Stack on outside of bed?

I tried posting this under general aftermarket but no replies so far. Have any of you tried or know someone who has tried to put the stack on the outside of the bed near the cab corner? I found this photo on google and was wondering why 99% of stacks are in the bed. Anybody have any photos or experience with this? BTW, this truck is huge, CC, Sleeper, long bed, dually

Seems like it would look odd without that sleeper cab to break up the lines of the truck. Should be an easy to install though. My exhaust guy has stacks like that on both his shop trucks (gassers).

Hope it looks better than this guy's outside stacks.

if you want to put the stack on the out side of the bed, you have to go down and under the frame rail. It requires more bends and more plumbing. It also is a catch point, like in a car wash or brush or parking bollard and it lowers your ground clearance at the point the pipe goes under the frame rail. It can be done and I have seen it on a couple of flat bed trucks. good luck and hope it works for you.

I do understand why you want to go outside the box, with your role top it would make it a challenge. I am pretty happy with my exhaust exiting our the passenger side rear corner....right into the widow of my favorite rice rocket.....but that is another story.

honeydew: I read on another forum where someone said that mustang looked like the love child of a mustang and a peterbuilt, what with the mirrors and horns.

aekrogh: I didn't think about the necessary bends under the frame rail. I don't usually do anything where I need lots of clearance, but it would be my luck that I'd tag something with it and rip it off. I saw that Dodge earlier too. I think that it looks really good. I know nothing about body work except from shows like Trucks! and I can only imagine the time and effort, but its definitely unique.

Well who knows what I'll do, I might just but a 4" MBRP turbo back on it and keep the wife and neighborhood happy. Or at least slighty more happy than stacked. Thanks guys!

That Mustang looks like a "Smokey and The Bandit" wanna be.

I found this photo of a truck at Bandimere, apparently they required all of the vehicles there to have some kind of stack because the soot was getting some signs dirty, it's temporary and at the rear of the truck so it doesn't really give the same impression.

Google Image Result for http://image.dieselpowermag.com/f/events/0911dp_diesels_on_the_mountain/30950418+w200/0911dp_07+diesels_on_the_mountain+exhaust_turn_up_ pipes.jpg

And this kid doesn't seem like the diesel type, flip flops and plaid shorts? maybe I'm old fashioned but somebody should take his cummins away

Honeydew, can you get a couple of photos of your exhaust guys shop trucks? If its not too much of a problem. I am trying to decide if I kept the pipe size smaller 4-5" and then maybe threw on a set of fender flairs if it wouldn't look quite so sore thumbed. I sure can't find any other pics on the net unless their ridiculous like that 'stang or worse. I really wish I had photoshop.

Neither truck was there this weekend and the shop looked like it might not be operational...

I'll check again sometime this week during business hours.
