Which exhust is easiet to take down and put back?

I am planning on getting a tuner and down pipe back cat/dpf delete. Probably won't run tunes over 250. So Which exhust would be easiet to take down and put back when inspection time comes once a year? 1 piece? like the AFE? or in pieces. I live in Northern NH so road salt is problem and was thinking about SS. I hate to struggle on garage floor. LOL.
Also I'd like to keep the noise down so inside the cab is decent still. Some one posted here leaving a muffler on helps this. And to throw in another question to complicate this post more which size would be the way to go?

If you haven't made up your mind on tuner, H&S is the easiest because of not having to take the sensors out of the exhaust. I have a Flo-Pro exhaust and it is was a PITA to install because it seemed to be about 1-2" off. The muffler did help, not much cab noise at all except for the turbo whine, but I think that is because of the intake.

Yeah, that's what I meant, a little tounge in cheek. We have smog checks here now every other year so that's what I did. Plus, if I ever have to take it in to the dealer it's easier to put back as well.

Looking at your sig I'm curious how and where you mounted your Cobra?

Ol
At first I had it velcroed with commercial velcro to bottom of dash in center of truck just above the "hump" I have the 40/20/40 seat. But the heat released the velcro sometimes so I bolted it with the mount supplied by Cobra. Gained access by removeing the panel around radio,etc. The bolt holes are low and only 1/4 so I figure when I sell someday I'd just fill holes with finished black bolt for a neat apperance. Who would know if something was there.
This works fine. CB is low within reach and mike hangs from dash higher up. I love the Bluetooth feature on this set. Also set is out of the way enough so someone can still sit in the center seat for a while anyway.

I don't know about a video but there's a sticky on the instalation here. It's pretty easy really. Just read through the sticky or do a search. It's no big deal to do by yourself...

I see that thanks. I have to wait now as my Blackstone report came back yesterday and they said they found 29 parts Potassium but Sodium is real low so they can't say it's a definate coolant problem.
I still have real good wear rate. Below the average actually. But they said to keep an eye on it as a coolant leak may be developeing..So I'll see in 3K more miles or so if the sodium and potassium picks up or goes down.
I don't want to mod it and have to go back for coolant issues again. Don't want to give them a chance to turn me down on engine work.
Darn..I was so looking forward to a turner and Cat/dpf delete.
