Get beastly power without resorting to grave-robbery—install the Banks Monster Exhaust System. Banks rouses your brute with fat, mandrel-bent tubes and a free-flowing straight-through Monster muffler that lets your beast roar.
Banks knows trucks, and the Monster is built just for your rig—built to make it rumble! Depending on your truck, Monster kits come in turbo-back, cat-back, downpipe-back or DPF-back systems. Plus, some kits come with single or dual exit, and with or without the Banks Power Elbow.
By boosting exhaust flow and nearly eliminating backpressure, Banks gives your rig a scary power blast. Plus, the muffler produces an otherworldly growl without the cab drone that haunts lesser kits. And, each kit is topped off with a monstrous, polished stainless steel tip.
All Monster kits are crafted from stainless steel, including the muffler which is polished to a ghoulish gleam. And best yet, your Banks Monster Exhaust System is backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

I couldn't stand the stock musket style tailpipe on the Duramax. I opted for the Banks due to past experience plus their claim in runs cooler than stock. Installation was easy, quality looks good. The only thing I didn't like was they design the system to have a tailpipe piece inside the exhaust tip. I believe they do this to help with prevent heat discoloration on the tip. I cut the tailpipe piece back so the tip doesn't have another pipe inside it. Looks much better and so far no discoloration

I know its not a catback but i was expecting more than this. Overall... Everything I needed for installation was there, took 30 minutes since i had my stock exhaust already removed. everything fit well, didnt even need the directions. When you go to put it on, take your mounting brackets off your vehicle and slip them on to the exhaust before you put it on. Great response on the throttle with a Poweraid cold air and throttle body spacer. can run ethanol and still get 10.5 mpg's. doesn't help that i also have 35 grabbers either! Overall good, but if you want something to tell your neighbors to wake up this is not it.

Self installed on drive way. Not too complicated. Nice low end rumble and have noticed improved throttle response. Haven't noticed much gain in mpg yet but there is some. Not the quietest but not the loudest either. Fast delivery. Packaging was good. Instructions were ok.i recommend this product

The system looks great. There was a small descrepency on my installation. The tailpipe should be cut to 4" not 5" after the resonator so the tip comes out square to the body. The exhaust clamps are not heavy duty enough. I replaced them with heavy duty ones. That said the $25. for exhaust clamps is money I shouldn't have to spend. The quality of the whole installation is lessened somewhat because of the clamps issue. I also had to take the whole system apart twice to get the cut correct.

Nice quality system was shipped quickly however fit was not correct. This system will not fit without cutting the exhaust tip (which looks horrible) if your vehicle is equiped with MOPAR factory towing package. Banks Customer Service has not been helpful thus far (2 weeks since contact) and I am not optomistic that I will be hearing back from them. That being said system sounds great...Not sure yet about claims of improved fuel economy...Catologue and internet sales should notify potential buyers of fit problem...

Overall happy with this exhaust system. The parts all bolt together and aligned properly, except the last hanger. It had to be removed and realigned and welded back on. Since I'm a fabricator with welding skills I was able to complete the installation while I had the truck on the lift.
