    5ish years ago my catalytic converter got stolen and well the new one throws code occasionally but is constantly rattling bad. I was wondering if there were any reasonably priced ones i could go with that knowing our trucks are picky with them

    Edit: before someone asks it is out of warranty per miles

    If you want to spend some $$ I'd get a magnaflow. They have oem replacements for our trucks.

    I did both my cats with magnaflows, rear was direct fit, front was universal... if you can weld id just do the universal they list for our trucks. its the same cat as the Direct fit, just without all the mounts and flanges... 4 years without any codes from mine.. And no rattling that I've noticed.

    My 98 4runner had the sawzall issue from some jerkoff. Wake up in morning and start up and have open exhaust. They used a DeWalt blade. I Ebayed high flow cat from Magnaflow weld in. $100. Ran 100k on the cat, no issues, just was a bit louder sound
