    Hi there,

    noob question - I searched the forums but didn't seem to find an answer to this question.

    I have a 2009 Tacoma - Access Cab SR5 4cyl 5speed 4x4 and have a single DIN stereo I Want to put it in.

    I can find kits for the 05-08 tacomas and they look like they're structurally correct but I can't seem to find one that matches the "bright" shiny finish of the factory kit.

    Does anyone know if there's a manufacturer that has a matched kit for the 09s yet?

    Thanks,
    -a

    I don't think there is any difference between the 05-08 and the 09, unless you have a carbon fiber stereo surround... I just ordered the Scosche dash kit and it looks the same as the 05-08 kits.

    Check out this post

    I think the kit you are talking about is available from Metra Electronics. What do you think?

    OK, this is good to know since I'm thinking about trading up for an '09, and would be swapping out the factory HU (again).

    For those that have already done this in an '09, can I use the '05-'08 wiring harness as well? I guess the down side is that the steering wheel controls will no longer work using this harness (even if the HU supported it).
