I don't see how it would be possible on a pickup. The stacks come up through the forward corners of the bed. The camper occupies the same space. Even if that problem were solved, the stacks would be blowing exhaust up into the bottom of the cabover section of the camper. I've never been able to see a benefit to having stacks on a pickup anyways.

It's for those people that like to de-tune their diesels to make them blow black smoke.

I don't get the whole 'big rig stacks' thing on a pickup and then with a TC.

Guess you could punch holes thru the floor/roof and have radiant heat inside TC with the stack pipes.

Stack pipes.......dumbest thing I've seen on a pickup truck

What is the point in stacks? Little trucks are not big trucks.

Stacks are only cool if you have a big set of trucknutz hanging from the hitch.

You guys don't think 6" chrome stacks, Yosemite Sam mudflaps, and 9x12 west coast mirrors with twin cb antennas look real cool on a rusty 75 F-150 super cab? What is the world coming to?

These stacks are just a good way to ruin a pickup

The guys that have them must feel inadequate about something else.

OK..I thought stacks were the dumbest thing until you mentioned 'those'. Not only are they dumb but sleazy and says a lot about the owner.......don't you know their parents are proud.
