The story started last weekend when I backed down an incline on the pre-run for the Northeast Lobster run. After failing to make it up AND over the incline several times before winching out , with the aid of Zazou as my anchor, I mangled my OEM exhaust to the point where it was driveable but sounded like Chevy Chevette with no exhaust. It was severly kinked at the bend going up and over the axle and I believe I ran it over as well. I posted on the forums that I needed an OEM replacement tailpipe literally within an hour of posting Tai Mai Shu(Tuan) came through. No charge. But it gets better. I called Tuan Wednesday night and he just happened to be heading up to Boston from NJ. He re-routed his trip so that he could meet me at our local mall here at home. It's people like this that I have met through the forum that make this an indespensable place to come to. I have met quite a few people from the forum and have not been dissappointed by one of them. As a matter of fact we have forged some very good relationships with a few members. So a HUGE Thank You to Tai Mai Shu who came through and went above and beyond in a pinch. :clap::cheers::bigthumb:

Just so Taun knows, I installed the replacement tailpipe yesterday. What a pain in the ash getting the OEM flange bolts out. Regardless it's in place and my rig sounds healthy again. I will be at the CMCC at Rausch Creek in Pennsylvania on Thursday night, wheelin' Friday with my two kids and a whole heap of Toyotas! This was part of the reason for panic. I didn't want to put a $400 exhaust on and have the same thing happen again. Thanks again Tuan!:cheers:
