    I'm leaning toward getting the aero 2525xl muffer. It seems everyone who has this muffler like it. Just want more info from anyone who has this, like what all I should get. I'm thinking all I need is the muffler and just have a shop put it on. Any advice would help thanks

    Yup. That's it. Picked mine up on Ebay for like 100 bucks shipped. Love it. Not too loud thanks to the built in resonator. Deep. No rasp. No drone in the cab.

    Had Midas cut out the old and weld in the new.

    Just installed one in my new '14 tacoma and I'm glad I went with the AT instead of wicked flow. You can barely hear it when cruising but it screams when you mash the pedal! Be prepared to waste gas after getting it installed...if you know what I mean! I actually ran out of fireworks when new years came around so I started up my truck and revved the crap out of it...i was under the influence of course and thought it was a great idea....my friends agreed lol.

    No I didnt. I pm'd you back btw.

    But. Another local member here has it and they are similar. Hard to compare then as mine is still new. Once it breaks in a bit more I can report back. They are different tho. Try some sound clips on youtube. Might give you an idea.

    :thumbsup: no problem. You'll like it

    I put the aero 2525 on my 2010 sport about a month ago. I personally love the sound. Its loud enough and has a good tone, but not as raspy as a flowmaster. definetly worth the money plus its polished and looks good.

    Just ordered it. How much should I pay to have it installed I'm thinking no more than $100.
