Rather have a muffler shop do it!!
After working under my truck for 2 hours I put the original exhaust back on and took the Magnaflow to the muffler shop. This cost me an additional $150 to fit.

My converter arrived within one week via free standard shipping. The most difficult part of the installation, of course was getting the old rusty parts off.

It seems to be a quality built unit with nice welds. I expect it to last for many years.
