Full Exhaust or DPF/CAT Delete?

Im sure this has been asked before. Im looking at deleting the DPF/CAT however Im in one of those lucky states that requires annual smog/visual inspections (sniffed and visual inspection ensuring all ome emission equipment is there). My question is in your opinions should I get a full straight exhaust or just the DPF/CAT Delete pipe? I'm going to have to take it off and on each year for the inspection. Is it hard to take off and put on the full exhaust (I have a Crew Cab Long bed)? I crawled under the truck and saw that most of the exhaust brackets are bolted on. The only bracket that appears to be any trouble is the bracket that is pressed into the crossmember just below the center of the bed. Will I see any sound improvement w/ full 4" exhaust over just the delete pipe? Any opinions?

Thanks

The 5" downpipe into the 4" dpf/doc delete back is pretty optimal for the exhaust. If you could get it registered outside washoe county , another county where they dont smog would help with the time and toil. Do they smog in Winnemucca ? Battle Mtn ? ect

They only smog in Washoe County mainly in the Truckee Meadows up to about Pyramid Lake. Past Pyramid to the north (Grelach) you don't have to smog. This was an idea too.

I dont think you should worry about the DPF/Doc delete at all, if you can rely on getting your registration in a no smog County.
