Question Thinking about installing stacks

I am thinking about installing a single stack or twin's. I am also wondering how loud they actually are since where I am at nobody is running them yet. I do pull about 10,000lbs. and I am not afraid of noise since I do run a 4" straight pipe, but I do not want to have to add an amp just to hear the radio. Also, is there any advantag of running a single over twin's stacks??

Re: Thinking about installing stacks

A single will flow slightly better but it will sound better with duals & look better too.
Since you have an ext cab even with a load on it it's not bad sound wise. If you were in the back seat it would be louder but it's not that bad at all.

Check out www.puredieselpower.com Garrett can get you setup with a good Grand Rock stack kit to hook up with your current exhaust.

Re: Thinking about installing stacks

i suggest 5 inch stacks. sound better that 4 inch, and in my opinion 6 inch is too big, but to each thier own.

i love my dual 5 inch stacks, didn't hafta put in an amp to hear radio. just turn it up a lil. not very much tho.

Re: Thinking about installing stacks

I love my 6" single stack... i can it up so i could still slide my tool back right beside it so i didnt lose any space in my bed. But if i was going with dual i would go with 5". If you do ether one you will wonder why you didnt earlier

Re: Thinking about installing stacks

Has anyone put stacks on with an access cover on the box?? I would really hate to take my cover off.

Re: Thinking about installing stacks

It is just a roll up cover. The brand name is "Access Cover".

That will be just fine then, you'll have to mark it & cut your holes right. There are a few modded trucks running around here with stacks & a roll up cover. They look good too.
