    I have a 96 T600 and 01 T800 both trucks have:
    12.7 Detroit's,
    Wet kits
    Integrated sleepers,
    Exhaust runs under the frame.
    Stack is behind sleeper.

    Question:
    How much work would it be to convert to dual exhaust stacks that are behind the sleeper?
    I planned to get a factory vertical exhaust bracket that attaches to the frame rail like the passenger side stack.
    I need to replace exhaust anyway.
    But both trucks have air tanks that run below frame on the drives side frame rail. The air tanks will not allow me to run a crossover pipe below the frame. To the drivers side.
    How can I route the exhaust from the passanger side to the drivers side?
    Do I need to relocate my air tanks?
    Has anyone done this?
    I have seen a couple trucks with dual exhaust behind the sleeper but never had a chance to look at the details.
    Appreciate you help.

    Put a y pipe at the back of the sleeper, the 387 I drove it was vertical from the factory.

    T800 usually has the exhaust run between the cab and frame, with the y-pipe under the cab.
