Angry Need help installing 5" flopro 2010 F350

OK. I'm not a mechanical idiot, but am getting frustrated.. I cant get the dang stock exhaust off.. I have unbolted the flange at the downpipe and the only hangers attached are the double ones behind the dpf. I also have the clamp on the pipe behind the muffler disconnected.

Is the pipe supposed to come apart at this point or am I missing something?

Anyone in Ft Worth, TX are with an hour to kill? lol...

Start with the tail section, clamp is loose behind muffler, good. Start there, get it separated. Tip for getting it out in one pc, take passenger rear tire off. Once you have the back half off, then remove the DPF and CAT. Note that it is REAL heavy as one pc, be careful if you are trying to do this alone.

If it were the weekend, I'd come help in person.

The exhaust will not come apart easily the first time. Things will be a little rusted. I hit mine with a big hammer to beat it apart. once you have the tail section disconnected you should be able to wiggle the doc/dpf section out of the truck. Like was said it is heavy. To get the tail section out of the truck disconnect the passenger shock from the axel and move it out of the way. Jack up the rear of the truck using the hitch so that the rear axel drops, this should allow the tail section to come right out.

Is cutting the old downpipe the only way to get it out?

Yup. Unless you lift the cab or move the tranny.

are you sure you have the clamp on right all the way around the flange?
