    That happens alot. They target Tacomas because of their ground clearance. They steal them and sell the precious metal on the inside. I forgot what it is but its expensive. I'm a police officer in Florida and I alone have done 2 reports on Tacomas. :mad:

    Thats fine and dandy but what if they're armed. Do you really want to bring a paintball gun to a fire fight? IDK, I guess its just me. I think about these things.

    y-pipe was 300. got the magnaflow set up for 200. but im sure you can get it cheaper by just replacing your muffler with a magnaflow instead of gettin the catback

    It happens here all the time. There is platinum inside some of the converters and recyclers pay 150-250 a piece for them up here. They typically pick trucks and or SUV's because they can get under them easily. One dealership her got hit on something like 75 new vehicles... OUCH

    They need to require recyclers by law to keep records of who turns them in.
