    picked up my trd exhaust today and didn't realize there is a kit with a new gasket and bolts that i didn't get. My truck only has 700 mi on it ,can i re use the original gasket and bolts? Will it be hard getting those bolts off with my truck being so new?:confused: thanks

    I would say you could try to get away with the bolts but would recommend a new gasket. The gasket with 700mi has been seated between two pieces of metal. Now you are going to disturb it and try to reseal it. It may work for a bit but you may have a leak. Better off to do it once with the gasket.

    *When i installed mine, my truck had 160000kms so I put new bolts, springs and gasket.

    Do any of you guys know where to get the gasket or what part number it is? I recently installed a Flowmaster exhaust and I used the same washer.

    Any time you change any exhaust part you "should" use a new gasket. Some people WILL say they re-used the same gasket and were fine. Yes that is true. However if it leaks do you want have to fix it? Is it worth it the $15 new gasket costs?
