Where I live, this is actually a pretty common configuration for working trucks. I thought it was sensible! Of course this particular one looks like it gets to play a little.

About 20 years ago my brother-in-law had a nice tricked-out '49 Willies pickup with chrome stacks and huge tires - it was an eye catcher - newer pickups just look ridiculous with them.

I have a stock tune in my truck. I drive for economy as I used to teach that for a major truck engine OEM. I don’t blow smoke unless for some reason I have to stand on it. At that point if the pipes were up or down they would blow smoke. Not done unless there is a need.


Ken, you must be in the 1% of stack users then, I belong to Cummins Diesel Forum, and most of the folks with stacks have them so they can and I quote, "Roll the Coal".

There is an 03+ Ram running around this area with stacks that run up the outside of the bed. I assume it is so he didn't have to cut his topper. I don't have a problem with stacks, but it looks cheesy on the outside. There are big metal plates that are bolted on the side of the bed to support them. Although i dont agree with stacks and TC, the above mentioned ram's configuration would work for the OP.

It looks similar to this:

I think this could handle a truck camper. You'd have to take the fuel tank outta the bed, the train horns and light bar off the roof, the fog lights and support bar off, etc.....etc.....etc. But, the truck camper would definitely fit between those stacks!!!

I think.

If it won't, then get out the chainsaw, 'cuz the stacks aren't goin' anywhere!!!

6x6? There are not 6 axles, there are more than 6 tires. Maybe the fumes from those stacks have addled the owner's brain?

Six places tire/wheel assemblies can be mounted.

Even a normal four-wheel drive truck with a dually rear axle (six tires) is called a 4x4.
