Hey Everyone,

Today i just finished installing the TRD cat back exhaust system on my 06! Installation was very easy and performed right in my driveway. I was on the fence as to what kind of exhaust system i should get. I have read a lot about exhaust on this website trying to determin what i should do. The threads have been very informative. I've read how people loss low end and HP with some custom set ups. I do alot of highway driving and i did not want that annoying cab drone, not to mention i did not want to lose HP and TQ. The TRD system seemed to be the wise choice over a custom set up. Honestly i would not have gotten the TRD system if it was not for my friend who works at a dealership at the parts dept. I got a great deal! It looks nice and i am looking forward to driving it. I havent even been out for a cruise yet! I was a bit surprised when i started it up, i thought it would have been a bit louder. It has a mild tone. Also check out the Truxedo Lo Profile cover i put on about 8 months ago. i finally updated my picture gallery so please check that out! i cannot figure out how to resize my pictures to put into this thread. Click the camera icon next to my name. Thanks for checkin out my truck!

Thanks man. I just got back from ridding around town and i must say that i am more than pleased with this exhaust. I probably put about 25 miles on it today and i like the way it sounds. Its not very loud but it has a nice rumble when your accelerating. when your cruising you can hardly hear it but give it a little gas and it reminds you its there. what i like most about it is that its not abnoixious. i went to dunkin donuts and hung outside drinking an ice coffee and one after another a ford, chevy or dodge would go by making me grimace with loud exhaust. the TRD set up sounds like a well tuned sports car. I cant say that i noticed any increase in power or decrease in low end. All i can say is that i didnt lose any. It could also be to early to tell, give the computer a chance to accomidate the change. Anyways thanks for the compliment! let me know if you have any questions.

The bed cover rolls up. Whats nice is that if you lock your tailgate no one can get in unless they cut it with a knife. Its pretty secure the only way to roll it up is by opening the tailgate first and releasing the lever. I love this cover. it has one of the lowest profiles out there for a roll up. very easy and can roll up on one side without the center collapsing. there is a picture in my gallery where you can see it rolled up.
