    I'm wondering if I need the bypass, and have to leave a key (with the chip) in the bypass module under the dash if I have no factory alarm. I bought the truck with no key fobs or alarm. There is a little "security" light, flashes red in the cab, near the radio i think. I bought the Viper 91xx something like that, two way, color screen on the remote. I bought the bypass, but I dont think my key has a chip. Does it?

    Anything I should know for this install? Doing it this weekend hopefully, with a buddy, who knows car audio/video/alarms/etc. Thanks guys...

    shoot, also, I want to pick up the dynolock or is it dynalock? anyway, for the tailgate, hate that it doesnt lock. I do have the camera in the handle, but no display in the cab, is that normal? Anyway, I am hooking up the rv cam to the new kenwood nav unit anyway, so that'll take care of that. Any tips on that would be helpful too...

    Factory running boards, Toyota (DeeZee built) toolbox, Code Alarm 5152 remote starter, Bronze TRD rims, more to come....
    IIRC, the base Tacoma's from '09 up come with the camera pre-installed in the tailgate, but no rearview monitor mirror in the truck. I haven't played with one to see if the connector and whip are just folded back and taped off behind the headliner or not yet, but a co-worker of mine said that it is back when I purchased my '10 AC SR5 about a year ago.

    However, I haven't verified any of this myself, so I could be way off base.

    As far as the install goes, feel free to PM me if you have any questions. I install aftermarket accessories, and tons of r-starts, at the dealership I work for.

    Is your truck a manual or automatic? And regular cab or access cab (makes a difference for power locks, or lack thereof)?

    If you're interested, you can ship me the unit and transponder bypass module, and I can prep it for installation. And if I get around to tearing my dash out to wire my audio system in the next couple days, I'll include photo's of the install on my truck, and how to make your wire connections (T-tap blow donkey dick).

    EDIT: Ha, I'm an idiot. Just dawned on me, that's a stupid offer. Who would send a couple hundred dollars of remote starter gear to a total stranger just on his word? Plus, you have help from your buddy, and are doing it this weekend.

    And if I had checked your truck build, I would have noticed it was an automatic DC. Make sure you hook up something like a negative "Factory Alarm Rearm/Pulse After Shutdown (-)" to the left front door trigger wire, which is a green wire with a yellow chaser on the front of the dash fuse box....a white 18 pin connector, if memory serves. Do NOT use the green/white wire on the back of the fuse box, that some directions will tell you to use. That way you can still leave your lights in the "On" position, and if you start your truck, answer the phone and don't get outside for an hour, when the starter times out, your lights turn off, not killing your battery (it simulates opening the drivers' door). I would recommend hooking up a tach signal, since it's right at the OBDII connector at the bottom of the dash fuse box. You can also pick up a horn wire at the dash fuse box, but you have to go into the column for negative parking lights anyway, so it really depends on if you forget the horn wire or not when you run the parking light wire to the column.

    If you want your Lock/Unlock buttons on your Viper to work like a factory keyfob, use the Factory Alarm Arm and Factory Alarm Disarm wires (NOT the Power Lock and Power Unlock wires) to lock/unlock your truck (in the Drivers' Kick Panel). On the first unlock button press, it unlocks just the Drivers' front door, second unlock button press, it unlocks the rest of the doors.

    Really, it's an easy truck to install a starter on, just a lot of analog systems need to be connected to the starter. I'll probably think of another tip or two after a Private Stock on the rocks, so I may edit this again.

    the cameras there, no display, plain ol rv mirror, no power, nada.

    Nightfury, thanks again man! Really appreciate the help! I'll be re-reading this Wednesday when we are putting the alarm in. HOpefully all will go smoothly. My buddy knows quite a bit about the stuff, so I'm not worried. I'm gonna be wiring up my LED bed lights while he does the alarm, lol. Plus some other stuff...
