    What type of muffler & tailpipe would you recommend for an '03 Tac. 3.4V6 Prerunner?
    Tailpipe is pretty rusted at end. What would be most efficient fix?

    Thanks!

    Depends if you're looking for sound or just an effective muffler. OEM equivalent for my truck was like $350. I told the shop to put a cheapo (around $100) and it's been good for years.

    You'll get into more $$ if you want a performance type muffler though.

    Rust, dents, miles.
    Most of the "performance" mufflers sound like ass on a v6, and the stock replacement aftermarket ones are of questionable quality.

    That said, you can get complete systems on rockauto, I just don't know how long they'll last. It probably depends where you live.

    I'd look on craigslist for oem takeoffs of the whole system. I bet someone with welding skills could make something from a newer truck fit.

    I had what amounted to a motor home muffler on my old Turbo 4Runner. Lot's of flow, good sound, lol... Local shop threw it together for my brother when he owned it.

    You could throw a magnaflow on there if you really wanted to, but IMO just go to the local muffler shop and have them throw together whatever they have in stock for you. These aren't high horsepower motors...

    If you don’t want a louder exhaust just check craigslist for an OEM exhaust. They can be found for pretty cheap
