Stack covers? What to use??

Hey guys,

Im about to get some 6" mitre cut Grand Rock stacks put on my truck and was wondering what to use to cover them so rain water and stuff doesnt get into them when the trucks parked.

I have seen many guys who owner/operate heavy machines use buckets or coffe cans to cover their machines stack(s).

What do you guys do to cover your stacks? Is there anything made especially for this purpose??

Thanks!

More to come, I have a LONG wishlist.

I never have bothered covering any of mine in over 4 years of owning them. But if you want Complete or DPP sells nice stack covers.

Re: Stack covers? What to use??

Cool, thanks for the info guys! My truck sits outside 24/7 and thought id get some for when it rains so it doesnt blow black soot water all over the truck.

Rain water would never get into the engine throught the stacks since they go down them back up to the turbo right?

I know some machines stacks go right down into the turbo and have heard some stories about ruined engines from water intake.

Agian, thanks

Mine sits outside 24/7 as well in rain and snow, haven't had one issue yet, and I also drive it through the automatic car washes without issue as well. I believe the water will leak out the flex pipe if I'm not mistaken. I haven't seen any black water spray out of mine yet.

Re: Stack covers? What to use??

Maybe flappers would be the way to go. if it is outside 24/7 u dont have to worry about taking them off in a rush or the pouring rain and getting soaked. ive had mine on for two yrs now and no soot on the truck since ive put them on. Its raing in the picture so it fits lol.
