    Someone is selling a used muffler on Craigslist from 2008 Taco 4.0 L with only 500 miles on it for $40.00. I am thinking maybe I should buy this for "future" needs. I have a 07 4.0 Taco TRD Access cab.

    Guy says he upgraded to an afttermarket exhaust. Me? I have no intention of upgrading mine at all as the stock suits me fine. My 07 which was bought in 11/2007 has only 4500 miles on the ODO.

    Do you guys think it is worth the $40 for a very low mileage stock muffler and sit on it until I need it 4 to 5 years down the line?:D

    How much does the genuine Toyota muffler cost?

    On my old X-Runner when I took off my stock exhaust the muffler and tail section was all on piece from the cat back. So this guy is selling just the muffler?

    Even if it is a genuine Toyota Muffler with only 500 miles claimed? :confused:

    Those get tossed out everyday... I know for a fact everytime Ive had a muffler swap on one of my vehicles, I never take home the stock one.

    I don't know that you will ever need it. I kept the stock muffler on my 1999 Tacoma with over 205,000 miles and never changed it. I don't see too many stock mufflers wearing out anymore like they used to.
