It is very straight forward. Spray down the hangers and sensors an hour before install, that helps quite a bit.

Yes for sure spray hangers, sensors and 2 bolts on downpipe with lube makes it way easier!! What kind of exhaust is it?? Flow Pro??? For getting the stock out i took my spare tire out and dropped the tin guard that when around the tire make it way way easier to pull out i also separated it at the DPF and muffler that little piece of pipe comes apart pretty easy.

Getting the exhaust out without moving stuff makes it way harder. I didn't and it was a wrestling match. Lube is your friend!

if you have the skid plate for the transfer case...remove it so you can drop it out with ease!
word to the wise...remove the dpf/cat as a whole system just in case. makes it easier just incase you have to put back in and you save money on a gasket if you destroy the other one, just an fyi.
good luck bud

Same as what i got, the band clamps suck with the flo pro i just tack welded all the connections just to be safe. The band clamps you just can't get tight enough, get different clamps or just tack weld the connections for safety

x2 put a weld around mine as well. just did it so it would break off incase of putting on the stock system. good luck. them hangers in my case anyway were a pita.
