We've had some good natured (I thought) fun at the expense of the people who put stacks and nuts and stuff on their trucks. But I guess we have another topic to add to the list of subjects you could...

If you're blocking it off I can't see where it matters. If you have the stuff to do either, I'd probably use the correct on for the truck year and its matching up pipe or which ever one is in the...

They have some particular issues, and they're not for everyone but I like my 6.0 a lot. If something happened to it, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
