removal of stock exhaust

For those of you that didnt want to cut your stock exhaust pipe to get it out.... how did you get it out? Jack the body up a little to create room by the rear axle, then take the whole system out from the rear? If all else fails, would a tailpipe cutter do the trick?

since you have and 11', our exhaust is welded with the exception of where the rear cat meets the flex pipe...

quickest bet is just to take a sawzaw to the tail pipe section, and just before the muffler. Then unbolt the flex pipe from the cat, and you have a 3 piece removal...

thats what I would do atleast...

Well, the stock system on my '06 had been modded with a blowmaster by the previous owner ...but it was still one piece. I could have gotten the thing out whole by removing the spare tire, rotating it slightly (possible with the spare removed) and pulling it forward and out the passenger side ....except ....I found my newest ride missing it's jack. DOH! :o And all this from the "comfort" of my creeper ala Leonardo DaVinci.

Had to hacksaw the pipe ...and call the dealer from whom I bought the truck and get my jack.
I'm not so much a smart guy as a guy smart enough to know how to find out....
