DPF delete problem

I just got a dpf/cat delete pipe but I was unable to get the stock exhaust to break loose between the cat and muffler. I loosed the exhaust clamp and beat the living crap out of it and it never budged an inch. I was wonder if there was something I was missing or if there was a trick I need to know.

I undid mine at the down pipe and got all the hangers loose and then wiggled the entire length of pip up and down till that joint worked free.

PB Blaster, Kroil, or other suitable penetrating oil. spray all around that connection.

That joint is the first thing you do. If you've already disconnected the cat pipe from the downpipe, reconnect it.

spray it down real good and mule kick the muffler towards the back of the truck. the pipe will slide right off the back of the DPF

I second the PB Blaster. Worked like a champ on my mid pipe 1 and mid pipe 2 I'm order to do my dpf and at delete. Im sure you know this but Make sure you tune it afterward.

I used a ratchet strap tied one end to the axle and other to the cat, crank down while wiggling... repeat.
