Does any of you stereo gurus know if there is an antenna adapter available for the factory 2011 + Tacoma JBL / Satellite Radio with 6 Disk changer to go to the standard sirius/XM/Terk style antenna?
I have one of these stereo units in my 08 and I found out the satellite tuner is built into the head unit, but I don't have, or know of a way to connect it to an aftermarket antenna. My Google attempts, have netted me zero so far.
Or, if I was to purchase the factory harness, I wonder if it can connect to an aftermarket antenna? My 08 doesn't have the factory antenna, and I really don't want to cut holes in the roof if at all possible to add the factory antenna. (plus I can get an aftermarket antenna for 20-50 bucks.)

UPDATE: I am getting real close to a solution. I found that the connector on the back of thr 2009 and newer Sat ready radios likely use the same connector as the 2007 and later Lexus. There is an adapter cable that goes from the factory "shark fin" Antenna to an aftermarket stereo for the lexus, Here:
But the issue is that this cable has the same type of connector (SMB) that is on an aftermarket Sirius/XM antennas. So I have been researching if there is a SMB to SMB "plug" barrel connector to connect the two - no luck yet. I am half tempted to buy this cable and buy the proper connector and just build it myself, but 60 bux is a bit of a lot to pay if it doesn't work.
I thought about just modifying the stereo to add a "Jam Nut" SMB plug on the radio itself, but that won't do anyone any good. My ambition is to try and get the proper parts and part #s so this can be plug and play.
I called TSS to see if they had the proper combination of cable adapters, but they didn't. I suggested that they consider having this combination made for future, gave them all the info, and they said they would look into it. In any case, they carry the same cable as well here:
Does anyone know the name or part # of the Lexus / Toyota proprietary square connector? Knowing the part # may help in future searches.

Update: another similar response I made to another thread, which is prtinent to this thread:
I am still looking into other possible options... I just wish I could get the Mfr and PN of the Toyota connector!! that would make things SOOO much easier..
(I wonder if I could cannibalize the square connector off a used Toyota Junkyard cable. hmm.)
