I just installed the profab DP. It seem like a great pipe very heavy. I lifted the front of the cab up about 1 1/2. The down pipe was easer for me to install than the dame EGR blocker.

What is involved in lifting the cab? My mechanic at the dealership said it is easier to lift the cab to do those things. I'm not convinced.

They are nice, I am happy with mine, holding up fine, built really well. Bitch to put in tho. I cheated, had the tranny out.

I just did the egr delete on my 07 and put the lb7 up pipe in and it wasnt that bad (imo) for me the worst part was the upper dipstick nut . I pulled the tube out and kept the d/pipe close to the frame and wiggled it right out and put it back in the same way . also take the d/p heat shield out through the top wiggling it past the turbo .

It wasnt bad at all to lift the cab just loosen all the cab support and jack the cab up but dont forget to loose the core supports also. On the NBS everything has to come out the bottom. Even after lifting the cab I wasnt able to take the heatshield off the turbo. I propped it up so my arm could fit between the shield and the turbo.

Remove the bolts holding the cab to the frame and use a jack to lift it!
