To answer your question, no, the dealer does not need to install any catback exhaust to maintain your warranty. It's not cut and dry that they(dealer/mfgr) 100% WON'T EVER deny a powertrain failure warranty claim because you installed an aftermarket catback, but the burden is more on them to prove the failure was directly caused by the catback.

Toyota will more than likely not void your warranty for an aftermarket catback....UNLESS they can prove that it was the cause for failure for any powetrain warranty claim---like your stock engine blows up after installing it[highly unlikely]. Being that it comes AFTER the catalytic converters(aka not modifying any factory emissions equipment), it shouldn't pose as an issue at the dealer. I have yet to see an aftermarket exhaust(usually LESS restrictive than stock) proven to be the culprit of a warranty issue on the powertrain side.....now, one exception COULD be trying to warranty a burnt quarter panel or something aesthetic which in that case your warranty claim would be denied because the aftermarket exhaust caused it.

Some dealer service departemtns are more picky than others. With that said, caveat emptor.

Too much plate hanging off of too little steel, or did you smack something?

its why anyone with a winch should have an extra mount that goes back to the frame to prevent the bumper from pulling/flexing off the mount.......


in theory too much bumper for such a little mount, we trimmed the mount right off took an 1/8" off the frame and added a 1/4" plate there instead itll be fully welded top to bottom + adding some bracing the frame at this point in order to prevent frame damage, I also have a new mount to go on to clamp the bumper further back to the frame


is it over kill yes, is it needed you bet

Sounds good. Look forward to seeing the final structural photos.
What prompted you to strip it down to the mounts?

Hand washed and dried via towel. Only 91 degrees with no wind so it wasn't too bad.

My bumper has a couple of straps that come back to the frame for exactly this purpose
