ztman, I had already watched that video. The truck was a desiel model, four wheel drive, and raised. The person was using a lift and had air tools. It appeared that parts had little rustl, so they all came off easily. But, it was helpful. Thanks for the tip.
Colli ... Thanks, ... your post is what I was looking for. I was tracking, until "... need a helper." Do you make this suggestion because having help is a necessity, or makes the job lots easier? I suspect the muffler could be quite heavy -- it is long and large diameter. Holding the weight, getting it positioned right for the connection could be difficult. Is this where the helper is needed?
Your post may have killed the job for me. I am by myself, with no helper. By now, most of my friends are walking with canes, having trouble getting out of a chair, and are at least 50# overweight. Yea, yea, ... I like them alot, but that is reality. Expecting them to lay down under my truck is beyond expectations.
