Unless you consider your SSR to be highly collectible and needing to be stock, much simpler to replace with an aftermarket exhaust system. An 05 system on an 03 may or may not be considered stock.
The stock exhaust will need to be cut in a number of spots and rewelded after it is in place. To install a stock exhaust system intact requires a lot of work, including removing the entire rear axle assembly. Unless the original truck was completely disassembled prior to exhaust removal, there will likely be several cuts involved.
Aftermarket systems are precut, typically with slip joints and stainless couplers.
When I replaced the stock system with Mike in AZ's true dual system, I was surprised at the degree of difficulty getting the old system off with minimal cuts. I think we ended up with 4 cuts, in spite of an effort to minimize damage.
Mike can probably give you more accurate information. I'm sure he was involved in disassembly when he was designing his true dual system. That system is no longer available, so don't bug Mike about coming up with some new inventory. He has enough other projects on his plate.
Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all
