Subject: Peterbilt Pipes


I am looking around for pipes for my Pete. I have a 379 that is gonna need exhaust work within the next year. Stock mufflers now but I want to go with a nice large exhaust,picket elbows and mitre tips. I was thinking either 7 or 8 inch pipes 96" long,which would give me about 3 ft above the top clamp. I was looking in iowa80 and other online websites and the prices seem to come in around 2-3k. Were have you guys gotten yours from? I really tried to give a local shop my business but they wanted 1k for each elbow!!! I don't really want my truck too much louder than it already is so I'll prob put a resonator or muffler underneath. What sounds good? I basically want the larger pipes for the look-not a loud ass truck. What do you guys recommend?

8's are big enough for me-i kinda like the new Chino look but I will prob go with the mitre in a 3 piece stack. Anybody have some pics of Pete's with big pipes?

Been looking at Dynaflex and Lincoln pipes? Any difference in the chrome quality?

I'd stick with 6". The 8" look retarded to me. Only truck that looked good with them was a custom double high-rise bunk long hood KW with a real healthy K-block in it. It was the placement and color scheme that made them look good. Otherwise it is like having stacks on a pickup truck, retarded looking. My opinion anyways!

Put a set of 8" pipes on a KW for a guy. Straight cut with rain caps. Over $2 grand from I-65 chrome shop. Guy still owes me $5K for trailer rental, so not real happy with him.

Try thomure manufacturing in east prairie mo and I would go with the spiral inserts in the stack sounds nice without the headache, I had a pair off them on my first truck, could let them get salty dinge dirty and they would still shine like new when I washed it.

Subject: Chinos or Flat Tops...

chinos or flat tops.... anything else is so "10 years ago".... you might as well throw incandescent amber lights all the way across the bottom of the front bumper and go for "15 years ago" if you want your truck to look like it was outfitted in a previous decade...... Bull haulers and mouse ears have always looked right on bull racks, but unless your consistently passing somebody grossing 110, then jsut buy some mitred three pieces, get some masking tape, and take a chop saw to them....... you wont want to on something that expensive... but the willingness to lop the end off of a couple grand worth of new triple chromed pipe with a 60cent cutoff wheel is what seperates the men from the boys..............

I have 8 inch on 2 different 379 petes.... One is a daycab. and those are a tad bit shorter. Mitres on both, with pickett elbows... The daycab has a short resonator on it, and the one with a 63 inch stand up doesn't have anything under it... both sound real nice, but the one with the bunk has just a bit more of a rumble to it... I love the sound of both of them. A nice deep, mellow rumble.. Neither is very loud.. The smaller diameter pipe you get the louder the sound... On the daycab, the exhaust came from 4 states trucks, and the one with the bunk, that exhaust came from Allstate Peterbilt in South St.Paul MN... Any Peterbilt dealer with overcharge for them... I watched 4 states truck and they had a special on them, and i paid around 2300 for them there, Allstate was almost 3500...

I did see a guy on Craigslist have some 8 inch advertised... I'll paste the link here... http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ank/pts/2373137150.html

Check that add out... He's reasonably priced... If i knew how to post pictures i'd post the pictures of my 2 petes with the 8inch pipes on them

I have 6" on my KW, they sound really good but after sitting at the wheel for many hours they are quite loud, this is with a 3406 B Cat engine. I cut my own and put Stack Breakers on so I could fold they down and drive in the shop and they are bullhauler stacks. Terry

The 7-8" turnouts like that are the only way to go. Mitre cut stacks are nothing but rain catchers. Just what I want to do is have to put covers on all the time. Brother bought a set of lightly used 8" mitre cut for half of what most want new. $800 for new turnout tops. He can have the mitres and his pail covers.

Here's the rest of the fleet. I've seen their ads in the truck paper. I think they get new trucks and trailers like that about every year.
