It would really help if you put some details about your truck in your signature so we know what we're dealing with. There is no blanket answer to your question. If you have an 05-07 it is a bit of a pain until you figure out how to get it up there. I can drop mine and put it back in with relative ease. A buddy of mine who is a pretty decent wrench turner tried to get it in for 15 minutes and gave up, told me to do it. I stuffed it right in? It's tight and you have to pay attention to make sure it doesn't rub anywhere. That might mean adjusting it a couple times.

If it's an 03 or 04 plan on having to "clearance" the firewall to make it fit. They are tighter than the 05-07.

Its kind of a pain in the azz, but not too bad. The exhaust on my truck (05 with a MBRP turbo back) was the toughest mod I'd done at that time and I survived. I just did another one on a 03 last year (MBRP turbo back). I have a write up on another site if you're interested.

I don't think that is what I said. I said you can expect to clearance your firewall. It is a tighter fit in the 04 than it is in the 05-07.

Get a second set of hands to help. Getting the upper section on the turbo is a PITA. After that it's easy to adjust it for clearance.

With my 4" going up was no problem, no clearance issues. However while doing my egr delete I pulled the pipe up and over, and going back down was a female dog. Had to use a hydro bottle jack and move some metal. That was easier than taking out the second piece of pipe.

I had to cut the stock down pipe on my 2006 6.0 in two places with a sawz-all in order to get it out. Installing the MBRP down pipe was not a problem, I just had my wife hold it in place from underneath while I attached it to the turbo.

I just installed a turbo back 4 inch from Diamond Eye and didn't have to cut a single piece. The stock down pipe comes out without having to cut it if you support the transfer case with a jack and remove the cross member. New 4 inch down pipe came in 2 pieces so it went in pretty easy. Only thing that needed a little attention from a hammer was a stud that holds the firewall insulation in place. The rear section also comes out in one piece if you jack the rear of the truck up and remove the spare tire.
