What tools are required for the removal of Exhaust Sensor?

I just got my Spartan Tuner and AFE Exhaust in the mail. What tools are required to remove the sensors from the stock exhaust? I want to have every thing ready when I do this. Also anybody have any tips to make this easier?

Do a search, there's many threads on the removal. Suerto's thread comes to mind, and elibenson has good information as well.

Just remember to soak the sensors overnight with penetrating oil. You're gonna love it...

Definitly soak all the sensors the night before with PB Blaster. I used a line wrench and the vise grips on the open end of the wrench as advised by guys on here. Without the vise grips, the line wrench was actually opening up because the sensor was so tight in the bung. They were the hardest part, the rest is just nuts and bolts and hangers. I used anti sieze on them in case I have to go back to stock in the future. Also, I spent much wasted time trying to use a pry bar and flat head screw driver to seperate burnt together sections of the exhaust, forget that! Grab ahold of a crossmember and give the muffler a good swift work boot stomp, they pop right apart... Save the delicate touch for the sensors. Good luck...

I removed the spare tire and heat shield and jacked up the rear of the truck to remove the stock muffler. Others say they undid the right rear shock mount. I used an air ratchet to remove bolts on hangers and left them connected to exhaust till I got it off the truck. I used a 1/2" open end wrench with vice grips over the open end to keep them from expanding and a cheater pipe to loosen the sensors. Reinstalled sensors and hangers on new exhaust and reinstalled. If you have a short bed, get a saw saw to cut the AFE to fit (don't cut wrong section) , and go get some washers to fit the new dp bolts because the AFE ones are too long.

Will the DPF pressure sensor fitting that Cobbs Diesel Performance sells work in the AFE exhaust. As for the 3 other sensors, I'm probably just going to buy new ones so I can easily put the truck back to stock if necessary.

Hypothetically speaking.... if a friend of mine were to do the DPF/DOC delete install... and they cant get the rear sensor out... can they still run the truck till they get a new one to put in the pipe?? will it throw a code or do any kind of damage?

Figured i would post on this thread as well... mods can delete or modify as necessary...

What Benjamin24 said get some washers for the dp afe's are to long,but i didn't have to remove the heat shield or the shock i just jacked the back of the truck up and wiggled it out.One other thing that helped me is oil the hangers too makes it a lot easier to get them off.
