    Most systems are just catbacks and can be installed in about 30 mins and you shouldn't even need a jack. Maybe a ratchet some sockets and a flathead to move it around.

    I went to a shop for my magnaflow. They let me in the bay to watch them put it on.
    I only paid $35 (shop owner knows me), but it only took him 20 minutes, and that included taking the old exhaust off.

    The stock exhaust is a one-piece, and once you unbolt it in the front you can pry it from the rubbers keeping it hanging under the truck.
    My new exhaust came as a 3 piece. Once they bolted the front part back they hung the back pipe, and used two hose clamps (came with it) to hook both pipes to the what-ever-ya-call-it in the middle. Piece of cake if you have enough clearance to work under your truck.

    You may need PB Bust if you do it at home. Ramps will make it super easy.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    Do it yourself. Installing a cat-back is super easy, a few bolts to remove, some penetrating lube to get the old one off, then just bolt the new cat-back together onto the truck. They usually come in 3 pieces: tube from cat to muffler, the muffler, then the rear portion that goes over the axle and dumps out the side of the truck.

    K&N drop in filter, Magnaflow Exhaust, Billet grille. All 4 Bilstien 5100s. Fronts set at 2.5". Rear 2" AAL.
    I think the better question is "Who HASN'T installed an aftermarket exhaust"
