Anyone install a Borla exhaust?

What's the trick to the tailpipe? Remove rear wheel? Jack the truck up? Bring it to someone?

Tried fishing it through for about 20 minutes in the driveway and gave up as the sun started to go down.

Thanks for any advice.

High jack the rear cross member until the rear wheel almost lifts off the ground. That will give you a little more clearance in the rear suspension area.

Thanks.

Jacking it up made the difference.

All good. Sounds good too.

Though I could use a stock hanger bracket (for muffler) if anybody has one - as the one that was in there was an aftermarket one and didn't line up.

I love borla exhausts. They sound awesome, look great and improve performance. Also adds one more thing to the list of things on your rover that won't rust. I would instal one in a second if the PO hadn't installed a flow master. I'm waiting for it to rot lol.
