I hope they still have this deal in a couple of months. Post up some pics if you have them!

Yeah, I want that Intake too. But I wonder what kind of magnaflow muffler would be good as well.

Unfortunately all I took was a side-by-side. I'll try to remember to take a pic of it on the truck tomorrow. What you see is exactly how they shipped it. Kind of odd but no dents or scratches. All that was on it was a piece of cardboard around the tip for protection. I found it easier to put the rubber hangers on the exhaust rather then leave them on the truck mounts and fight with exhaust+hangers under the truck.

15 minutes. That ez? How does that price compare to the group buy?

Very useful info, Kernel. Thanks!

No one was able to get a group buy setup and I've been itching to do something to the truck...forum is helping me keep the economy going. Local dealer wanted list @ $495. trdparts4u was at $390 w/o shipping. All in all I think it would be hard to find a better deal than what shoptrd is offering.

Yes it really was that easy. I had a buddy help guide it over the rear axle while I held the front portion. Another set of hands makes the install much simpler.

I wonder if my local dealer would match shoptrd's price? I'll have to ask them.

I didn't find any but it was really simple. Remove the two bolts, Remove the rubber hangers, and then thread the exhaust up and over the rear axle. Install is pretty much the reverse.

A few tips:
After removing the front bolts I used what ever was laying around to prop the exhaust up. In my case, an old box. Kept it from sagging/falling on me while I undid the rubber pieces holding it up.
2) I removed the rubber hangers off the frame of the truck instead of the exhaust. I then moved them from the old to the new cat back. I found it much easier to attach them to the frame mounts rather than fight the exhaust, if that makes sense.
3) if you have trouble sliding the rubber pieces off, try using dish soap and water or some other lubricant. I used a can of silicone spray lube. Worked great.
4) Have a friend help move it over the rear axle. Pay attention to the brake lines/etc as not to damage them.

Note: I did this without jacking up the truck. There is plenty of clearance at the stock height, I do however have the TSB leafs.

I think this is pretty much dead now. Shoptrd seems to be the lowest online vendor unless you can get your local dealer to price match.

shoptrd is the lowest you will find around. I received mine on Friday and had it installed about 20 minutes later. I was way disappointed of how they shipped it, mine didn't even have a cover on the chrome exhaust tip. It did have a tiny 1/2" size dent in the top of the tip but it was far back enough you can't even see it.
