Same here. It could be a nice truck without too much work, aside from the big hole left in the bed from the gay stack.

You don't have to do any of that. It will never make it to the engine unless you get 100 inches of rain in a hour.

The turbo is dash height so the water would half to fill up at least half your stack

I wouldn't be so worried about them filling up with water as much as I would cap them to prevent your truck bed from being covered in soot.

Any truck with stacks I've been around (quite a few), if it rains, all of the soot buildup in the stack gets wet and then when you start it up it blows a bunch of soot-filled water all over your bed. It soots your bed up way worse than dry soot

not to mention i can still run under a 14 sec quarter mile and tow 20k lbs with ease.

id drive either one of those trucks and not be ashamed at all.

I want a 6" black stack on the superduty. I dont really care what yall think. its getting one, someday. I just need the tires, wheels, and lift. Which will all come after I get it running correctly.

I agree Zach, I'd rock either of those trucks any day. They're a little over the top for me (the wheels more than anything), but otherwise they look pretty damn clean. Also.. I wouldn't want them lifted that high haha.

the wheels dont really bother me that much, no matter what certain wheels are going to be popular at certain times. those are a little played out however. not as bad as BFGs ATs or Mickey Thompson Classics though!!

I like lifted trucks. Show, crawl, whatever I just like them if they are tastefully done. These trucks are done well IMO, better than several.

I am not really a huge fan of exhaust hanging behind the tire or out under the body line somewhere, they just get dirty and run into stuff. Stacks are pretty typical and sometimes required at the track as well.

I think a single 6-7" stack is the only way to go it one must have a stack. IMO, those stacks look better than any alternative.

I agree with you there. I like that so much more than duals. The smaller duals that are side by side arent bad though

Thats what I wanna get my only problems is if I do that I need 18s and tires are like 320 up a tire t get 37s. And right now I have 16s I found a nice wheel for only 150 a wheel and there 18x9s its just tires are gonna kill me. So if any one has any good solutions thatd be great!

Also forgot I added a deep trans pan with cooling fins and a 6.0 cooler
