MBRP stacks or MBRP turbo back?

I'm looking into changing my exhaust. I like the MBRP exhausts and I'm leaning towards the stacks. I've been told by my exhaust shop that I'll have to worry about the heat created from the stacks damaging the paint in the bed. Is this possible? Also, are there any other drawbacks to stacks? Thanks!

I wouldn't worry so much about the paint as I would cutting a huge hole in my bed. One drawback is if you decide you don't like them anymore or sell the truck the hole is still there.

To be truthful I almost did stacks, but I thought it makes you look like a punk kid, which I am not. Do it if you want but you won't see me with them.
Check out a 5" system, MKO Diesel has them pretty cheap.

If you were a punk kid you would be driving around in a 94 Honda civic with a 5" tip only.

As far as the hole in the bed it's nothing that couldnt be hidden by a cheap plastic liner.

P.S. I've got the MBRP 4" system from the turbo back. I like it alot. It was a nice complete kit, the only problem I had was setting it up with out using the muffler and not buying and extra pipe. Good thing I had stainless wire for the welder.

The drone if you stragiht pipe it is a draw back. Cutting the hole in the bed is nothing. Keep the piece you cut out and you can have it welded back in and the just rhino line over it.

I'd give you my opinion, but my avatar speaks for itself. As for the drone, I love it. It is like music to my ears. Btwn that and the turbo whine I hardly listen to the radio anymore.

I think you'd be surprised how little drone there is even at highway speeds. But then again maybe I'm just young and dumb?
