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.
