Install would be better on a lift or at the very least with a friend helping you rather than a garage floor by yourself but that's on me for not waiting for help. If you're by yourself you can still do the install but it'll take a good 2.5 to 3 hours with no jack or lift under it so i'd say get a buddy to help you because lining it up evenly was what took the longest. I will also suggest you use an impact as my battery powered one was a life saver when it came to tightening the clamps down enough to squeeze the outer pipe down good and tight onto the slip in piece. For the price though I'm ok with the added headache at install over a bolt on kit that'll cost hundreds more. The muffler I was sent had the 3" opening for the midpipe centered rather than offset like the install video I saw but I was able to make it work just the same maybe just a little off from being straight though. I didn't much care for the hanger clamps as I believe they could have left more of a gap between the height adjusting nut and the clamp nut because getting a socket on it wasn't working out too well so it was easier to use a open end wrench just took longer. I also didn't receive any of the correct hardware as I got the right washer and bolt for the added hanger but then got a second short bolt, one nylon nut, no washers, and then a screw that looks like a lag screw for wood? Luckily I watched the American Trucks install video and they mention buying your own hardware anyways since the ones they got were too short so I already had my own hardware purchased. Two of the pipes had small dents on the ends of the opening but luckily the one was on the midpipe that I had to cut down anyways. At the end of the day I'm still happy with my purchase and the sound is great. The fitment of everything is good as there is no rattling or anything hitting and even at highway cruising speeds I can still have a conversation inside the truck but when you put your foot down it gets good and loud.
