Hello, I'm trying to remove my muffler and when we installed it I assume it was a tight fit. Cause I cant pull it off due to no room to pull it.. Im trying to push it like to the left or right to hopefully pop it off but it just wiggles.. Like I can see the pipe moving beside the muffler just no length room to pull it .... I don't want to cut it due to possible not liking straight piped lol..

Are you sure it's not on welded hangars? On my old truck the exhaust pipe was welded to the hangars which was welded to some part of the truck (not the frame).

As far as cutting it goes, if you don't like it then you can always snake an exhaust clamp around it and clamp it back. Make sure you get the clamp on so you know that you can before you cut the pipe though.

I got it off....... I got one side off near the tip. Then the inside part connected to the exhaust pipe would not come off... I cut it. I cut to actual pipe too now tho so I'm kind of nervous. I think If I just cut a little further back on the pipe like 1-2 inches it will all be good.. Maybe not even that far. But as of right now I almost regret it cause it's loud.. when we installed my muffler we drove around with it straight piped first and I don't remember it being that loud lol... maybe it will be better coming out the back rather then right under me though... But that's for tomorrow cause I just spent hours on it and I am tired a'f lol

Super late response lol.. but I got it all off and got pipe hooked up shooting it out the back. I can barely hear it now so It's all good. Sounds good when I step on it, and isnt loud in the cab haha. Honestly no drone at all either... Kinda worked out perfect

Yeah I was surprised you were having an issue. I had a Flowmaster 10 series on my '97 which is pretty much a legal straight pipe and I felt it was almost too quiet. I had the 4.6L though.
