Installing intake and exhaust

I just ordered an aFe intake kit and Magnaflow exhaust and I was wondering how difficult these items are going to be to install. I have done exhaust before and it involved cutting the old system in order to get it off, is this the case with the JK?

Any lessons learned would be great, thanks!

The intake is a piece of cake. Just remember that the easiet way to reach the nuts that go on the bottom of the heat shield is through the fender splash shields. I don't believe you would have to cut the JK exhaust, but I'm not 100% sure.

If you ever think about Bushwacker fender flares, they are a pain in the backside.

The intake is super easy I installed the aem and the exhaust is also easy too install its all clamps and rubber exhaust hangers. Just get you a good lubricant to spray into the hangers so its a little easier to get the old exhaust unhooked other than that its all clamps no cutting or welding involved. Did mine in the driveway with a ratchet and a can of lithium grease. I installed the borla cat back but the magna flow should be the same install.
