ME TOO

I have the same truck (different exterior color).
if you find one it should be plug and play. temp probe and all wiring should all be there.

Make me an $$ offer, I know these are in demand. I may be able to repair it as well before I ship.

FYI, you won't find a stock tan temp/comp console as they only came in the TRD packages and tan wasn't an interior color option on those. If you find a tan one, it's been modified (like I have done).

I just did it this last weekend, and haven't taken any pics, so I hadn't posted anything,,, to avoid the "pics or it didn't happen" posts

But what I did was; I found (was offered) a grey temp/comp console for a reasonable price, I took the grey console and removed the temp/comp unit/plastic surround (more on this below), and placed it into the tan console.

The temp/comp unit's plastic surround is attached to the console using melted plastic tabs and rings. You need to heat those spots and manipulate the plastic so that you can remove the unit from the new console, remove the garage door bin from the old console (heat and plastic again), then place the unit into the old console. Then reheat and bend the plastic tabs and rings back down.

I found a "reasonable" color matched can of Fusion paint at Wally world. It's just a bit lighter, but close enough for me. If you want a total match on the entire console, I think you'll need to paint the entire console, or find some way to get a can of the tan interior's color matched paint.

I removed the unit from the console (remove the unit from the plastic with 3 screws), masked off the unit's plastic surround from the console and painted it. NOTE, much easier to remove the unit/surround from the new console, remove the unit from the plastic surround, paint the plastic surround, THEN put the plastic surround/unit into the old console. I got in a hurry to see it working and didn't want to have to trip over to Wally world for a can of paint first.

Also, for heat, I'd read that using a soldering iron works and was going to use that, but got too lazy to untangle the extension cord, and decided to use a propane torch... It did work, but was like using a 20 lb sledge hammer to pound a nail. I would recommend a soldering iron with a spade-like tip on it.

so i just talked to the Earnheart Toyota in mesa az, and the parts supervisor said that they are the same part, just with different part numbers for when they started soldering the board differently. so if anyone is interested pm me and we can work something out. I have re-soldered both the 510 resisters and the three 720 resisters on this one for good measure and all works great!

let me correct my self. i did some more looking into this and other people are correct, the displays are different starting 2009... they changed from a 5 wire to a 6 wire. the temp sensor is wired into the A.C. unit for some reason and then sent to the overhead.... sorry for the mix up.
