Adding Cruise Control

Has anyone added Cruise to a non SR5, non TRD 2011 2.7 man trans. I dont think mine comes with the wiring in the colum and not sure how to tell. Dont want to buy the stem and install parts and find out theirs no wiring in the colum or to and from the ECM to control it. I have a base model truck reg cab bench seat which I hate and no power options. I bought this to truck to last as long as I do so I ordered it stripped down as far as I could get it. The less there is the less there is to break.

im not sure if its the same for a 2011, but for my 2005 all of the wires and necessary plugs were there, they were just taped off.

I got this cruise control for my 2008 SR5 reg cab for like $150. If you are worried about the toyota one not working on a non SR5 this one just clips into the plastic on the steering wheel. I'm perfectly happy with it.

I got my stem at a junk yard for $10. They are all the same cars and trucks are alike in your year model. So one for a Camry will fit.

Ok I got the cruise control switch and the new jumper wire for my 2008 base model. But after plugging everything in, nothing. Is there a part that goes from the ecu to the steering wheel that i need?

Dealership, my local one says cant be done the toyota parts wont work on my truck. Second here is the part #s from Rostra for the 2011 taco 250-1836 and if you have a clutch 250-4206 and bout $170.00 bucks. I ordered mine from Brandon Dist. @ 877-402-3944 great people. Rostra says no problem. Will update again after the install. And yes this is the delership I bought the truck from, what the heck ?

update after install

Well dont try to deal with the stealership. I tried not to say that but what else can I think. The Rostra kit worked great even if your truck is not prewired and my truck was not. I had four wires to run from the drivers side to the passenger side and used a coat hanger to pull them across from one side to the other. I also had to install the clutch switch. Yep it was a pita. My biggest trouble was no room to rotate the clutch switch to screw it inplace of the stop bolt on the clutch pedal. The wires were made onto it and no room for them to rotate to screw it in. How they stayed on there I have no idea. I pulled on them for 10 min to turn the switch about 12 rounds or so. All I can say is its made tough and thank you Rostra for making a great system. Im no professional mechanic and it took me about four hours and two sore knees to get her done but Im cruzing now with a push of a button. I have one issue maybe someone can answer. When I push the brake pedal the cruise drops out and will not resume the cruise light starts blinking and I have to turn it off then back on to reset it. ? Not sure if thats the correct way it is supposed to work but I can deal with that. I think my corolla with resume after pushing the brake pedal. If I had to guess I would say this is the factory cruise toyota installs on our trucks. Looks indentical to my corolla.
