    Here’s the Part# for the Exhaust Gasket,
    I suggest swapping in a new one.

    The torque setting is 35ft lbs for the mounting bolts.

    Not sure if these would work, they may as that bolt has a little bit of flat edge on it. Lots of different sets on Amazon find one that'll fit.

    Blame a company for not having issues with their bed bolts on an install video because you did? Seems about right

    I had no issues breaking loose with a 18” breaker bar leaning over the tailgate feet on ground.

    I did this install today too but didn’t have that much rust on that specific flange. Now the flange at the other end of the y under drivers side cat looks like it’s all fused together.

    Stock gasket was toast imo (it’s cheap enough there’s no reason you shouldn’t change it out). I took a wire brush to remove as much scale/loose rust as I could and cleaned it up before putting the new gasket on

    You could definitely manage/fight the removal/install with 1 person but you’d likely be banging against everything. I had the ol lady give me a hand and we managed it relatively easy weaving it in, around and out. We actually had fun

    The hanger pliers were f’n great (with the addition of soapy water squirts). If you don’t have the instruction sheet- go get it and follow the order of removal so your not fighting it. I did lift it up as high as my stands would go and lowered the diff (watch your lines); removed the spare also.

    I torqued it down to 35 and evenly but noticed this gap… anyone know if this is normal?

    What's the weight rating on those wheels? I'd make sure they can support the vehicle or you'll be in for a crushing surprise.

    So. Driving lights not fogs. Packing slip said fogs. But the inner packaging confirmed driving.

    Sure doesn’t look it. Were the faces flat when you started?
    Is it leaking?
