    Does anyone know where to buy them or atleast look up pricing other than direct from their own site. Also does anyone have the setup on their 05-07 4.0?

    One thing I am torn on right now with buying an exhaust for my truck is ending up with something that sounds like a fart can on some of the V6 import tuner cars.

    Banks told me today that they are having a sale on their catbacks for the 4.0. They are $499.00 including free shipping.

    Ok, so it sounds good, but how does it perform? Did you do the install yourself? Welding required?

    I did install it myself, install was very easy since i had the use of a lift. I can see uninstalling the stock exhaust possibly being problematic just on ramps, but you might be able to manuever it off. Install of the Banks exhaust was cake. I had it all done in about 20 minutes. No welding is required. It uses clamp fittings. The exhaust is 3 sections. I may eventually have the sections welded together, but for now there is no leaks. It seems to perform very well. I was a bit disappointed with my truck after installing the TRD intake, but it seems to have freed up some power all around with the exhaust.

    Does anybody have a sound clip of the Banks system. I have a 06 double cab and am interested in the Banks system but would like to hear it before I buy.

    Thanks

    How does the Banks exhaust performance rank with Borla or Magnaflow, anyone know? I have the TRD CAI also, how does it sound with the Banks?

    The Banks p/n 48137 exhaust says it fits double cab short bed or access cab long bed 2005-07. Does anyone know if I can make this fit my 08 access cab standard bed?

    Did you notice any significant performance gains? HP, MPG?

    Are sure it would fit? I'm going to get one but I wanted to make sure. The guy I'm buying it from wasn't sure if it would fit.
