    I’ve been eyeballing and considering doing LT Headers and a full BAM exhaust. My truck is a lease and I have every intention to buy the truck but it does limit the mods I can do because of my “maintenance” plan. I get everything replaced/maintained no charge. Oil, tires, wipers, other fluids, brakes, battery, lights, state inspection, etc. (not quite your typical lease), As long as it’s a Toyota part, it’s covered.

    I want more performance though and LTs + exhaust might do that, but I cannot interfere with the techs ability to do their job. The LTs are a tight squeeze from the pictures I’ve seen so would they interfere with maintaining the vehicle under normal wear/tear items? How about working around drive shafts, front diff, alternator, etc?

    This might be something I hold off until I own the truck, but I want more power now! :D

    Ask the dealer what would be covered if you paid them to install the LTs and BAMuffler exhaust... I don't see where any of what you are planning would hinder maintenance or repair. Maybe install a TRD or RCI skid plate with the oil filter door, and make their job that much easier.
