probably wont find a pro who will touch it due to laws unless you go to diesel shop or something of that sort

Spray your sensors with PB Blaster and the bolts that hold it together a few days prior to removing it and its a pretty easy job. You can do it alone but an extra set of hands makes it that much easier

DOn't wait (a few days) spray them wait a while depending if you drove the truck they should come right out. if the truck is new, then they are easy. if the truck has a few miles on it, then they might be tight. best advice! unplug the sensors, and take the whole pipe out first just becareful the sensors are not cheap from Ford.

Yeah that's how we took the one out of my truck too, one piece. The only trouble we has was taking the stock exhaust out of the rubber hangers. My truck had almost 45000miles on it when we did it thou.

i found it easier to just unbolt the hanger itself, lol, all of em!!!
i also take the front skid plate off

edit: another good thing is that he has the h&s, so he doesnt have to disconnect the sensors!
