It says "Easy single bolt installation, no drilling, cutting or welding required" but it doesn't look it fits OVER the stock exhaust.

I thought the same thing, this will never fit over the exhaust. It fits very nicely but you might need to nudge it on with the palm of your hand or a rubber mallet. push it on clear up the the bend on the pipe with the bolt at the top and tighten it up. This is a very well made tip and really looks nice. I have had several comments on it. I also put on the Billet Aluminum door sill protectors (available from Toyota). They look pretty trick.

No rattle, it is a perfect fit. It is a very heavy item for it's size and very well made. I thought it would just be a piece of tin when I ordered it but that is not the case at all.

1. Remove tip from packaging.
2. Place on the ground behind rear tire of FJ.
3. Back up until you hear satisfying crunch.
4. Pull FJ forward into original position.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 several times.
6. Throw tip in trash.
7. Order cat-back exhaust.

I actually have one of these for sale. It was only on for about 3 weeks before I redid my entire exhaust. It looked really nice, no rattle and was an easy install.

PM me if your interested in it. I'll let it go for $35 plus actual shipping cost.

Or...

1. Install tip
2. Go off-road
3. Climb any slight incline
4. Listen for tip to drag, snag and be destroyed
5. Remember that the FJ is a 4x4 and not a muscle car
6. Order AllPro's High-Clearance tailpipe - out of sight.. out of harm's way

No (significant) disrespect here... just kidding around. ;)

There's a doc somewhere for that. It's a well built part, don't be distracted by the naysayers, and it looks better than the stock "pipe". Ron

I would have a shop weld it on for a clean install, they would charge about $20...

but, adding a bigger bulky tip will only be in the way on the trail and get crushed...
