I understand it's a somewhat common problem on the 3.0L's with their rearwardest cat(the last one). Only fix is cut and replace with new.

I would probably just say "to hell with it" and cut off the exhaust at each downpipe, run straight downpipes, don't even waste your time with the Y-pipe.

Just kidding.

im not sure of the year or mileage of your truck other than a '04+ but the emissions warranty should be something like 5yr/80k so it may be a free fix @ the stealership
