Downpipe

I just got my new 3" diamond eye downpipe In today. Can anyone give me some advice on putting it on and about how long do you think it will take.
thanks

Re: Downpipe

have alot of beer handy, its a PITA


seriously though,

a porta-power with the spreader attachment is about the best way to bend the pinch weld at the bottom of the cab. slide

then slide one piece from the bottom, and the other piece down through the top

Re: Downpipe

Just be careful and stay away from the fuel line to the head. Found that out the hard way.

Re: Downpipe

cut the old pipe before the tranny x member, losen the clamp, remove the t pin, go back under the truck and smack it with a hammer, the clamp will losen and the pipe will drop out.
