Exhaust install advice

I finally have a weekend off and I'm thinking of tackling the 5" flopro turboback exhaust install by myself (I have an S&B and a XRT Pro to put on as well, no problem there). I've done these mods on 2 other trucks in the past but always had help for the exhaust. The downpipe from the turbo is the only thing that concerns me. Any helpful hints or tips from you guys that did the install yourselves, and by yourselves?

Also, if anyone around the Memphis, TN area would like to help, I'm very capable of providing good beer and pizza....

Your flo pro should connect right to the existing down pipe. Both my 4" and 5" flo pros did, I just did the 5" 2 months ago. As far as removing the DPF SCR systems, I would suggest unbolting the hanger brackets from the underside of the truck then messing with the rubber bushings after its off. Then you only need to put the ones that will get used back on.

I just did this exact same install the other day by myself.
Pretty simple. Once I had all the hangers loose. I put the rear side of the DPF system on a creeper that way I could move it any way I needed.

I have not opened the box with the exhaust yet because the box looks like it will fall apart. I still need to get it down 3 flights of stairs. Does the system not have a new downpipe that connects to the turbo? That has always been the hardest part on the other installs I've done.

Just did this install last month. No new downpipe. Connects to the existing one and flares up to the full 5". Not too hard of an install. Bulky and and unwieldy more than anything. Once I got the old exhaust off, I used some wire to help suspend the new exhaust in place while I finished the assembly and adjustment.

Flo Pro

I did mine last month by my self. I did not have any real issues getting the old one off. Its heavy so you will need to support the back while you loosen the front. Also if you have any 4 year old children that want to help, make sure they don't take your socket extenders that you will need for the DP connection and lose them. New system went up very easy, I did have to weld a longer hanger on the tailpipe section. Mine was short which caused the tip to rub the bottom of the bed.

Fairly straight forward removing it but the bolts on the flange from the downpipe to the mid pipe are a pain to get to. I'd recommend a little penetrating oil to get them loosened up prior to trying to get them loose.
