Off road x install??

I recently picked up a bunch of parts and one is a pypes off road x. I have Mac axle backs installed on the car now and I'm wondering how hard it'll be to install these in the garage at home, only because I see the down pipe bolts right up by the motor. I know it'll be easier on a lift but I'll just be using a floor jack and wrestle my way around under the car. Any tips or suggestions are appreciated! Click image for larger version

The passenger side is the hardest to get at. I would disconnect the battery for sure because you're working in that area and there's a main fuse coming off the positive terminal that can be shorted easy. Start with that side so if you get stuck at least you're not half way through it with no turning back.

That's what the guy I got them from said lol but he said just like when I did my axle backs if I just drop the over axle pipe it'll make it a lot easier to move it all around, and that the top bolts of the down pipes are the worst so hopefully it isn't too bad lol we'll see

Yup! The bolt on the passenger side is the hardest one to get out if you're not using any power tools lol

I'm gonna pull the battery and battery tray to make some room to just get it from the top side. Hopefully then it'll be smooth lol, hopefully. Excited to hear it with the off road x on, it's loud as hell as it is

I had the macs too. But God dang I hated the drone. It wasn't as bad as some systems are but it was there. The drone makes it seem louder than it really is trust me
