there were 3 used ones at the dealership near Colma Bart.

i think one was stickered at $23k. all three are silver.

Heck can you get away with it bolted to the skid plate? That is if your going to keep that skid plate awhile. I flat blacked mine so it didn't stand out.

FJ Exhaust

If you buy it, forget the TRD exhaust. Get a MagnaFlow cat back kit. Much better performance, and sound ;-).

Oh he bought it waiting for it to arrive had to have it shipped from east to west. By the way OP I mentioned my poor gas mpg. Well I found the fix on fjcruiserforums.com Apparently older models have weak thermostats. I had dropped to 200 miles a tank! Just changed it two days ago I now have 150.9 miles on a half tank!! I picked housing and all up at dealer for 43bucks. Just something to keep your eye on.
