Found Stock ipod Adapter!!

After trying to research different ways to hook up an ipod to my stock single disc in dash player, I found a really good module. The module is made by a company called USA-Spec. It plugs into your CD changer slot in the back of the headunit and operates your ipod like it would a CD changer. Install was really easy. There is no splicing, cutting or damage at all to you truck. The Module also has a rca Aux input for whatever else you want to plug into it. I got the unit for $140 and picked it up in the Los Angeles area. If anyone is interested in the module let me know.

I've got one too and totally love it. I routed it through my center console and have it coming up through between the box in the middle. It was super easy to do (about 30 minutes to install) and it sounds great.

I just installed one of these adapters in my Taco...and one in my Scion.
http://www.usaspec.com/ipod_product_sheets/pa15-toy.pdf


For 159.99 I got the adapter shipped to my door from Crutchfield with their "Master Sheets" The mastersheet shows how to remove the dash work and the radio (I didn't know how to do it yet...so it was worth it for me)

Took me about 5 mins to open the dash-5 mins to find a place to put the adapter box and like 5-10 mins to route the wires and plug it into the back of the radio. 5 more minutes to put the dash back together.

It is about as 'Plug and Play' as you can get. A pigtail into the radio plugs into the changer plug (and has a second pigtail for an external changer if you want). That mates with the main plug to the converter box. That box allows RCA inputs and the iPod cable.

Uber-easy...and totally worth it if you don't want to spend the coin on an aftermarket head unit.

Look at an Alpine 9884. It includes the ipod cable and more power than stock unit. Great head unit for buillding a nice system.

I usually steer clear of crutchfield because of their high price but they have them for $149 right now. The unit has an HPF also if you plan to expand the system.
