5" MRBP down pipe back install question

I am expecting my 5" full delete exhaust w/ muffler tomorrow. I was wondering if there are any tips to make the install smooth. I can see the sensors and plugs, but how does the def lines come off? do they need to be plugged? I plan on taping up the plugs from the sensors and tie them up, since I never heard anymore about dummy plugs to keep the connections clean. Thanks in advance.

Have a friend there to help remove the stock exhaust, makes it much easier. Everything is pretty straight farward in regards to getting the electrical conecters off one thing that got me was the silver cover on the urea injector snaps on, its not a rivot. I used di-electric grease in the connectors left on the truck then black taped on top. Make sure you have enough new pipe under the clamp when you tighten it down...ask me how I found this out.... Lucky I was going slow. I sprayed cold galvanizing on my tack welds and on the clamps themselves as I have had clamps rust a hole in the pipe.

Well....the install went smoothly, except for losing a 8 mm socket somewhere on top off the motor while loosening the bolts for the pipe that you remove to install the egt blockoff plates. It is such a different animal now. I love the turbo sound, the louder exhaust is going to take some getting use to. I would also like to note that performance truck products is the only way to go. Best price, 2 days shipping from tx to IL, great people to deal with.

Make sure you put something over the sensor itself to keep it clean. I used balloons and some electrical tape.
