Yea, it sounds good but when paying $900+ for an exhaust, I wish the tail pipe part of the exhaust didn't get as much surface rust/nasty looking. Look at any truck that has the TRD exhaust on it with really any amount miles on it and you'll see that the parts of the pipes you can see from the back look all nasty and corroded looking. The muffler part of the exhaust still looks nice, but after I drove through rain the first time with my TRD exhaust, the tail pipe section already started to get light surface rust/corrosion/nasty looking. Not exactly sure what it is, but the pipes look all nasty. My factory exhaust pipe looked 100x better after 5k miles than the TRD did with 300 miles. It only has gotten worse, but now at least it's uniformly nasty. There for a while it was all splotchy looking. But yea, take a look at all the vehicles with the TRD exhaust...even the TRD Pros...the tail pipes from where the chrome tips are welded to up over the axle are nasty corroded looking. Not sure why they make it like that. I saw a 2010-13 the other day with it and his pipes were significantly worse than mine, so that leads me to believe it just slowly gets nastier and nastier looking.
I always knew the TRD tailpipes surface rusted/corroded and the factory one didn't nearly as bad, but now that I have the exhaust I pay attention to everyone I see and if anything, mine looks better than most and I think mine is disgusting looking between the flanges where the tailpipes bolt to the mufflers to the weld for the tips. The tips look great still.
Oh well, sounds great after 1000-2000 miles when the helicopter sound goes away.
