dpf/doc removal sucks

How are you guys getting these things off so easy and fast?

I started on it then quit with the temperature 24 degrees and snow blowing in my face. I'm starting to think it would be much easier to just do the dpf pipe only. 8 bolts total and 1 sensor and you done.

How are guys getting all the hangers off? Are you just unbolting all of them or what? I wd-40ed all of them but I guess they were so cold they wouldn't budge past the nipple.

Is there some detailed instructions somewhere for a slick way of doing this?

Thanks

Detail 1 heated garage, not anything too hard if youre not freezing and impatient, dont bother removing sensors, too much hassle, mine took threads with etc, get new ones, much better idea...

Unbolting EVERYTHING actually makes it easier in my opinion. Take the the stock exhaust mounts off the truck with the exhaust. That way you get it out on the ground to get the exhaust hangers out of the rubber hangers on the exhaust mounts.

Haven't done the work yet myself but I have heard the easiest way to handle the gazillion exhaust hangers is to leave the hangers on the pipe, but unbolt them from the frame. give that a shot and just take it out in one shot. Good luck with the cold, I know how hard it is to work in that temperature.

The EPA really hit a home run with this one!!! DPF equipped trucks produce 50% less emissions....but they use twice the fuelSounds like Obama math to me!!!!

1 more for leaving the hangers attached till you get it off. I had no problems until trying to remove the factory tail section since I got the AFE exhaust. Then I had to take down my spare tire.

On a side note, I bet the sensors are gonna be a pain in the ARSE with it being that cold where you are. I used an open end wrench with vice grips and a hammer to get mine off.

Yes if you unbolt the hangers from the frame it is much easier. 8 bolts total on the outside of the frame and all 3 hangers come off with the exhaust.

No heated garage.
I have one, non-heated, but the truck won't fit in it anyway even if I had the half a million boxes and junk cleaned out of it.

Thanks for the tip on the hangers. I'll try that tomorrow and maybe I'll have some new power by the end of the week.

I prefer to take the exhaust hanger rubber things off with a shot of WD-40 and a pair of channel-locks.

I used wd and two pry bars to pop mine off, I do remember a couple of them being a bit stubborn.
