Exhaust is such a subjective topic. I had the MBRP high clearance version on my old rig and it droned so badly on the highway that we let it go with the truck when we traded it in rather than swapping it over. For the new truck, I just did high clearance mods to the stock exhaust and the whole family is much happier. I prefer having more intake noise than exhaust noise on a V6 anyways, and that's exactly what I have now with the OEM muffler and an Airaid intake. It's quiet cruising and has just enough growl to not sound like you're driving a Camry until you get higher in the RPM range.

That being said, I think the best sounding and most balanced exhaust for these trucks is actually the TRD one, and it's the only TRD accessory I actually think is worth a shit. I wish I could buy just the muffler, but they only sell it as a complete system and I don't want to pay for the whole thing just to turn around and cut it up.

Just curious is that intake carb legal?

I have a Borla 40665 Muffler and I dumped the tip over the rear axle. It seems like this is pretty similar to the muffler on the TRD Exhaust. The sound is really mild driving around town, but when passing or grinding up a hill at about 2,800 RPM its definitely there. That being said it is much quiter than the MBRP systems I've heard.

Yea I’ve heard the same exact opinions on the borla as well but overall there both awesome exhaust for these trucks just depends if you want a more tame one or a more out of control exhaust lol

Driving a 4 banger Tacoma with a AFE MACH Force-Xp 2-1/2"-3" Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System, Its loud enough if you floor it past cars in a parking lot it sets off alarms. :)
Need a video!
