    Ordered a WickedFlow Max 13" Muffler 2.25"D and had it put on today. Stopped in to see James and he had me set up right away. He was able to hold the part for me overnight and remembered exactly who I was and what I wanted done when I walked in the door. Service was very prompt and friendly! Everyone that came in made sure I had been taken care of and in general were very polite and asked me how I was doing. GREAT shop, I will be taking my truck there regarding any other issues I have. Prices were awesome too and took them under and hour to have my muffler on. Highly recommend the Truck shop if you're in the SD area. They are a full service shop and specialize in Toyotas. They even honor extended warranties! Hello rear TSB! Thanks again to James and made sure I wrote down TacomaWorld and TRICOMA were how I found out about the shop.

    Need to get the clip up. Sounds awesome though. Low end throaty sound and not overly loud. Cruising is slightly louder than the TRD Cat Back can that was on there. Idling sounds good but does no justice, under load is nice as hell. 87 for the new can and 82 for the install

    I didn't have the means to be able to install my 5100s yesterday and needed my truck operational again by the end of the day. Called James up around 2pm and explained my situation, to which he replied no problem. Towed my truck over and had it back at 630pm. 5100s were dialed in nice and tight, and alignment is true. Awesome service from the truck shop yet again and great prices. Highly recommended for vehicle maintance or any other issue. It's where I'll continue to go :thumbsup:

    I have always had great experiences with James. I love my UCAs and had them greased up again just to make sure. Also getting my sliders finally installed in a few weeks. I can't wait. He has done my suspension and I highly recommend him to anyone in the SD area. He will work on all Toyotas, Lexus and Scion.

    Look out for a Truck Shop Mod day/BBQ/Babes meet in the next few months....
