Cant get off muffler?

Purchased the truck with 4" MBRP cat-less exhaust with muffler. How in the hell do you get the muffler out? I freed the nuts on the hangers, but cant get the tailpipe hanger out of the bushing, not can I free the muffler from the inlet and outlet piping. Any tips or tricks to get this thing out. I have a delete pipe I want to try out.

Thanks.

a big hammer, heat and penetrating oil…. or a saw if its been on there for a while.

I've never had luck taking exhaust apart without destroying something

Thanks. I will give it another go. Trying to preserve things in case the straight pipe is too obnoxious. However, I am thinking about going straight pipe and a FTE resonator further up to kill some drone. So, I guess if I screw it up then I will just have to go that way.

I ran my truck for a week with just my down pipe, nothing else. It was only noisy at WOT, sounded good actually. Id have considered keeping it if i didn't get smoked out at every stop by the fumes…
I think you'll like straight pipe

That is what I am hoping. I have the kids in there every once in a while so I don't want it to hurt their ears, but right now it is too quiet in my opinion. Wouldn't mind a little drop in EGT either. Just have to get the damn thing off!

Just cut it off and run the straight pipe, it will be quiet enough for the kiddos, I used to have stacks and the drone would put the kiddies to sleep every time, now I kinda miss them

Yep. Might just as well have to do that. Tried again tonight it's not moving. Was hoping for it to be a bit easier, since technically here in California you're not supposed to remove a muffler. But had a nice long chat with the CHP friend of mine. He kind of made my mind up to just give it a go. But if I do get jammed up, was hoping to be able to easily throw the muffler back in. But that's looking like a pipe dream. No pun intended
