    Where'd you get the Magnaflow muffler from for only $66 bucks? The cheapest I found it for was $73 dollars & free shipping.

    Also, does anyone know if the type of tip you put on affects the sound or are they just for looks???

    If it doesn't affect the sound, why not save the $$$ and simly use your stock tail pipe??? JMB

    is there any downside to dumping the exhaust under the bed such as exhaust fumes or condensation under the vehicle in cold weather? JMB

    Noup, Just the AFE drop in. Did you get somebody to hit the gas while you were near the exhaust?? How can you tell it doesn't sound good?? Just asking...

    Yeah, it's not a loud muffler while cruising. That's why I like it. Has a really good sound though.

    After talking to my mechanic I've decided NOT to do this install. It's not as simple as I thought it'd be. The Magnaflow muffler is smaller than the stock Toyota muffler. Which means u gotta add pipe. The hangers on the stock muffler are on the muffler. There are no hangers on the Magnaflow muffler. So you have make hangers too. Too much cutting and pasting for my taste. I found the Magnaflow catback exhaust complete for $357 online at MagnaflowDirect.com. (shipping is extra.) I'm gonna go that route instead. JMB

    Not that big of a deal to use a new tail pipe from the muffler back... you can weld hangers on the muffler too...

    the extension is only a couple inches and the shop will put some hangers on it so it shouldnt be a big deal. you'll save nearly $200 doing it this way, up to you though.

    I just installed the magnaflow off-road pro seires on my 2011 Sport. Not sure if I'm 100% in love with it yet. Kinda sounds ricie to me, more than what I've seen and heard before.

    Icon Coilovers, Downsouth UCAs, rear Icon "2.5" shocks and Toytec single AAL. Still gotta do exhaust, dark headlights and re-gear the rear diff.

    Thats precisely what Im trying to avoid...still running stock exhaust after almost 2 years with this truck now. Cant decide what product to get :(
    And most sound clips just dont capture real-life sound well enough.
