UPS guy tried to deliver since WED and THURS, but finally caught me at home yesterday. Installed last night with just one jack stand on the OEM muffler side. Definitely a weight savings over stock after having to lift the stock muffler
. Quality product, definitely will be sad to see it lose it's shine, because I'm not dragging my ass under the truck everytime I wash it to polish the thing. Excellent (looking) weld seams and fit.
Install took about 2 hours. Here's what I learned, because instructions are pretty generic:
lube the muffler hangar (I used vaseline) or you'll never get the system out. recommend also lubing the B&B pieces before installing on the hanger. Take out 2 exhaust tip pieces, then main muffler.
Hang the X-pipe first on hanger. Hang the mufflers and match to x-pipe. Don't forget bands, and don't tighten.
Install first stage pipes into x-pipe (w/ bands....don't tighten) and push like hell to get pipe to pop into stock exhaust system. I had to hit the driver side pipe a few times with my palm to get it to go, but it did. The other side was pretty easy.
Loosely place the hardware to the first stage pipes to align it with the stock exhaust.
Set the first stage pipes deeper into the x-pipe and tighten bands.
Tighten first stage pipes to the stock exhaust.
push, pull, twist, turn to align mufflers and tips and tighten bands.
Cable modem was down last night so I couldn't watch the online install video, so don't know how different this is, but I do know they had a lift, and I did this with my back on the garage floor.
System sounds and looks good.
