DPF delete question?

Ok guys I have a few questions. Tonight while at the station im thinking about doing the CAT/DPF delete myself with the help of my co worker, and my questions were what general tools would I need, how long does the process take, and do I install the tuner before or after the delete? Any advice will be appreciated.

Better hope you can find a tuner that can delete the DPF regen cycle... From what i heard you cant get them anymore... But maybe im wrong.

Install the tuner first to make sure it programs all the way through. Then install the exhaust. It will take probably 2 hours. You will need some standard and metric sockets. Maybe a dead blow and a piece of wood.

Like he said a few metric wrenches. My exhaust came apart easily. The hardest part I had was prying the rubber mounts off. I also dropped the spare tire to slide the rear section out over the axle.

make sure you have penetrating oil depending on how crusted up your exhaust is. I also had a friend help. That DPF/DOC is heavy. I also strapped mine up with tie down straps so when it did break loose it didn't fall on my face.

unbolt the hangers from the frame, don't try to slide the rubber isolators off the hangers under the truck
