Question Rain caps for mitre cut stacks?

Is anyone using rain caps on their Mitre cut stacks? If you are which ones? I found these internally mounted caps at Iowa80 but they are a little pricey and was wondering what else is out there? It would definitely help me out since I have my dual 5" mitre stack kit being delivered on Monday and I've never had stacks nor known anyone that had them


On Edit:
I did find another 5" mitre cut cap here a little cheaper

these are the ones that I used but I didn't like them. The exhaust didn't have enough ballz to open the flaps all the way so the smoke just kinda rolled out. Not worth it. I'd think about some kinda stack covers to put on manually.

Re: Rain caps for mitre cut stacks?

Turnout/bullhauler/Aussie style stacks still get water in em too. Just fire the truck up & drive. We have had some very heavy downpours & heavy snow & never had an issue. Just drive it easy till you get some punk in a white honda behind you & clear the water out of the pipes!
Any water that sits in em will be turned into steam & you won't have to worry about it. Any snow will just be blown out, & yes the soot can be cleaned off of your paint when you wax it.

Who really needs rain caps?
