No cutting required. I only loosened the 3 clamps bolts to the widest. This allowed me to push in the chrome tip slightly to the orig bent tail pipe. After aligning it, tightened up the 3 bolts to the position on the picture. It was easy. (y)

Toyota OEM Factory Stainless Exhaust Tip P/N PT18A-48090 on eBay

I found this one which is exact but longer than the OEM on Amazon. DC Sports EX-1013 Muffler Tip at half the price.

I ordered the chrome tip and delivered in 4 days. It was so easy to install.
This looks great! Are there any options for a black tip? Looks like DC Sports makes the EX-1012B, but the specs are listed as "Fits 1.5” to 2” diameter piping." What diameter is the stock piping on the 2019 SE?

I found a black version of the OP's chrome tip (EX-1013B), but I have not yet ordered it. Toyota makes an OEM black chrome tip for Tacomas and 4Runners, but does anyone know what diameter those tips are? The parts websites only say which vehicle is compatible and they don't list the actual measurements.

Update...... I installed the DC EX-1013 on my 2019 LE Plus. It looks great, but I have an OEM hitch and it rattles against the hitch. I have tried to reposition it farther out, farther in, and with no success, it still rattles. I think I just may have to do without it until I come up with a better solution.

Here's my update. After conducting more research, I found that DC Sports doesn't see to make a black version of the same tip that the OP submitted above (EX-1013). I did, however, find a couple of other tips, but only one was the right fit. Anyone who may want a black tip should look at the DC Sports EX-1010B, which is the same as the OP's tip, but in black.

A word of warning, which may not be an issue to some: the tip looks like it's black chrome in the online pictures but it is indeed a black, "bumpy" finish. It suits the bumper and wheels on my 2019 SE just fine, so I'm happy to have found it.

I ended up only using the top two bolts with the washers removed, since upon installation I discovered that my tailpipe opening curves downward and inwards slightly towards the center of the vehicle. The tip is installed snugly with no give, and it follows the general downward slope of the end of the pipe. The final result looks nice, in my opinion, and completes the black highlight look on the SE trim (without having to pay the Toyota tax for an OEM tip).
