DPF Removal

I started at the second clamp from the muffler, loosen it. Get a ratchet strap and wrap one end around the axle and the other around the muffler, ratchet it down snug moving the pipe and muffler back and forth, ratchet some more, ect.. it will come completely apart.

Get a crow bar and work the rubber exhaust hangers off the exhaust mounts working your way up to the header connection. They all won't come completely off just do the best you can. Disconnecting the sensors at the clamps as you work your way up the truck, do not unscrew them they can stay intact.

At the header connection I used a deep socket on air ratchet on the bolts, nuts are welded to the flange. When disconnected the rubber mounts that you couldn't get off come off very easy now. And the dpf and cat will slide right out over the Trans mount.

Now bolt up the dpf delete at the flange and use the new nuts that come with the kit snug that up. Now install the rest of the supplied pipe and get you ratchet strap around the back section of the muffler and the other end to the transmission mount, clamp it down till everything is sucked up tight.
Install the rest of the clamps and tork everything down,

Your done!!! Took me 2 hours with no help. And you now have the cure to Japans Radiation plant problem.

Just took mine off this afternoon. I used the ratchet strap trick and it came apart pretty easy. If I would have had a air ratchet, that outer bolt on the down tube flange would have taken mere seconds, not 15 minutes. I unbolted the hangers from the frame so it all came off really easy.

All in all, the dpf/doc came off in 30 minutes total. I have too wait till the kids go to bed to reinstall the delete pipe and download the tunes. Wife is out of town on business and the kid aren't big enough to just let them play with supervision.

Holy $%#%^ that dpf is heavy.

Tomorrow night I will install the S&B and then it will all be complete. I installed the Mini Friday night so it is just waiting to be unleased.

You can also remove the hangers completely from the frame.

I removed the hangers from the frame, except for the rear ones. I left the rubber grommet mounts up, used soapy water in a spray bottle and the hangers slid out with ease. I used a 6 foot New York Roof hook, got behind my truck and used the hook to pull the rear section out from the hangers. Put foot on rear tire for leverage. You could also use the ratchet strap I guess, but soapy water sprayed into hole the hangers are in helps tremendously and doesn't stink.

Here is a new york roof hook for my non Fire Dept. brothers.
