Grand Rock Stacks

Okay guys I am new to the site but I have to ask if anybody runs Grand Rock stacks? 6" mitre cut? How do they sound? I have always loved the look and sound so now I am going to do it! Also what do you guys do about the rain getting in them? I don't have a garage yet so it will sit outside. Do you put coffee cans over them or drill holes to let the water drain?

2010 Ford F150 XLT 5.4V8 Superchips, cold air intake, flowmaster dual exhaust
2008 Ford F350 Lariat Dually 22,000 miles Bad injectors, turbo's, and had a new DPF. traded in on the gasser.
2004 Ford F350 Lariat Dually 44,000 miles lemon EGR, two turbo's
Done with diesel's for now. Lost my @#$ on the two we had. 40 times in the shop between the both of them.

I dont have them but I have seen them first hand and they look/sound great. I think the best bet is to get some kind of plastic bucket or something to sit over them to keep the rain out. I know this is what a lot of truck drivers do.

I had them on, loved it! Just got tired of the loud pipes! Of course I run 4.88's in the rear so, it's alot louder than yours will be just running down the road. I had 5" mitres, I just put coffee cups on at night.

I run the 5" miter tops that I won from Josh and Grand Rock ( thank you, thank you). It's a nice set up. I painted all the pipes except the stacks with black high temp grill paint before I installed them. A far as rain if it's just light I don't worry about it. For heavy rain I put a gallon size zip lock bag over each stack. That way If I forget to take them off they just blow off when I start the truck up.
I run no muffler and no cat and it sounds great. It's loud when I'm in it hard, but I can also drive it so it's quiet.

Thanks Guys! I Talked To My Wife Last Night And She Said To Wait Till Spring And I Can Get Them. It Works Out For Me Also, Because I Don't Have To Go Out In The Cold And Work On Putting Them On. Plus With All The Salt They Put On The Roads Around Here.

Just Outta Curisoty, How Hot Do The Stacks Get When You Run Them For A While?

The Plastic Baggy Thing Sounds Like A Great Idea Until I Get My Garage Built!

Some say they get hot, but cool down quickly. I know the guys runnin' twin turbos on Dodges tell me that they they don't get very hot. I have yet to see. I'm sure yours will get pretty dang warm driving to your cabin.

Hell Ya! The Only Time The Truck Gets Shut Down Is When We Stop To Eat In The Morning After Driving All Night! Then In Ontario We Pull Some Major Hills Kinda Of Like West By God. That Truck Has No Problems Pulling Them But I Still Want More!

I dont even bother reading what you say. no offense, but must you type by capitalizing the first letter of every word.

Bt i can assume that you either want or have stacks....?:splat
