    Re: port back vs port forward

    I can't give any direct advice on this subject, as I do not own a truck. But, I would suggest trying it out both ways (port forward and port back) and see which gives you the best results. Even try firing the port sideways, just to cover all the angles and see which sounds best.
    Just my $.02

    I was also gonna say ports to the side if you can. If not, port up.
