It's a pretty straightforward install. One thing you might want to do is add one or two more slits to help with compression when tightening the clamp. I'd also recommend an impact wrench, I couldn't get the bolts tight enough by hand.

like stated above it is a pretty straight forward install i just recently installed a magnaflow catback but i had to cut my old exhaust in 3 places to get it out lol but hopefully you dont need to do any cutting and if impact tools are not a option for you just crank thoes bolts as tight as you can with a big ratchet like i did and there plenty tight enough

And be sure to recheck them in a week or so. They will loosen up a bit and possibly start to leak. Some people have had them welded on for this reason

I don't know about anybody else that installed a Mufflex kit on their truck, but I got sick and tired of trying to work the OEM muffler loose, so I went at it with a sawzall (cutting close to the OEM muffler to ensure I didn't cut into the exhaust pipe I was leaving behind).

I also dropped my spare tire, it helped me to get my driver side exhaust tip out from under the truck. (My truck is lowered so it sits at about stock level while on jack stands)

Get some penitrating lub spray and spray all your conections , bolt and hanger grometts the day before. The biggest thing with the install is to be super anal about tightening a little at a time and re-seating the connection each time (pushing the muffler foward into the pipe. Once its snug , hold forward pressure on the muffler with one hand as you tq the clamp . Then the tail pipes, a couple turns , adjust and re-seat then repeat. I did this at least 5 times making sure everything was even and fully seated. And once your done start the truck let it get warm then cool down and re-torque, drive it for a day then check the tq again and leaks. I,ve done this to two trucks and havent had any issues, but being anal is the key.

I just installed the Mufflex DOD24M on mine last night. Make sure you un-clip the ground strap from the hanger rod on the muffler. I didn't notice it there and was having difficulty trying to remove the muffler. Once disconnected, the hanger slipped out without issue.

I also wrapped my tips in a towel so when I was removing the tail pipes they wouldn't scratch the bumper.

WD-40 the crap out of all the bolts and let them sit for about 10 minutes or so before loosening! Also on the hanger rubber mounts
