Help: DPF and cat delete pipe without any hangers?

I have a DPF and Cat delete pipe I am getting ready to install and just looked at it tonight and it does not have any hangers to attach it to the truck. I dont think that is right is it? What can I do to make it work?

Also I was looking under my truck at my stock cat and dpf and noticed a strange black cylinder attached to the pipe between the cat and down pipe. The black cylinder was attach via a bracket that was welded to the pipe and also the black cylinder had a metal mesh looking cable coming from it and attaching to the pipe as well. But there was nothing else attached to the black cylinder from the truck so I have no idea what it is or what is its function. Any ideas?

you dont need any hangers for the Dpf delete pipe. It will hold in place just fine since its about 70 lbs lighted then the Dpf and cat. I was also wondering about the black cylinder deal, the best i can figure is that it dampens vibration from the exhaust. but other then that guess, i have no idea.

Yes, the black cylinder is a damper for the exhaust. I posted it's name and part number in another thread.

It is not needed (nor are hangers) to install just a DPF/Cat delete pipe.


It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.

Honestly not sure what kind of pipe it is. And I am using a livewire.
