Does it go to the front of the truck, and is a hard line? It is probably your line for the transmssion cooler and if you take it off your going to drop a ton of tranny fluid so have a pan ready. (Assuming your truck is an automatic)
If you haven't started, how do you know it won't clear?
Could just be really close.

well the previous owner installed a bully dog exhuast, and when he put the downpipe on he used a hammer and put a nice dent in the downpipe right by that cooler line, yeah its a hard line and theres anyother that runs just a bit farther back and is the same, so i didnt know if he didnt turn the downpipe enough or would that not make a difference?

you have to cut the old DP in 3 places,cut the goose neck off at the turbo, cut half way point, cut before cross member. she will come out NP.. and you cant do a 4" DP on a OBS truck, not a chance in hell it will fit, 3" round barley fits after bashing firewall in

i havent got the 4" yet but it should be here shortly, the 3 inch thats on there hasnt had to have any work done to the firewall, at least not what i can tell, the whole system is welded so when i get the new system it is goin to be using all clamps instead, just to make it easier on myself.

I can tell you as long as I've been on here, lifewitlooie has done EVERYTHING to his OBS, so I'd take his advice and feel confident he knows his chit!
