Well my truck was only a couple months old when I did my cat back so nothing was rusted on very much. It literally took me about 3 minutes to rip the stock exhaust off. Just get under there and spray some penetrating oil on the bolts and on the slip joints. It should all come off fairly easily.

As far as install time goes. It really depends on how picky you are. I'm anal when it comes to making things line up properly so I spent a good amount of time screwing around with that and measuring were my pipes were and such. Total probably took me about 3-4 hours just using the clamps. Since then I've welded the muffler in completely and tack welded all the other joints to stop them from moving around (probably another 1 or 2 into that work). I highly recommend doing that.
