Help with dash kit

I did a search on which brand is better and found out Metra is better built than Scosche. Now my question is which model to buy? Iím going with a double din stereo (Pioneer AVH-X2500BT) and is going in my 05 tacoma if that helps. Also, I notice some dash kits includes the wire harness, do I really need that if Iím planning on running new (thicker) wires from hu to amp and then all new speaker wires?Thanks for your help in advance

I found that both kits were kind of cheap feeling, but considering the price and how seldom I would ever remove the stereo, they both do a fine job. I ended up using the metra kit.

I did not get the wiring kit since I only used the power, memory, and ground lines from the existing wires (I too ran all new wires - see my link below).

Thank you. Yes, I like where you put your bass knob, I think I'll be doing that same mod.
