What do you think of this stack setup ?

Due to suspension mods, I need to run a stack on my truck. I'm looking for something that doesn't spew wet soot after it rains and something that is a bit quieter in the cab.

What do you think of this setup ?


I'd probably mount it a couple inches higher than the cab.

How are stacks when you pull a 5th wheel, if your truck doesn't smoke ?

Should I mount it in the very corner of the bed, ie outside the frame rail or should I mount it inside the rail, like the youtube truck ?


Thanks

Re: What do you think of this stack setup ?

What could you POSSIBLY have done to your suspension to HAVE to run stacks.

A stack will blacken you camper, just look at 18 wheelers when pulling a white box trailer.

Unless you put a cover over the stack EVERY time, you will get water in it, no matter what stack you have

Air bags, panhard bar. There is no room to get the pipe over the axle.

I was hoping that the curved outlet would help in this regard. Lots of construction equipment has that and I don't see them having soot on the hoods.

Re: What do you think of this stack setup ?

I have a couple of 1/4" holes drilled at th lowest point in my exhaust and have never seen any water running out of them , and when I am under the truck I poke the hole with a piece of 7018 welding rod to esure their not blocked. My $.02

I am with Brad on the trailer , if I was a camper think I figure out a different route.

Re: What do you think of this stack setup ?

Can you run a simple turnout in front of the rear wheel? That way you don't have to go by the axle.

Re: What do you think of this stack setup ?

Ive seen quite a few guys run it in front of the wheel, including me. Your camper wont get black, but your rear wheel will.

If you keep the smoke under control, the wheel doesn't get very dirty.

I think I still want to run a stack. I should just do it and if I don't like it, take it off. Its only a hole in the box floor.

Re: What do you think of this stack setup ?

So if you've got air bags and a track bar, do you have a 4 link rear? If so I'd like to see some pics

Have you considered a turn down in front of the axle? I think the stack being close to the window would suck the exhaust into the cab.
