muffler noisy when revs over 2000rpm on 2001 Tacoma with trd tailpiece

Hi Folks.
The muffler on my 2001 Toyota Tacoma is very noisy when climbing a steep hill or overtaking on flat road. Usually past 2000 rpm. It has a 6inch wide TRD tailpiece at the end.
What could be the problem>?HOw should I solve it?

you don't mention...

...the mileage or type of use...both important factors. mufflers may be treated (aluminized) or even made of stainless (not on your toyota)....but the guts are subjected to a really nasty environment and even the best ones fail eventually. try whacking it with a rubber hammer and see if you can hear stuff inside of it...if you do, you need one. either that or put up with the noise til the shell is rusts thru. a GOOD quality muffler will be worth the extra bucks versus a bargain brand one.

Is this a new noise, did it start after you replaced the factory exhaust with the TRD.

A little more info would help
