Wing looks good Terry, not sure about 6" stacks, with the heat shield, might be too tight, but definitely would have 5" stacks on her.

Hmm - a voice of dissension here. Used to like stacks with the rain cap on them, especially when idling there was the bell like sound of the caps closing and the look when throttle was added with the caps standing up. When I was younger!

When contractors went to the silo loading for asphalt a lot of the trucks had to take their stack extensions off cause the were too tall to fit. Some were solid and all but one replaced with shorter stacks, the other cut his off.

I am now partial to the side exhaust. I think it makes the unit look longer and sleeker (faster). I know it may not practical with the compartments on the side.

Do like the wing. It fits the profile really nicely.

Hi Gordon, I have thought both ways, the old trucker in me loves stacks, there's nothing like the sound of a diesel pulling a hill that sounds sweeter. But they also can leave black streaks down the sides that need to be addressed or they become semi permanent, (like in repaint). The weed cutter exhaust will eliminate that, its cheaper, (good set of stacks with mounts and adapters will run......upwards of a 1000.00. Sooo stacks are not practical at all, but sometimes us truckers don't think with our brains.............so it'll probley be stacks

Understand Terry. Sometimes the heart needs to be satisfied as well. Nothing wrong with stacks and I will still ride with you (stacks and Harleys LOL). We all have our idea of what we want to spend our money on and we deserve to spend it as we wish.

I am very impressed with the large stacks on the Peterbilts. I think it is the 992 conventional with the huge stacks. They are fast and the thrum of the exhaust is great. Tough not to speed up as they are passing to listen a while longer.

Those trucks seem to be a western type, you don't see them very often east, along with the super long wheelbase, heck you couldn't even get into some of the places around here, we used to run from NY to the state of Wash. and had to spec the tractor totally different from what we ran around here, (along with a lot bigger engine). after coming off the road and running team I couldn't sleep because it was way too quiet.

Hi Terry!

Unless you ran a very long side cutter exhaust,,, it would be in danger of being under the sleeper/camper and that could not be good. I think you have to have stacks! It is a shame, but stacks it is!

(trying to help)

Lloyd, this is true! can't have it under the living area. Just got done putting my steel order together............phew now I remember why I hated math in school, figuring steel sheets come in gauge sizes, plate steel comes in "normal", 1/16 sizes......then you have the channel sizes. I am a very visual builder, if I see something I can tell you if it will work for what I want to do, but to set here at home and pick out sizes and then order it I hate it, it takes me forever to make sure its correct.

Terry,
I feel for you, I try to do a mechanical drawing with all the dimensions, but it doesn't always work, the hand just doesn't always do what the mind wants it to do.

I generally do a sketch, pencil in measurements, add everything up twice, divide by two, add 10%, then another 5% for good luck, order it, go pick it up, throw a couple extra on and still come up short.

There is a path between me and the lumber yard when I am building something.
