TACOTUNES Review

My Order;
10" Behind the seat subwoofer box
Amp Board
Dash Kit w/stearing wheel control unit and wiring harness
Front and Rear speaker mounts w/tweater mounts
Total Cost $535

My initial Order took almost 3 weeks to recieve, however they offered to refund my shipping as compensation which was a nice gesture. They also shipped my stuff to an alternate address so I could finish my project because I had left on vacation. Over all their communications was fast and responsive, I even received several texts to straighten things out.

I ordered 10" box, Amp board, wiring harness, Dash Kit, Front and Rear speaker mounts for my 2011 Tacoma double cab....
The amp board dosn't fit unless you cut slots out in the plastic, remove the plastic or cut a curve out of the bottom corner of the board and 1" off the side. The speaker box dosn't fit unless you removing the entire plastic panel behind the seat they recommended I cut the shape of the box out of the plastic and then push the box in...However even after removing all the behind the seat plastic the subwoofer sits too low in the box and rubs on the back seat restrict the vibration of the speaker and making it sound distorted, still dont know how I'm going to fix that. The speaker mounts were made of high quality plastic however the mounting holes weren't alligned right, I had to drill new holes. The included mounting hardware didn't match my doors and i ended up purchasing better screws at Lowes hardware... When I tried to install the tweaters the plastic was too thick and caused my tweaters to push my grills ot of my doors so I ended up shaving them down to fit.

All and all about the only thing I liked about anything manufactured by Tacotunes were the rhino lining protective coating sprayed onto the wood, it adds a nice look and a rugged feel.

The double din Dash kit by Metra was good, however I think the Slchotch mounting kit is a little higher quality, I also purchased a stearing wheel adapter from Taco tunes and was sad to see their were no instructions included on how to install and utilize it with my Kenwood head unit, I ended up going online to figure it out

I actually received a phone call from Tacotunes trying to help me figure things out on my tacoma but their recomendations to remove my rear plastic panels in order to make things fit defeats my desire to retain a factory look to my tacoma. Through out the whole process I had great communications with Tacotunes personel and decent customer service. However All and All I couldn't honestly recomend this company to anyone looking to upgrade their sounds system in the tacoma, if they made a few modifications to their manufacturing and did a little research into how their products fit into their target Market they might have a great product.
Ill add pictures later

I ordered on a Sunday and I still haven’t got a confirmation from them stating my order was even placed and its Thursday. I tried calling but their phone has a busy tone every time. I might be freaking out too cause I have read only good reviews. I did get a confirmation through my PayPal stating my payment was sent and received and that electronic shipping has been received but still no confirmation from TacoTunes. I really was hoping to get the products before the weekend so I was really excited about the 2 day shipping they had, and I don’t know if that’s going to happen anymore.

Angry Don't buy from them.

It's Friday. I called and left a message with my name and phone number on Thursday, still no call back or anything. I also emailed taco tunes yesterday and I actually got a response back, however he said there shouldn't be a problem with my order and that most orders have shipped, he also gave me the tracking number I had already thinking that I would just say ok and move on. I told him the tracking number just states the tracking info was received and he responded with he would check the warehouse and let me know. Well I've sent 3 more emails asking if he ever checked and he is not responding back to me and it's been over a day. They won't call back they won't email back, for a place with such great reviews it's kinda crazy that they treat customers this way. If I could go back in time I would have never placed this order. I would definitely look for other options.
