Re: 2007 catalytic converter issues?

This issue is puzzling. Your cats should last longer than that. Are you in L.A. or Louisiana? There are no moving parts to wear out. I suspect there is another issue. Can you shoot a few pics of the cats? I need to see what color the metal cases are.

The internets seems to indicate that I can use aftermarket replacements available for around $300 each. Any problems with this? The aftermarket stuff looks like bolt on, but when i got under the FJ it looked to be all welded.

Any advice would be appreciated. TIA.

I like to build BAmufflers
