4'' down pipe removal

Can some one tell me if it's possible to remove your 4'' down pipe in your truck without jacking the truck up or do you have to do it on a 4 post hydraulic hoist, is there enough room between the truck and the ground, to undo the top clamp and slip the down pipe out from underneath.
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help for this information, if i don't have to take it to the shop and can do this in my workshop, it will not only save me some money but I'm sure the job will be done properly and without any damage.
I'm going to renew the up pipes and turbo(38R) while I'm at it, is this to big of a job to do in your own workshop, my truck has only 3-4'' clearance from the roof to the the workshop trusses, so jacking it up is out of the question.

If its the stock downpipe its easiest to just cut it wirh a sawzall and pull out from underneath. No jacking involved. If its an aftermarket downpipe they will normally come out easier in one piece.

What's up googs!
You should be able to unhook the down pipe and pull it out the bottom. Although I'm not sure how you have it hooked up underneath (clamp/welded)

Why not just bolt the power elbow onto the 38r?

Hey blue99, I'm doing the up pipes as well , just thought it will make the job easier, yes I'm going to bolt up the power elbow to the 38R end fit that as one , but it will be easier to remove the down pipe to have better access to change the turbo (oh forgot to say I'm deleting the EBV as well)

are you right hand drive? that will make it difficult in itself.

i did my up pipes with the downpipe still in. only cause i couldnt get the downpipe loose where i had it clamped lol

i used riffraffs writeup.
it tells you to fully tighten the passenger side up pipe to the collector then slide it in place, then hook up the drivers side up pipe.

didnt the power elbow delete the ebpv? or did you mean you were getting a non ebpv pedestal?

Yeah sorry i meant the EPVB pedestal, yes it's RHD , do you think this will be a problem to remove the 4'' down pipe without jacking up the truck or cutting the pipe (ouch)

how do you have it secured? clamp or weld?
if you can get ti loose pull it out the bottom, much easier with two people.

It's clamped, do think there will be enough room under the truck to pull the full length of down pipe out.?

Well it went in, in one piece didnt it? You may have to jack up the truck but that should be it.
