bolt hole in each corner to bolt it to the bed floor. Then get a piece of pipe where the OD fits the ID of your exhaust pipe. Cut about a 2 inch section of it and weld it to the bottom of the plate in the center. Then cut the appropriate size hole in the center of that (not necessarily in that order). On the top find a piece of pipe that the OD fits the ID of the stack size you want to run. Weld that to the top of the plate so that it surrounds the hole you cut for the smaller pipe feeding the stack.

Then you just slip your flex, over the lower ring and clamp it and slip the stack over the upper ring and clamp it. With the plate bolted to the bed in each corner it's solid. And it takes care of the pipe adapter and mounting all in one. Just choose plate size and bolt pattern so that the bolts all hit on the tops of a couple of the ribs in the bed floor.

Just a thought.

Re: single stack

My single stack is supported by a hanger in the bed and by the 4"-5" reducer that is wedged in the 5" hole in the bed.
