If you plan to swap out your General exhaust yourself, get ready to cuss those exhaust bolts, because they are a bit of a pain to take off. It helps a good deal if you know what to remove first. Start by taking the heat shield off the back of the cab, and then cut all the straps that hold the heat shields on the exhaust pipe and manifold. You can then take a socket to them or an Allen wrench if it gets tricky. The exhaust looks like it's welded on and unable to be taken off, but that's just a shoulder weld. The rod slides into a rubber bushing, so to take out the exhaust simply detach the springs and remove the two bolts and it should come right off. You might also want to consider a CYA muffler cover or some titanium exhaust header wrap. Use a scotch brite pad or even an angle grinder with a wire wheel to scrape off all the mud, rust, and other contaminants that have been baked onto the exhaust over the years.
