Thanks, and about the first part... yea thats what i was wondering. Maybe ill need to jack it up and get use of the stock jack to get some extra clearance. On vettes they need I think it is 34" of ground clearance to get it off without pulling apart the whole rear or cutting it. Thats quite a bit lol.Hit Man X said:It should just drop right out provided you have the proper ground clearance to move it and wiggle it out.
There's two bolts up on the collector (15mm?) and then like 3 hangers that need to come out. I'd lube them with WD40 or something similar and use a big set of Channel-locks to pull them.
Also, wear gloves and glasses when doing this. There's lots of bullshit under the truck that can cut your ass up and get in your eye. :shake:

I then laid right under the muffler (about center) lift and take it to the rear of the truck just enough to clear the front crossmember then tip the front down to the ground and go foward with it working the tail pipe over the rear axle. NOW all you have to do is find a palce to hang it in your garage !!!!!
