Your truck is looking awesome. Bit of a hijack - Where did you get the exhaust done? What should someone looking to get an exhaust done on a FJ-40 budget?

Thanks guys. Gotta put that Grant in, too, to resolve the little clearance problem I have.

Talk to Scott for your exhaust:

A A Performance Muffler & Brks
3898 S Broadway
Englewood, CO 80113
Phone: (303) 806-8634

It cost me $250 for everything past the header.
