    I was thinking of upgrading the head unit in my 2003 DC. I would like to see some pictures of installations in 1st Gen Tacos. Equipment suggestions would be helpful too. Thinking of a Nav system.

    i think a lot of people have replaced their stock head unit with some head unit out of a scion (i forget which ones fit) but they are a better HU + they have color change displays and mp3 and aux capability

    I didn't install mine, it came with my truck, although I have had it out numerous times. Overall I don't think it's very hard to do...

    The only problem with having it there, is there is not much space to fit it in from the back. Meaning that cords and whatnot stick out farther in the back of it than necessarily there is room. Just a PITA. FYI

    IIRC the cords stick out about 1.5" on the back of my CB and there is about an inch of space behind the CB when it's put in fully. Just means you gotta get it just right and quick bolt it up :eek: If that makes any sense. Sorry, I just took some drugs cause I'm sick right now and they are putting me to sleep and whatnot.
