    I just tried intalling a 3a exhaust tip on my tacoma and failed. :eek:

    Every time I tried tightening the screws it would either misalign or just not screw in right. I may have even stripped the screws.

    Has anyone ever installed one of these things. They seem to be a major PITA!

    Not exactly from walmart, more like Autozone (I work there, or else I wouldn't shop their :D)

    Actually it looks very nice so far, no pics yet, soon though.

    I was finally able to get it on after I went into my bin of random screws and found better ones than what came with it. The ones with it were a POS!

    I'm not sure I am up for that. lol

    However I am thinking now that maybe I bought it too big. Like it says its meant for trucks and it expands to 3.5"

    However when I put it on, there is quite a bit of space around it.

    How big is the stock pipe?
