    i've seen them on gassers before and don't like them personally...actually the only trucks i think should have stacks on them is big trucks and high-powered diesel trucks (pulling trucks) anything else i think its a waste of bed space...but as for gas trucks i think you would like duals out the back a lot more then 2 smoke stacks that will never blow smoke

    bed space is big for us, we haul a lot of hay so the more space the better...but i will tell you, the best looking gas truck i've seen with stacks is a guy around here has a 1980-something ford F150 step side bed..he has the stacks coming up behind the cab but on the outside of the bed itself in the little notch there is...its a red truck with bright chrome stacks, looks pretty sweet

    my friend has them on his powerstroke, id never consider them. to me it wouldnt be professional. i couldnt image plowing at 3 am with loud exaughst. most all around here are young kids with them and they look stupid.

    read an older post of mine:laugh:

    if they're done right, i do like them on a diesel...but i wont put them on for a truck used for work. ..unless it was a medium duty dump truck, but that's different. i don't like them for gassers, but that's just my opinion.

    I agree. It's sorta like a brush guard on a lowered or 2wd pickup, it's just wrong.
