MBRP 4" turboback install issues

I bought the MBRP 6200 muffler delete with 4" downpipe back.

I'm having a heck of a time getting the pipes to line up with the hangers. The hanger on the front pipe coming off the downpipe is above the rubber hanger. When we put the rest of the pipe in the 2nd hanger is about 6" off from the rubber hanger. Am I doing something wrong?

It's not a dual. It's standard.

You're not doing anything wrong (if you Are, I did too )..

MBRP fit just Sucks. I don't know if they were always this bad or the fixture they're using today is out of alignment but, here's what I had to do..

Unbolt the front hanger support rod from the framerail and flip it over (it probably need to have a piece spliced into it, to make it longer, but this worked so I left it. The rod they welded on the midpipe was Clearly in the wrong place. As for the back, depending on the cab & body style, you may have to cut/eliminate a pipe to get the right length. But the T-hanger, at the back of the muffler (if you have a muffler), on mine is jammed over to one side to clear the shock & spare and have the tip in the right place.

I also cut that pipe, that goes over the axle, so the tip sit back under the truck farther (I think they're trying to advertize with the MBRP logo on the tip by having it stick out so far)

I just read so many stories that say it went on with no problems and the downpipe was the hassle. The downpipe took us 30 seconds to get in place and about 2 minutes to get it in position and the band clamp back on it.

Then there's folks like me that had so many issues. I wish I had a welder so I could cut the hangers off and reweld in the right place. Gonna be fun I guess.

I thought the same thing "I'll just reweld the rods on the pipe in the right place" (I do a bunch of TIG welding) but, then I'd be Voiding the Warranty I'm sure...

So, I moved the trucks hangers instead.

The front one was the biggest one that was off. It just seems way too tall unless the pipe is gonna hang way down but then the rest won't line up.

Oh well. Just keep playing with it.

I had issues with fitting up the same exhaust system. I thought it was way off and all messed up.
I loosely installed everything and then adjusted as I went back from the turbo.
I thought it was messed up then realized it fit. The mid pipe hanger fit fine the only adjustment I had to make was to the pipe just in front of the muffler. I removed one bolt from the oem hanger, so I would drop down 2inches or so.
Those were the only two fit up problems. Other then that it was smooth, got it done by myself in about 1.5 hours.
I can post some pics of the finished install if you like?

I would like some pics. I was telling my buddy...man I don't know why people say this is such a long task! The downpipe was easy the rest should be cake. I spoke way too soon! We spent about 2 hours or so trying to get it all lined up and it just got too cold laying on the concrete. Removing the old pipe was easy. I just had one dull sawzall blade and didn't have any spares so trying to cut the downpipe, and rear exhaust with a die grinder and 30 gallon compressor took some time to get it cut.
