system build in my '11. Worth the wait.

My friend did the install, took just over a week, but was well worth it. Had a bunch of leds installed in the footwells, under the seats and under each of the doors. Will post pics later.
System sounds great.
Alpine INA-W910 head unit
Massive NX5 Amp
Custom sub enclosure with Image Dynamics 8" sub (does not sound like an 8)
Rainbow speakers all the way around, separates up front, coax in rear.
Hushmat in front doors
Dowontec alarm system with smartkey and pushbutton start.
Big smiles from me.

Looks awesome! I know you will enjoy it!
I am amazed on the "push button start", didn't know there was an aftermarket. Can you provide info and some feedback on whats involved in the installation?

Thanks!!!

Thanks for all the great comments. Super happy with the way the system sounds. The imaging is perfect, the sub isnt overpowering.
Hope I can answer all the questions here.
The sub box was custom made. With so many Tacomas here on the island, my friend built a jig so he can make the boxes when he gets a customer with a Tacoma. I dont think he had to cut any plastic to fit the box in that space, if so it was very minimal.
The pushbutton start (its so sweet) is part of the entire alarm system. The alarm has a small transmitter that you carry so the truck senses when you are close so it will lock or unlock automatically. It also has remote start as well as a key pad on the window in case you lose the transmitter or lock yourself out of the truck. The transmitter also has remote start. The alarm is made by Dowontec, called the Alibaba model ALI-ST800.
I think the install for the pushbutton start wasnt too difficult, but all of the other wiring, sensors, keypad and antenna did take some time.
Took him 8 nights to do the entire install. Deck, speakers, alarm and led lights.
As for prices, sorry but I got the friend price hook up. The stuff is not cheap though. I think the alarm is the best thing out there right now. Im sure there are not too many Tacomas with pushbutton start. Maybe the 2014 model year.

here you go. Place Luxart LED modules under each seat as well as one under the dash on the driver and passenger side to illuminate the footwells.
Also put led strips under each door to illuminate the ground when doors are opened.

I love the light strips under the door for when it's open. Very nice.

Nice stereo install. L.E.D.'s is kind of ghetto, but if you like it.

Love the sub box. The DVD player and LEDs aren't my style but as long as you like it, man.

thanks for all the comments. As for being ghetto, most luxury cars have lighing under the doors and in the footwells for convenience and safety when stepping out of a car in a dark area. Works great, but if you think its ghetto, thats fine. God Bless America we can do whatever we want to our cars.

How's the push start work on the sterring wheel lock? I had a push start on my 2010 toyota highlander limited and the way it work is, once you push the start button with out pressing the brake it will unlock the sterring wheel/ACC on, I can hear something on the sterring column that sound like a solenoid unlocking the sterring wheel. When the brake was press and hit the start button it will start the engine. While the engine is running and push start button, the engine will shut down, sterring wheel will be lock. Is that the same way like my highlander?

BTW, I might getting one if its the same way like my highlander.

Found the installation manual for the push start. I read something about what need to be done on the key that don't impress me, its a nice system. I still might get it, I've been looking for something like this since I got my highlander. Thank you for the idea. http://www.auto-innovatio.com/magent...on-manual.html
