Bluetooth Installation?

I would like to install the bluetooth controls on my steering wheel, and make my tacoma bluetooth capable. Has anybody seen any DIY threads for doing this? I have searched but haven't turned up anything...

Not steering wheel controlled, but bluetooth capability without replacing the factory headunit.

Here's another one that comes with a steering wheel remote. Not sure if it works with the taco though

Here's an add on sold by Sparks Toyota that fits in the sunglasses compartment.

Thanks for the information, this would definitely work to get Bluetooth operating. However I really was hoping to maintain the "clean" look of the interior and therefore will only do it if I can integrate the steering wheel controls.

So I found this thread that covers whats necessary for installation.

Apparently you have to get a completely different mirror, as toyota built the BT microphone into that, and I really don't feel like paying for a new mirror when the one I have is just fine... Having said that, I will just deal with holding my phone for now...or buying a BT earpiece.
