When removing dpf/doc...

wouldn't it be easier to remove dpf first and then the doc if doing this by 1 person? just thought it would be much lighter to handle it rather than removing it in 1 piece?

Any take on this?

If you split them you have to replace the gasket if you reinstall. I did mine by myself several times. Its not that bad with some ratchet straps to lift it up in place.

its easier to do it in one piece. it weighs a bit more, but its two nuts instead of 8 or 10. Just get a jack stand to hold the DPF/DOC up, loosen the exhaust clamp, put your hands on the DPF/DOC and kick the muffler back. It'll separate with some persuasion.

thanks for a very helpful info. also do i remove the sensors while the stock pipe is still attached or should i just unplug the sensors and remove them on the shop floor?

I called a dealer and asked about the rear egt sensor and was told they are 70 bux. should i get one or just be careful removing it?

unplug them and leave them attached. Get some penetrating spray and let it soak for an hour or so depending on how many miles in the truck. The bolts that hold them in are somewhat soft so it helps if you have a crows foot or something similar.
