I'm pretty sure the entune unit is wired up differently probably with a jbl system
This is what I was wondering. It would be nice to hook up the Entune hu to a pre-'12 JBL equipped Tacoma.

in my opinion...it wont be worth installing an entune headunit in a pre-12 tacoma...u can easily find an aftermarket headunit with tons more features on it

There is no question this is the case but I have always leaned towards keeping things as OEM as possible.

I totally agree with you man, I'm the same way lol...just some things are a little too much $$$ to keep them/make them as close to stop

slightly off topic but do you guys now if you can plug and play swap JBL speakers in for Base speakers and tweeters? Or do they have different wiring plugs?

I dislike that the right (scroll) knob now changes the song that your cd/mp3 is playing to the next one if you accidentally bump into it

EDIT: also the a/c control panel sits out from the top slanted...its not flush...
ill probably make this radio blue and white once i see whats in there
Would it be possible to modify the mounts so the radio sits further back into the dash with less gap?

Do you think the Under surround, that holds the AUX and A-Trac and all that swap? I don't know if you got a chance to look at that, just wondering since I have to take mine apart anyway

so can you swap the a/c vents and make the 2011 unit fit into a 2012?
I am looking at the rosen unit as a swap for my 2012 unit

thoughts?

From what I've seen, the radio plugs haven't changed on the normal radio idk about the JBL ones

But the a/c vents have 2 plugs and the 2nd plug that plugs into the right side of the panel that activates the a/c and recirculation is a different plug
