Have you tried a ratchet strap puling from the back of the truck?

I am the guy with the problem. I am not sure how the ratchet strap would work. I can beat it in there but can't turn it to match the down pipe. I can't turn it initially and then beat it in because the belled out side catches on the down pipe. With what i have the only way i can install it is to slide it in and then turn but the tolerance makes it turning impossible.

I think what another poster was trying to say with the ratchet strap it to pull the stock pipe toward the rear to give some room. Trying hooking it arround the fake muffler. I did it by on my back and pushed toward the back with my feet. It sounds like you got in though so did you try some lube and a strap wrench to turn it?

spread apart the cat back exhaust where the strap goes around the pipe. i just used a pipe and put it inside and pulled till i spread the sides of the pipe enought to get the pipe in side. I hope this made sense.

One thing to note- I've always found they install much easier by taking a hammer and lightly beating the "Lip" of the pipe on delete pipe, toward the tailpipe end, in a bit.

In other words, on the leading edge of the rear end of the delete pipe- beat lightly with a hammer all the way around.

Many times the ends come out with a slight "bell shape" from the forming and crimping, which can make it a pain to install.

JBHT- How did you do it? I have removed the CAT and DPF without a problem. Now I have the downpipe with flange on one end and the 3-1/2" slotted female pipe with clamp on the otherside. Trying to fit powerstroker67 pipe in there has been a chore! What side do you bolt up first? Do the nipples and pressure bracket face up? Did you remove the factory muffler and tailpipes?

I had previously installed a Banks exhaust pipe, so maybe it wasn't as tight, I don't know. I pulled the rear portion toward the rear of the truck with a ratchet strap hooked to the hitch, and to the last exhaust pipe hanger near the spare tire. That gave me room to install the delete pipe. Then I unhooked the strap and pulled forward to join the pipes. If you have to, maybe you can pull forward with a strap to pull the joint together.
