Aussie Stacks...Opinions Please!

I was set on 7'' Mitres, but am now considering these newer Aussie style stacks. They only come in 6'' for now so that would be the only current option.

What do you guys think would look best on my rig??? The toolbox must stay...

My Rig:


Aussie 6":





Mitre 7":

I think that the Aussies look better on DRW trucks. The DRW fenders seem to balance out the outward angle of the aussies.

Miters on a SRW truck. As soon as i get the chance, i'm installing a 4" exhaust, and 6" aussies on this truck.

I agree with ^^^^^ mitres only for a SRW, I think 6" is about the size vs looks limit. the 7" stacks in a SRW just looks too big, it just doesn't balance out with the scale of the bed (especially a short bed)

Think of it this way, most big rigs don't have 7" tips on their stacks

Id get the aussies just so you don't have to put buckets over your stacks every time it rains like I have too!

aussies for sure they look great, and like stroken said you wouldn't have to cover them up if it rains. but if your looking for an awsome exhaust i would run 5 inch down pipe with 4 all the way back into duals and have to 45 degree angled tips coming out right after the tires sounds great looks cool and you still have your tool box

I"m a fan of the mitres...never liked the look of the other style, which I've seen as bull hauler's before.

Thanks for the input fellas. I'm still undecided. I do like the Aussies as they are something "different", however I have always loved and was first sold on the Mitres. I'm going to call and ask a few Q's regarding the Aussies and go from there

BTW, the Aussies are a newer "hybrid" of the Bull Hauler/Horn stack as they have a sharper bend with a shorter angled length and a mitred cut. Hmmm...

There's no requirement to putting something over a miter stack when it rains.
