    I'm seriously looking at doing this and would like a little feedback on how you like or dislike this set-up. Truck is basically stock and will remain so for a bit. Thanks in advance for your input.

    Oh okay. I don't have a TRD exhaust. I have a Flowmaster 50 series dual cat-back exhaust system. But there are plenty of people with TRD exhausts on here that will give you some info.;)

    I don't have it either but everyone who does from what i've heard loves it. Not too loud but a nice throaty tone when you step on it.

    Though from a price standpoint, a lot of people think it's more worth your dollar to avoid the catback and just pick out a muffler you like and weld on an exhaust tip. You'll save hundreds $$$

    I have the TRD Catback.

    With 91/93 it is AWESOME. It makes no more noise than stock at idle. It sounds almost silent. It doesn't make much racket during normal driving either, but once you giver 'er some and get into the low 3000s or up on the tach...vrooom!


    With 87, my exhaust note is louder. I'm not sure why, but that is the case. The truck isn't as responsive though...the whole setup seems more refined with 93.

    Slightly off topic but I was underneath my truck unbolting the tube steps and I stopped to admire the factory exhaust system. I was quite impressed with the quality and the mandrel bends. I believe if I were to change anything it would be the monstrous muffler and leave the rest of the factory exhaust alone.

    Excellent input. I am now looking at doing just a Flowmaster 50 SUV muffler and tip. And it will save around $425. Thanks!

    I have the TRD catback, and the K&N CAI on my 07 4.0 litre. At first it's not that loud, but after a few thousand miles or so it sounds great, It has a very tuned sound at start up, normal when idelling and just right when ya give it the onion, not like a 16 yr. old who just cut off the muffler on an old tired v8. Performance wise... it could be a bit better on the take off but once you hit the 2500 to 3000 rpm range hold on!! thorley long tube headers will help in every department, thats next...

    I have a TRD cat back... been on it since the day I bought it. Nice throaty low end sound, no drone and sounds great at WOT and when I have a nice load on it (4000 lbs. boat).... I love the sound of this big ass V-6 working hard.
