    I bought my first Toyota on 2012, it was a 99 Tacoma that had been in my family since 01 (RIP Pearl). Then I replaced it with an 03 Tacoma. Both were TRD OR prerunners so when I decided I wanted a Tundra, I knew I needed a 4x4.

    This is my 06 Super White AC Tundra Limited v8 4wd the day I brought her home. Her name is Penelope.

    I'm really new lol I been here like a month already.
    What part of Houston? I'm from Alvin (Southside).

    There's a big Texas Toyota Collation beach meet at Bolivar on Saturday October 20th that a bunch of Houston TW members are attending. I'll be there too. Here's a link for more details.

    Nice looking truck! If I were to change one thing about my truck it would be that I wish it were white.

    When you put your Flowmaster in, did the offset in/center out or offset in/offset out fit better?

    I'm not a fan of white, I like blue the best. But it beats the ugly silver of my last Taco.

    I'm not sure what you mean on the exhaust. I got the for free from a local TW member it was used for like 1k miles before he replaced it with a magnaflow. I had a shop cut out the stock muffler and resonator and weld in the muffler and about 2 foot of pipe. I may chop off the tail pipe at the axle turn down but o haven't decided. It sounds so good as is.

    I'm referring to the orientation of the inlet and outlet on the muffler; this is offset in/center out (or vice versa):

    And offset in/offset out:
