Gents, I have a 2012 2500 HD crew cab I have installed the DPF delete but was unsuccessful when it came to removing the CAT. I was wondering what is the best way to remove the CAT & the down pipe. Getting to the turbo clamp is no problem, it's just a very tight fit to get the CAT out past the cross-members. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Support the transmission and remove the trans cross member, 10 Minute job. Getting this bracket off the trans as well eases it all out in one shot.

Either get a sawz all or remove crossmember, I think a few guys have had luck with other ways. If you are not planning on running old exhaust I'd cut it!

Sawzall. Downpipe doesn't take sawzall, that just takes 13mm (short handled) ratchet, mirror on a stick, and patience. And of course more than one person. And don't try to remove the heat shield first - it all comes out together.
