Muffler Delete pipe installed..
The last pipe that went over the axle and around the tire I had to cut so that the tip would site the way I wanted it!

I tried to do the best that I could with the weld cause if it looks nasty and you are looking at it your going notice it... So I thought this weld was pretty descent..

Nice looking setup. Your gonna love it. Just wondering why you cut it up? Should have came out with a bracket off the the allsion removed and the spare tire dropped. So what tuner you use to remove the DPF out of the ECM?

Yeah your right! I did this at like 3am in the morning! So thinking clearly was not an option... And at the time zipping through the pipe at the muffler looked like an easier option than lowering the spare tire and man handling that piece!

On another note wish I would have looked at using a jack to hold the tranmssion in place while dropping the crossmember and easily pulling out the cat down pipe section.. I thought that I could easily zip through the pipe with the reciprocating saw until I found out that is was double wall by the cat... But thats how you learn.. Kinda went into this before reading anything about it! Just saw and heard videos of the amazind sound!

I went with the EFI Live Tune and loving it!

Never had to remove that bracket off the transmission. Just a bracket off the rear of it was all that was needed. A support for the exhaust was all it did on the stock system.

Kool on the EFILive. I love mine through Nick from Duramaxtuner. No clips of my exhaust. To me most of the clips just don;t give it justice. Sound off computers can be bad.
