I used to make mini tractor mufflers for small engines and sell them. I gave it up because it cost so much to make them selling them for $30 was breaking even and even then nobody wanted to spend that much. The chrome lawn mower stacks cost $38 to build and nobody wanted to spend more then $40 for one.

There is alot of trucks running around here with stacks.

The replacement muffler for my WheelHorse tractor is almost $100 so I live with the noise.

Good Luck

BC, I see these trucks all the time. The Lil Red Express.

A guy where I grew up had one of them. He used to add oil to the gas to get a nice smoke plume going.:rolleyes:

I think it looks stupid as well. It's as if they are wannabe trator trailer drivers. But i have never been a fan of lift kits either. I like the stock look about almost everything.
I am with you 100 % !! Everyone has Their own Thing though !! Some might think this is cool! I think of it as "coming out of the hill"s truck" Sorry Guy but that is IMO... I think about the other post that have been on here about showing up at a customers with your ride...... Don't think this one would sell much............

I really hate it when your on your bike and come up behind one of these trucks and they nail it and give you that big plum of smoke to suck in. That's when I pull up next to them so they can get a good look at my 9mm. :gun_bandana:

I used to think it looked cool, I guess your tastes change.

I like the stock look too but at the same time I like a good looking customized rig. If its done right I like it.

I kind of like the exhaust up like that, keeps it out of your face when your hooking something up. When My dad bought his tractor it had the exhaust come out the back and that was rough hooking something up. That exhaust would make you eyes burn. We got the verticle exhaust for it and fixed that problem.

Thats why guy put on stacks, they are tired of you shooting the windows out.
