    looks awesome, except for one problem... What is that big, ugly, silver thing behind the cab? Those things should be outlawed on those good sounding old beast

    2400 gallon with baffles. I know the weight issue.
    Feds rated truck at 5ton not the manufacture.

    Could not get the exhaust down low because of the pump and with the stack up high it does reduce the snell a little.

    Yeh the red is alot, but you cant miss it.
    We do have a 3 teired silver stripe to put on

    Nothing wrong with stacks, just mufflers

    The muffler is a good thing. We have 2 6X6's. I tried several types of hearing protection and the only thing that worked and allowed you to hear the radio without sweating your butt off is a muffler. We put low exhaust, under the bed, on 1 truck but the floor of the cab was unbearable from the heat from the exhaust. The heat from the transfer case and transmission are bad enough. We went back to thru the front fender and a smaller diameter muffler.

It has a 2,000 gallon NFPA baffled tank, 2500 dump tank. 10" newton dump, and a CET 700gpm portable pump, We will be putting a small high pressure pump on it with 400ft 1", 200 ft 1 1/2". Again congrats on your truck looks great!!!
