Smile 5" Exhaust Installation ?

Hey everyone... new here to the forum and have a quick question. I just bought a 2009 Ford F250 King Ranch and I am quickly going to upgrade the exhaust system on it. I have decided to go with a 5" DP back straight pipe with dpf/cat delete along with the H&S mini.

My question is has anyone found it difficult to install the 5" exhaust compared to say a 4"? Just wondering if there is plenty of clearance for the larger pipe to make it an easy attach.

Thanks!

No worries, plenty of room. For me it made it easier removing the stock exhaust after the dpf to jack up the rear of the truck so I could wiggle the exhaust from under the truck out the rear. Took some elbow erase and jacking but that seemed the best way to get it out for me anyways.

No issues with clearances at all. You won't have any issues. Plus the 5" looks sweet. To get the stock exhaust off, get ya a 13mm swivel socket and 6" extension to get the Bolts on the down pipe flange. The nuts on the dpf side of the flange are welded so you only have to worry about the front side. Then to seperate the tail section from the dpf ya need a 15mm deep well. And lots of penetrating oil, wd-40, or other lube to get the hangers out of the rubber grommets. Good luck!

And ya like he said to get the tail section out in one piece, jack up the rear of the truck to extend the rear suspension. You may have to remove the lower shock mount and swing the shock forward to give ya more space then just wiggle it out.
