Question about Removing Factory Tail Pipe

I'm running the DPF/CAT delete on my 2010 F250 Shortbed and am starting to Hate the look of the funky exhaust tips. I'd like to remove the stock tail pipe/exhaust resonator/tip assembly and replace with an aftermarket unit.

Can the factory tail pipe assembly be removed without cutting it and/or without the use of a lift? I want to save it for warranty work or the next purchaser.

Would you recommend having a local muffler shop build the new tail pipe or purchasing an aftermarket unit? It appears that most of the aftermarket pipes have "vents" on or near the tip and since I don't regenerate, I don't need this feature or like the looks of it.

Since I trade trucks every 1 to 2 years, do I need to spend the extra $$$ for stainless steel or just go with aluminized steel? I live in West Texas where it is dry.

Mine was cut. I think you may be able to get it off without cutting, but I think most people drop the passenger rear shock to make it easier, which isn't to bad.

I would go with an aluminized system since you probably won't have to many run ins with salted roads. I think Flo-Pro makes a DPF back kit without vents. AFE may as well. I think there is one DPF back unit available that has the vents under the truck and not at the tip. Can't remember if it's Banks or Gibson. I would just do some searching and vendor contacting!

Ughhhh!!! I hate double posting!

Has anyone else noticed this site being RRRREEEEEAAAAALLLLLLLLYYYYYYYY slow lately? The reason I say this site is because I frequent about 5 other forums...nightly (I know, I'm a loser).....and none of them are as slow as TDG.

Put a floor jack under the receiver hitch on the back of the truck, and jack it up until your suspension is maxed out right before your rear tires come off the ground and you should have enough room between the truck and the axle to snake the tail pipe through there without cuttin it

You're right, this site has been super-slow for a few days now.

How can you be a loser with a good looking kid like that?

That is your kid in your Avatar?
