4th Gen Cat Back Exhaust Replacement Recommendations

well, my pipe just broke after the muffler. think i will need a full cat back replacement (two pipes: muffler and resonator). prefer to stick to OE (have a WTB/FREE ad running), but those two sections from Toyota will run $600! I don't like cheap "aluminized" Walker junk that rusts out one day after the warranty.
Recommendations?

I got a Gibson sainless on sale for like 375 for the sole purpose of avoiding rust.

My buddy found an OEM style stainless on Amazon for pretty cheap.

So there are options.

I was sold on Remark Bold Performance. Not a lot of people have it but the quality is outstanding.

I've been pretty pleased with my Magnaflow cat back.

If I were to do it over again, I would have gone straight to a 1/4 Wave Resonator to kill the drone at 1800-2100 RPM, but otherwise no complaints.

Best-looking side exit exhaust available as well, IMO.

Gibson side exit tips look goofy as hell.

So back in 2014 I put a borla TRD exhaust on my kids 99 4runner. Worst waste of money I had Spent on the truck. It had a drone at 45 & 65 mph that would scramble your brains. After some searching, I found a member who fixed it by installing a tundra resonator after the muffler. And thats what i had to do to mine. There is no substitute for a nice quiet ride. I just wish there was an option for a stainless setup designed for quiet running.

isn't the original a stainless set-up, and quiet? went to my local independent exhaust repair shop. they think they can cut and weld a flange/pipe piece for $80. they said it should last a year or so. might buy me time to locate a nice 4th gen. OE take off that someone has hanging from their rafter.

How would you rate the around town and highway cruise noise level on Remark? Does it drone?

deeper research into my repair history indicates that i replaced the muffler and resonator pipes in February 2018 at 195k. so got 25k out of them. not good. they must have been the dreaded walker aluminized pipes. i think i will still sink the $80 into a patch, and cross my fingers i can find a nice take-off.

I donít hear it over my MTs unless Iím 50% throttle or higher. No drone. Iím running stock headers, stock y and the Remark catback. My DT long tubes will be here this week so that might change.

I got a gibson catback exhaust back in September, stainless steal straight exit. Sounds great, nice growl at low RPM and open up at high RPM.

I've heard mostly yes but few people have validated it. What year/motor are you running?
