    Idk, but I don't think so.not the deeper throatier sound your looking for. They pretty much all have that raspy sound, v6 anyway. Not saying trd is best by any means but it steers away from the rice mobile sound the most, even though I still think it sounds rice rocketish.
    Good luck.

    You gotta let the exhaust break in a bit too. New, mine sounded that way also but over time it has gotten better in tone for sure. TRD all the way.

    I put on an MBRP cat-back dual system in stainless and used two Vibrant resonators in the head pipe. Sounds great, no rasp or drone, and truly glorious under full throttle. There's no extra power involved in just a cat-back system and your only pay-back is the tone and look, but I'm satisfied.

    I'm happy with my TRD exhaust. After a few thousand miles of breaking in it's mellowed out real well.

    I recommend the borla exhaust. Has a nice deep rumble for a v6 when accalerating.

    I just put in a TRD Exhaust not to long ago on my 13. I think it sounds pretty good and not ricey. And you won't really gain any power with just a cat-back. It all really comes down to sound and after listening to all the clips I gave in and got the TRD. It seems pretty popular on here and I like the sound.

    Although a borla cat back was a close second.

    I just installed (yesterday) flowmaster catback (DBX series I think), single sweep out to the right side on my '14 DCLB Sport. After installation, I thought it sounded good. Today is the first day I've had the truck out on the road. I have to admit that the "drone" as some of you call it in the cab was getting on my nerves at low RPMs. I'm hoping I get used to it OR that the system will settle in or mellow out a bit with time. JUry's out on this one. I've had Gibson exhausts on other trucks in the past and liked them.

    I didn't like the drone on my DCLB after initially installing the MBRP cat-back dual system, so I installed one of these in the front head pipe:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vibrant-114...Parts_Accessories&hash=item540640cd67&vxp=mtr

    It made a considerable difference. There's a YouTube video with a Tacoma and MBRP both before and after adding the resonator if you want to hear the difference that owner recorded. It's not specific to the drone, but you can get the idea. Here's a link to the video:

    Thanks for the suggestion but the pisser is, if I cut the head pipe to install a resonator...BANG...I'm out another $100 AND there goes my lifetime warranty from Flowmaster on a stainless steel system....
