Step 1: (Read Instructions prior to installation). It may be helpful to lubricate all the isolation rubber mounts, before uninstalling and installing exhaust. NOTE: This system will only fit Regular-cab/Short-bed & Regular-cab/Long-bed. Always use a Jack or Stand to support muffler when installing or uninstalling any exhaust system. Remove your one piece stock exhaust. Take caution not to damage the factory front flange bolts and isolation mounts as they will be reused. It is recommended to not fully tighten any of the clamps until the entire system has been fully installed.
Step 2: For faster installation spread the pieces of the exhaust alongside of your vehicle according to the diagram shown.
Step 3: First install the flared front pipe; it will require reusing the original OE band clamp. You will have to release the locking tab with a small screwdriver. Place OE band clamp over front pipe but do not fully tighten the clamp down.
Notes– On 8.2 ft. beds extension pipe will be required:
SC/SB, 6.2 Ft Bed, 119" Wheelbase No Extension pipe required
SC/LB, 8.2 Ft Bed, 133" Wheelbase 17" Extension pipe (05-144170) required
Step 4: Slide the front part of muffler into the rear of the mid-pipe or extension pipe depending on your wheelbase. Then slip the rear hangers of the muffler into the OE rubber isolations.
Step 5: Install the “Right” passenger side tailpipe first. But do not fully tighten.
Step 6: Now install the Hanger Bracket included with the kit. As shown on (figure A).
Unbolt the OE nuts & bolts using a 19m deep socket on the bottom side and a 19m wrench on the top. Fully tighten the hanger bracket to the frame using the OE nuts and bolts.
