Unhappy Stack problem need help

OK I want to put stacks on my rig but with the height of my truck, the height that I want them and the height of my horse trailer when I tow I'm going to get fumes right in the trailer windows. I need to figure out how to put some kinda bypass system so when I'm towing the horse trailer I can run the exhaust out the back instead of the stacks. I've checked around town and the couple guys I've talked to says I'm going to have a hard time finding anything in a 4". Any advise on how to do this and where to go for the bypass part. I talked to one guys and he said years ago his dad did this but he didn't know anything about how it was done. Thanks in advance. Traci

Re: Stack problem need help

I think Joe has an electric dump for his exhaust. You could run your exhaust right out the side in front of your rear tire & skip going over the axle.
If you look at this picture you can see a hint of smoke coming out of his tail pipe. If this is the truck I'm thinking of he has a cut of for his stacks & still ran a regular exhaust with a muffler out the back to keep the locals happy.

Re: Stack problem need help

most cutouts arent 4 inches though. and the problem with a cutout is it doesnt stop the flow from the original pipe. it just opens up another way for the exhaust to escape. to do what she wants you really need to find something that will close off the exhaust to the stacks and open it to the other piping of choice. it will most likely require to valves.

Re: Stack problem need help

Another option to keep the exhaust away from your horses would be to run them wayyyyy over the cab. Something like a set of 5 foot stacks would work just fine.

Re: Stack problem need help

Send a PM to JD Wop, he's got a rear exit tailpipe with a set of stacks. Wide Open Performance built his set-up, maybe he could shed some light on the subject

Hi Traci

Re: Stack problem need help

lol I have only 7 1/2" inch clearance from my cab roof and my carport. I'd say something would have to give and I bet it wouldn't be the carport lol

Sadly I'm very set on the idea
