To loose them or not(stacks)

As much as I love them my stacks they are driving me nuts. It wasnt that bad with the 6leaker but the cummins is f'n loud. I cant hear my daughter in the back seat yelling at me to tell me to switch her movie. I think alot has to do with the last few weekend driving to these events. YEsterday I spent 11 hours in the truck. We left at 6am and arrived at noon to leave at 530 and drive back....I was going to add a muffler, which I have a few MBRPs laying around but Im thinking of ditching them. Ive talked to a few and they admit the cummins is one loud motor un muffled. So

Should I loose them and add an exhaust or not

This means I can run a hard cover and do a cut through over the winter for my stereo....

I took mine off last fall. I loved the looks and the smoke shooting up in the air. But the people that had to ride in the back were always *****ing about it. I had one good friend tell me seriously you don't realize how annoying it is in the back seat. So I went back to my cool duals with no cat and no muffler.

I have a buddy of mine that just added a muffler to his single stack so his baby could ride in the truck. He seems to be happy with it and so does his wife and yungun.

I loved my stacks on my 450, but had to remove them for the noise. IMO, if you are going to be traveling, and you get the added benefit of a hard cover, go with a single, or duals out the side. Maybe even in front of the wheel, to be a bit different.

A resonator does a WORLD of good for that Cummins sound. Give that a try first...if nothing else it might help from pissing all your neighbors off when you go back to the sidewalk smoker...

I had dual 6" straight pipes on my Kenworth (N14), when I hit the Jake brake it was so loud it blurred my vision

I installed dual resonators under the truck and slide-in baffles in the stacks to calm things down.

Check with Grand Rock to see if they make the slide-ins for that short of a stack (mine were 8' long)

I like stacks too, but they can be a PITA! As nice as your truck is and I know how you keep it spotless, it really is up to you. My 05 has 5" silverline with a muffler and it is still loud as hell. You are going to have to put a resonator on it and a muffler to keep the stacks to keep it decent in the cab on long trips. Probabaly going to have to do the same stuff with regular exhaust as well. And I wouldn't exit it before the rear tires, it is a PITA to keep clean. We did that on a DRW and a SRW. The DRW was worse but either way it sucks cleaning soot off.

How high are your stacks in comparison to the cab? I've read that some people have raised them a couple/few inches and it made a heck of a difference.

But I agree with others, a Resonator or some sort of Muffler would probably help out quite a bit.

Dont ditch the stacks. Keep them and just add a good muffler.
