Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone had any install videos for a mini maxx and a straightpipe exhaust installation. I want to watch a little before i start doing my own.. also maybe of one takeing the stock exhaust out. Id like to keep it in as good of shape as possible incase i need to put it back in..I looked all over for vid's and couldnt find anything..
Any help is great,

Pull the trans X-member and jack up the rear of the truck under the hitch. Jacking up the rear of the truck will gain you a ton of clearance between the axle tube and box. Split the exhaust after the CAT (4-bolt flange) and pull it all out. Easy as pie.

Spray everything with WD-40 a couple days in advance.

i just did mine sat, i pulled the rear shock off to get the back part of the exhaust out. had air impact wrench so it took no time at all and made it very easy to pull out. i did down pipe on mine and that was some fun. the mini max install is easy as long as you can read directions. just push the one wire through the fire wall and to the fuse it tells you and zip tie everything up. just hope your sd card works in your tuner, mine didnt and it took me forever to get it figured out.
