    Anyone have one? AutoAnything.com has some good prices (and free shipping) that rival the TRD system. Looks like a decent system but would like to hear some feedback from fellow TC members.

    i have an aero turbine muffler with the stock tail pipe and a four inch tip on my 07 and it sounds almost as good as the banks. i talked to a few muffler shops and they told me that the banks exhaust was running too big of diameter pipe to keep the proper back pressure for our 4.0. i would suggest the aero turbine 2525 muffler. it is polished stainless steel and has a great tone to it. it comes in two choices. resonated or non resonated

    I have had my banks exhaust for over a year and love it. It has a nice tone to it and i know you will not be sorry. The only thing i noticed was the hangers rusting a little but im sure if i sprayed them they would be fine. I also noticed additional power after adding it. Hope that helps.

    I've had one for a year also and it's great. I've had no trouble just a nice sound and a little more punch. Especially when I pull my travel trailer. Easy to install also.

    Regarding the banks exhaust, what was the installation procedure? Thanks!

    The Toyota exhaust is all one piece so pulling it out is the hardest part of the whole procedure. The Monster exhaust comes in three sections using u-bolts to connect. All the hangers are preinstalled so its just a matter of bolting it on. Hope this helps.
