Those concerns are perfectly logical for off road trucks, but mine is a street truck and never sees dirt, and I live in Southern California so the snow issue is pretty unlikely.

Surprizingly not. It's exactly as silent as if it had the rest of the pipe all the way out the rear quarter. I'll make a little video later today and edit it into this post so that you can hear it.

edit:

Here's the video...

You don't hear any of this in the cab because there are no low frequencies passing through the muffler. However, you do hear the three foot long intake under the hood.

I recently received my TRD and installed it. I am very happy with it. It definitely makes it louder than stock but not obnoxious. It has a nice "deep and throaty" sound. It gets plenty loud when I step on it, but is also fairly mellow when cruising through the neighborhood at night. I am going to try and make a video that actually captures the sound and will hopefully be adding it here soon.

Add another vote for Flowmaster.

I swapped the stock muffler with the Flowmaster Super 50 Delta Flow. She sounds beefy when idling, and roars when you kick the gas. Volume wise? Not much louder than stock. And virtually no cabin drone.

Stock



Flowmaster

Borla makes some of the best mufflers we have seen build wise. Magnaflow are decent as well.

had magnaflow muffler but it got a little too loud for me

switched to dynomax super turbo and couldnt be happier. first couple months seemed like it was a little louder than stock. after a couple months of break in, it has gotten deeper. LOVE IT! and only about $50 for the muffler and $45 to weld/install

2011 V6 long bed 4 door. I have 3inch pipe with the 50 series flowmaster cat-back and not happy with it.

I think 3 inch is way to big for a V6 engine smaller pipe might make it sound better but plans to change the entire set up headers and all are to come sooner than later

Hey guys Just bought a '13 v6 access cab last Friday. I think Borla is going to be my choice of muffler. Can anyone confirm that is the right size 2.25" and also I want center/center inlet/outlet for a direct fit?

I have a Dynomax Super Turbo muffler swap. Had it for about 2 years and love it. Not too loud, but yet not quiet...no drone.

Reason I chose what I did was from a write up by I believe Chris 4x4; anyway it explained that you got the most gain with hp, flow, and needed backpressure for our engine. I'm sure that thread is still on here somewhere. I have no complaints whats so ever.

Video's on YouTube somewhere...

Ya def gotta be careful.

While n/a with long tube headers urd y pipe and the mk2 3" exhaust, my low end tq seemed pathetic.

I too agree that 3" is too big for our n/a v6
