    I'm gonna go w/ a TRD cat back on my '07 Sport Access Cab. I decided to stick w/ the Toyota parts, go all stainless, and gain a little growl. I like that people say at idle, and cruising it is barely louder than stock, and when you get on it, that you will know it's there. However:

    I went to the stealership, and they said they would "hook me up" and give me the exhaust for $440. Doesn't sound like a great deal to me. Also, they said that it would take 2 HOURS to install??? No way, I've heard it's all bolt on, direct replacement and takes less than a half hour. For you guys that have it, how do u like it, and how long did it take to install?? Thanks

    Yeah...CAT backs aren't cheap....IDK about that price in specfic...but I've never really seen them be a great deal.

    You are doing the "all toyota parts" thing...but you could have a shop put a muffler in there for way less than a Cat back....

    +1 on doing it yourself....Don't need a shop for something like that.

    I like the all stainless, don't feel like dealing w/ rust after a while or replacing stock piping. Don't mind payin $400 now instead of replacing the muffler/stock pipes later.

    I bought from here, no issues and it was the cheapest I could find.

    Installation is a breeze, just take your time. Have someone there to help
    and lower the spare tire prior to anything. Took about a half hour to an
    hour, I installed it by myself. :D

    I like the sound, you pegged it in your earlier post, nothing too loud, till you
    get on it. Completes the truck if you ask me.

    Good luck!

    I have one...got it cheep...I wouldn't do it again. It's not mandrel bent, so the pipe diameter gets smaller just after the muffler at the first bend. Kind of shabby for Toyota I think, when there is better out there. Just my $.02
