Help needed!

Tried to install my 5in diamond eye exhaust tonight. Long story short we jacked the truck up, attempted to wring out the tailpipe and finally gave up 2 hours later. I need to get this exhaust on tomorrow. Help would be very appreciated

The only way to get the factory tailpipe out without cutting it is to have the rear end completely unloaded.

So I actually had the pleasure of putting my Diamond Eye 4" on exactly 18 hours ago....I too got to the removal of the tip to the resonator section. I did NOT want to cut it just in case I had to put it back on.....So I read on here to jack your truck up at the receiver hitch and remove the bottom shock bolt and push up.....I did both and twisted the exhaust out. I did find that I could not pull that section out the back, I had to twist and go forward to the front of the truck. It easily came out with some twisting

I pulled mine out of the back by jacking up from the trailer hitch but I did not have to disco the shocks.

Really?!?! I could not get it no matter how I twisted it out the back, and there was no chance in HELLOOOO without popping the shock bolt out and moving upward......
