If stock exhaust is a 2 on the 1-10 scale, how's the TRD?

    I'm thinkin of asking for the TRD exhaust for my B-day but I want to make sure I'm going to get a good rumble from it. I don't want anything loud cuz it's our traveling vehicle. just a little growl is all! So what do you TRD Exhaust owners and former owners think?

    Not stock.
    I've got the Banks exhaust and its got a nice low growl on the highway. Not sure of the price difference between Banks and TRD, but giving you another option. Bolts up easy and looks good too. I also have a drop in AFE and it breaths nice.

    if stock is 2, and say a super 40 is a 10...then

    at idle id say its a 6,
    light throttle slow cruising maybe a 4,
    regular highway or interstate maybe 2.5,
    full throttle high rpm 2

    really, i only notice a sound difference at idle to maybe 1200-1500rpm range, anything much over that it sounds pretty much stock to me

    I do. The Dynomax is a better performance muffler than the TRD. I got the TRD for free. How can I pass it up?

    The TRD sounds like a perfect exhaust for you. Its only loud when you get on it. At idle you can't really hear any grumble at all. After I added my TRD CAI I would say it got a little louder at idle and probably 2 levels higher when getting on it.
