Upgrade radio but keep all factory options

I will be getting a new Tacoma very soon either a 2011 or 2012 and I would like to upgrade the radio but keep all the factory options that come with it but also have Sirius radio and an iPod connection. What would you guys suggest?

Also is there away to get the factory backup camera to show up on a double din after market stereo?

Thanks

What radio will the truck you want have? JBL? Non JBL?

Yes there is a way with splicing wires and such.

Why wouldn't you save the money on the JBL system and apply it to a complete aftermarket setup?

Some radios have a harness for the wheel controls.

You would lose factory Bluetooth. The AUX input would need some work to get it going. Skip the JBL if you are going aftermarket. I have it and it sounds great but it makes upgrading a pain.

A special interface module is needed for the factory amp to work and if you want to bypass the amp you have to run all new wiring.

I just bought a 2012 SR5 double cab with the stock radio. They're going to deliver it to my house in the next few days; I can't figure out on the internet if bluetooth is going to come standard or not. It does have a USB port next to the aux input. Anyone else know?

The Alpine I put in was CDE 123 with the KCE 25OBT Blue tooth I had all the controls hocked up to the steering wheel and it has an I pod adapter which i love as i keep it behind the glove box out of the way. Also it has a lot of extra. The Radio that came with the truck realy sucked, Oh, I also put an amp and new speakers that match the radio. The Bluetooth is the biggest plus. The only thing that I had a problem with was the back light was way too bright and the dimmer didn' t bring it down much, so I open the back an installed a small pice of red stage lighting film which cut down the light so I could drive better at night, other then that It's a great unit and I added more space in the dash with this up grade. I'll try to get a picture
