TRD exhaust install question

Do I need to use any sort of sealant or anything when I put the new exhaust on? I was going to pay 80 bucks for the dealer to put it on, but after reading how easy it is, I think I'm just going to do it myself.

Nope. Just bolt it on. Any gaskets should be included unless it says to use the old ones.

I wouldn't re-use exhaust gaskets. I bet the TRD exhaust came with new gaskets...

It didn't come with any instructions/gaskets/box or anything. The place I ordered it from wrapped the tip and slapped the fedex label right on the muffler. I'm just trying to find out if I need to stop and pick anything up before I take the stock muffler off.

I would definitely get new exhaust gaskets. You can re-use exhaust gaskets, however they might end up leaking. Exhaust leaks will make your TRD exhaust sound like crap. If you spend the money on TRD exhaust, I would highly suggest getting new exhaust gaskets...

Get an OEM gasket and some copper RTV. Use a thin layer of Copper RTV on the gasket surfaces, and connect the exhaust.

I just put my TRD exhaust on myself about a month ago. I didn't get a new gasket and the old one seems to work fine for now, no leaks.
Just my 2 cents.

You should still use a new gasket. The flange on teh exhaust has some texturing on it, and it will be a little different from the stock exhaust to the TRD. Just because it seals up for the time being, doesnt mean leaks wont develop later. Like mentioned above, you spent the extra cash on the TRD exhaust, take a few bucks and get a new gasket.

A new gasket sounds like a good idea. I re-used the original one on the truck and haven't had any issues...there were only a few thousand miles on it at the time.
I installed mine in the driveway; it was a snap.
I jacked up the passenger side, letting the rear axle hang and did the swap. I left the wrapping on the tip so not to scratch it.

Your truck is new enough you shouldn't need a new gasket. When I bought my truck back in 06 I put the TRD exhaust on before 1k and it was a simple bolt on. I didn't buy a new gasket or anything. I now have 70k and haven't had any problems. Its def worth saving yourself the $80.00 and doing it yourself.

I bought mine from the dealer, no instuctions, no new gasket. Just removed the stock one and installed the new, no problems. It took me a couple of hours total. My truck is a 2010 and gasket was fine. Leave the tip wrapped while you install so you don't scratch up.
