    Need ideas for exhausts. I have been debating between a borla, and the TRD exhaust. I've heard great reviews on both and listened to both as well. Anyone that have either or have any suggestions??

    I have the TRD duals. Sounds great! Even better with a S/C!

    The nerds bars are "Magnum RT"s" I love them. They don't hang low like most and it's flushed with the truck

    I have the TRD dual exhaust and sounds great. I would have liked to have gone with BA muffler but shipping kills me being in Canada .

    Another vote for BAMufflers.

    Have the 7" and it is perfect IMO.

    Good looking truck btw.

    Is that a special bar for special people? Haha. Auto-correct kills me too sometimes.

    I have the TRD cat-back and love it. You can't go wrong with BAMuffler either. Keith really knows his stuff.

    I think the only two exhaust systems I would look at would be BAmuffler or the trd system. If I was just going to weld a muffler, I might look at spintech.

    I went with Mr. Carty's bamuffler dual exhaust cat back with the trd tailpipes. His exhaust system has 2 major advantages over the trd system. He uses an xpipe to minimize any low End tq loss and Helmholtz (I think I spelled that right) pipes to minimize or eliminate drone. I'm sure if you do some searching or call him, he will give you the details on that.

    Tried to keep the TRD theme going so the exhaust choice was a no brainier for me. No buyers remorse at all.

    I did go with the Spintechs. I have used them on many builds in the past and sound just like the old big block cars. they have a very low rumble at idle and sound like no other muffler at WFO..They are not quiet007.jpg 005.jpg

    I had the borla on my truck before the TRD and I prefer the TRD duals so much more. The sound is a lot crisper.
