    Ok so love this site and was here years ago since this 1997 extra cab Tacoma has only been owned by me since new!!! Hell ya!!! Anyway did search here and no luck, but some moron cut off the catalytic converter exactly where I need to pretty much replace the whole thing. Did a fast piecemeal job just before cold so I'm looking for a "decent" aftermarket the right lengths. OE will be way over but a total of $800 I can do-that's with new O2's and downpipe.

    ouch, didn't think they still did this. unless recycle material is worth $$

    looks like you need new 2nd cat (can't tell if there is one above that flange) and mid-pipe

    You can find an aftermarket cat for $50 of any diameter. I think stock is 2.25". Having a shop weld it in shouldn't be over $150 including extra pipe.

    And that's pretty funny. What's the story? Someone stole it? Door to door in the night with a sawsall stocking up on cats?

    Yeah they hit a lot of people frizzman for the cat(heard it on the news even though they were located 100ish mikes north). There are 2 O2's and the rest cut is too close to the weld so I chopped it and saved that one before the rig job. The other cut they did is on a curved part of the pipe. Anyway it took em about 5-10 minutes max to get it cut while I was in a Dr.'s parking lot-no cameras. When I look at aftermarket parts they don't say for base, 4x4, or extra cab so it kinda messes up what to get and where. The funny part is that it took about 8 stupid small pieces just to fill that length for now, there wasn't any other way w snow coming a few months back. Runs like crap without a cat maybe a back pressure deal? I do know the pipes are 2 1/4" as you said so working on buying it all piecemeal if some site explains exactly what model it's for! Thanks for the input, thought someone may have done this already here(read a few about how much exhaust work sucked and other issues putting it all in).

    Thanks Clay I'll look through summit but I know it'll be 10x's easier with a cat that has the flanges and they're out there. Hate throwing a ton of $ on a pipe set and it's not even for a 4x4! All my looking has been useless so far in that respect. I think when they sawzalled it they may have loosened up the downpipe. The cat itself really needs the hanger brackets already on. I'll update sometime if I find the right parts for others. What a PITA!
    Ok just checked Summit out and at least they're more specific on fit so this may do it with the cat and extra pipe. Helps a lot Clay https://m.summitracing.com/parts/jba-40-9012

    yes
    As said, an exhaust shop should be able to install a new universal cat on the cheap with the proper hangers. Save yourself the time and effort :)

    I use all Walker Exhaust

    It bolts up nice is not overly expensive

    I look up my Part Numbers on Walkers Site then shop around for the best price to the door

    One needs to look at shipping costs every time

    One thing I did learn over the years is don`t try and Mix Exhaust manufactures parts unless you plan on custom making some parts .

    It seems there is sometimes a slight difference enough to cause major frustration and stringing new combinations of words together

    I get Prime free shipping so it works for me. I get so much crap from Amazon that the membership pays for itself. Plus I buy Amazon gift cards from Giant Eagle to get Fuel Perks :D
