4 hours plus some hardware and extra work

First off the exhaust sounds great, and I can tell a difference in the responsiveness of my truck. I have a friend with shop so I had access to a lift which is always a plus. A couple small complaints that I had with the kit. 1. the muffler resonators did not fit in the main pipe. I guess they forgot to bell the end tubes on my kit on both ends so I had to take the mufflers to a shop in the area and have them flare out the mufflers so they would slip over the end tubes. 2. I decided to go with self tapping screw to mount the hangers. 3. I was only given one hanger in the kit when it deserved two. Went to Napa before the job and got some extra hangers and clamps just in case. 4. So the hanging bar on the y pipe needed to be bent a little for it to send the pipe in direction I needed it to go. I had used of a vice and a hammer to get it right. One of the mufflers sits out 1" further than the other, but that's my fault. I am going to have to go back and put a slight bend in the ends if I want to make the angle dead on, but it's barely noticeable. For the Price it's a great kit, but it takes some figuring out while you under there doing it. Just make sure the mufflers fit on the tubes, you have all your hangers and clamps, and you buy some heavy duty self tappers to mount to your frame. I would even suggest taking the rear tires off to make it easier to get to the frame. I didn't do this but wished that I did.
