They kept it the same at 2.5" since I made that mistake thinking that the TRD was still 2.25" when I ordered my resonator lol I'm a 2011 so I'm sure it hasn't changed much in the 12's+

That I would have to check on. I did some research and considered buying an exhaust from an online store. The trouble is I don't have a lift or a welder, so I just had the dealership do it when I bought it. I have the old system, so I can see. The specs say a 8HP gain, and 1-2 MPG gain. I can say the HP is true. Plus is sounds great. The dealer charges about $100 more than if you can do it yourself: http://trdparts4u.toyotaofdallas.com...dProduct=-9567

Is the TRD cat back only available for 05+?

No official trd cat back exhaust prior to 05'. This site looks like it has some after market exhaust systems y hat would give the same performance: http://www.carid.com/toyota-tacoma-exhaust-systems/
