    Bought this thing and I noticed it's got no stacks, I've never had a weed burner exhaust (seems like the dumbest idea ever)

    Wanted to see what others think about them? My concern, being in Alberta/Saskatchewan, running the truck all night just happens when it's -40c in February and the aux heaters won't work so having the exhaust blowing out directly under where I sleep seems odd to me.

    I wouldn’t want a weed burner on an old truck, but on new trucks with the emissions crap those are more tolerable.

    I've idled my truck in the summer and winter and it has a weed burner. Never a problem just don't let it regen on grass.

    That's kinda what I was thinking.... I'm contemplating throwing a stack on it but thought I'd ask round here first.

    Never had a problem with them here other than I just do not like them. Harder to work on the truck and more stuff hanging under to catch and tear up.
    Parking where you could have snow closing off most all the air coming under the truck would concern me also.
    We had a pre DPF truck with a monster muffler under it. A new one was stupid expensive. We got a frame mounted up right muffler support and went old school for half the money.
    Thank you could do a stack the same way right off the weed burner.
    Nice looking truck. Enjoy.
     
    dustinbrock and 650cat425 Thank this.

    I have had weed burner exhaust come into the cab so I put duct tape over the vents at the rear of sleeper. Ive also had problems with other weed burner trucks parked next to me when they are Idling and I had the windows down. Overall, I don't like them. Its cheaper so thats why they build em' that way.
