    So I have/had a stock 2008 DC Grade I bought new in 2008. I love this truck.

    But! It has come time to give it an up-do, a refresh, a make over. So I sent this dude Keith a note on his website, you may have heard of him around here? I said I am interested in scaring the cats, the dogs and the damn squirls getting into my trash can. I am interested in letting my neighbors know when I am around. And sending the message to the dog walkers that they had better get off my lawn. Email sent.

    It couldn't have been more than an hour and I get a call from Cali. Wait a minute, is this a scam? A set up? A snake oil salesman? Nope. This Keith guy had the balls to call me back.

    So, today I latched up my exhaust and pissed myself. Fantastic. Purrrrfection! DD's are the undisputed BA's.

    Just stop, seriously, just stop losing sleep over decisions to get the DD's, they're like a mammoth growling from my driveway - dreamy.

    One thing to note - other brands, ehmmm, other brands... you will never see any of their owners, senior leaders, representatives in these forums offering knowledge and experience openly. Haven't seen one respond yet and their generic website responses are not shy of arrogance and why shouldn't they be? They have been doing it for years - they have it mastered right? So why ask, march right down to your local Midas and get you some... no need to question. Pfft...

    Hands down 5Star resort stuff, this dude Keith, and his secret wizardry with exhausts is undeniable.

    Rumble on Tundra owners.

    So when I bought my truck, I optioned for the TRD Pro dual exhaust from day 1. I loved it. As I drove more, I noticed the helicopter come and go a little, but it was the low end torque that was lagging. The exhaust really powered up after 3500rpm but under that, not impressed. The sound was good, but performance was meh.
    So then this dude Keith, for the first time, decided to discount his "TRD replacement system" (Replaces the dual mufflers with new duals and x-pipe, while utilizing the TRD tailpipes) in a rather large group buy. I was hesitant, until speaking with Keith on the phone. His promise was: no helicopter due to the x-pipe, no drone with pre-installed resonators, and gains in low end torque. I said "holy shit!!!" How can one dude outperform the mighty TRD? Well I ordered it up based on the promise and the reputation. Installed it and it is exactly as promised.... F'n BADASS!
    Just thought I'd share my experience with both the TRD and DD, you could say I have a DD/TRD!
    DD is just the what the Tundra doctor ordered... Taking BA to another level! Lol

    12” BAM, you won’t even want to put the resi on. Made in USA, life time warranty and a stand up business owner in Keith is what made me decide.

    Maybe I missed all the reports of Droanmasters, Magnadroan, Corsa, Banks or Borla, offering ANY assistance after the sale, much less a lifetime sound warranty that will only cost shipping. I haven't missed their willingness to build a custom made exhaust for each truck according to the customer's needs either....it ain't there.

    Installed my resonator on my 10in system today, going on a 4.5 hour road trip next Wednesday and didn’t want to go nuts over the drone.

    It’s there, but it’s not smothering your kids, conversations or music. When I really want to notice it, I roll down the windows haha
