    "None" is nice and cheap. Won't fall off either. ;)

    Don't mind me. I cut mine off just behind the last hanger so it wouldn't get smashed on rocks.

    None is best! But I want to help the economy. Oh yeah, it has to be made in the U.S.A.

    Do you have any pics of this? I'm interested in doing this, but I was thinking the heat from the exhaust might be a problem with the composite bed if the truck wasn't wasn't moving.

    I did not have one on my 2005 Tacoma and the paint just above the tail pipe turned black and no amount of scrubbing would get it off. I put a tip on my 2008 Tacoma and problem solved.

    I picked up a stainless one at Advance for about 1/4 of what Toyota wanted for one. It looks the same and so far is lasting very well.

    Never had a problem and I've had this setup for almost a year now.

    I'm almost positive that I bought it at Advance auto parts but I went to their website and could not find one.
    It looks like this one:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00029J0M8
    but I cannot say for sure thats it.

    I did have to cut a little off of the tail-pipe to make it fit the way I wanted it too.
