What a p.i.t.a....

Well I finally got a dp for my truck and I tackled it last nite. after hearing nitemare stories about install, that was not the case here. install was a pc of cake. but i did spend 2.5 hrs REMOVING the flat p.o.s. piping. no jack and no saw. just a crow bar and a 3 lb mini sledge. i will guarantee that i will not do it again with out the right tools. but it was well worth it. all 3 hrs total lol

yea it really isnt to hard, most of the horror stories are due to lack of tools, the hardest part is cutting up that old one to get it out
