borla dual exhaust is by far the deepest sounding fj exhaust. it is very pricey ,but you cant beat the looks of dual exhaust

It seems like the best exhaust is just getting one custom fabricated by an exhaust specialist. I'd like to get one done that has a mandrel bend after the headers. I'm sure toyota did it for clearance purposes, but i hate seeing restrictive bends like that on my exhaust.

IMO, the TRD is one of the best. The tone is just a little bit louder but not annoying. At cruising speed it sounds the same, but when on the throttle it sounds deeper. Its all stainless as well so no worries about rusting.

Also IMO, a dual exhaust, like the above, is just twice the exhaust you have to be careful not to crush. If you wheel that is. I would never run dual exhaust on a 4x4 unless they were true duals all the way and tucked up out of the way to not get crushed.

it does sound really good, does the sound differ if you just put the muffler on not the whole cat back system?

Borla XR-1 muffler... had to cut the oem muffler and re-place with XR-1... that's it..

having TRD intake and snorkel helps too...
$150-$175 for the muffler shipped ...

AFE has a pretty good tone to it. I can definitely hear it inside while on the highway. I can definitely hear it coming down the street when my wife drives it, too.

I am running the flowmaster super44 off road series, and I love the sound it gets. Also K&N 63 series intake, Jba headers and the 2nd gen Doug Thorley y-pipe. Gets complimented all the time..rumbles without being obnoxious. It may not be stainless and pretty, but it sounds great!

I really like the sound my my stock '11 exhaust, deep and mellow. But I've heard another very nice tone from an FJ with a replacement Flowmaster muffler.
