soak the exhaust bolts with penetrating oil. use a ratchet strap to pull the exhaust apart. have a person or jack to help. the DPF is stupid heavy.
egr delete is so simple, just follow the instructions.

when i did mine i did the full deleted exhaust (4"), AFE air box H&S tuner and the erg delete and it took about 3.5 hours by myself, and a few empty cans an smoke breaks lol

just the exhaust maybe an hour. if you pre soak all the bolts if they are badly rusted. and have a good ratchet strap or come along. it also helps if you jack up the back of the truck from the hitch . it stretches the suspension out and gives you more room too wiggle the rear piece that bends up and over the axle.

First thing i did was soak all the exhaust bolts, then since the initial download of the tuner takes a while i started that , while that was doing its thing, i removed the stock air box and erg, then put the new air box on then started the exhaust.

I'd still recommend soaking them down first...as Matty recommended. The exhaust side was about an hour. Depending on your size and availability of friends....you can do it yourself...I did mine alone...not too heavy...but I'm an ancient, has been, power lifter.

Follow Matty's advice and you'll have No problems. He was one of the early ones to go through all these mods....he knows his stuff. He helped me a tremendous amount.

Good Luck,

Wayne

Unplug them , keep the sensors in the stock exhaust, then You can just leave them , or tie them up in the frame. I you plan to go back to stock ever . Just cover the ends to prevent mud from building up inside the connectors. Two ways a ziplock bag and tape it up or just tape it up. Me, I just let them be and it's been several years no issues so pick your own way. Whatever makes you feel good.
