The egr is fairly easy to replace. Drain some coolant, unbolt it.
My suggestion would be not to replace it.

Unplug it instead and pay somebody with EFI live to change your EGR diagnostics to "not reported". This way you will not get a CEL. I have not purchased an EFI licence in a while, but last check they were $100 per truck. (IMO, cheaper than replacing the egr and better for the truck)
