Re: Up pipes
I'm just completed a turbo back exhaust and up-pipe replacement. In fact I'm putting the tires on tonight. I raised the cab 6" to remove the down pipe. You may be able to remove the up pipes with a sawzall. It's gonna be tight threading the new pipes into the correct location. At a minimum, whether you raise the cab or not, you will need a 1/2" drive 24" flex head ratchet with a quality 10mm deep set socket. I suggest an impact socket. These two items will be required to remove the up pipe to turbo flange connection bolts. Use the hell outta Youtube, before you get started. There are several great videos for this swap out.
