If you have any trouble getting the stock muffler off (which I doubt you should) grab a piece of a 2x4 and a hammer and tap the muffler to the rear of the truck. As far as the stock tail pipe you can just give it a twist and a few yanks and it should come right off.

I just did a magnaflow on my 09. It has 82k miles on all the stock stuff. Wasnt terrible to do. But I did have a lift and you def need a torch cause the bolts were all rusted pretty good. I tried 1 bolt wo heat n snapped it.
Took me about 2hrs doing it by myself. About 30min of that was makin sure the tips sat even in the bumper cut out n also makin sure they both were evenly flush with the rear bumper...lol

When you put the new one on use High Temp RTV at connections points, makes for the probabilty of less leaks and easier to remove in the future.

After working on the head gasket on daughters car for a few hours, I decided to take break from that and work on my truck. I started a 9pm and had the new system on, lined up and tightened down by 10pm, I checked the time, as I was putting the old pipes into the box that my new system came in.... One hour almost exactly. The only real struggle was getting the old pipes disconnected. I took a bit of force and wiggling, but they came out without too much of a hassle.
The Corsa tips definitely look cool. Much improved tone, but still fairly quiet.

I'm about to install a cat back on my truck (mbrp), my concern is I don't have access to a lift for my truck, so it's going to be on the ground (will have jack stands or wheel ramps), is that going to be enough space to remove the old exhaust? I know the MBRP exhaust comes in pieces, if the stock exhaust comes off in prices I should be fine, but if its one piece, immthinking I may struggle...anyone know if I'll be okay or not?

Yup, as long as you can jack it up or drive it up on ramps you'll have tons of room. That's what I did and it literally took me 3 minutes to pull the stock exhaust off.

I did not even jack my truck up and its a 2wd. I just slid under it and had plenty of room.
