    I just picked up my 2009 Access Cab. I would have prefered the
    JBL Audio package that's only availible in the Double Cab. Is
    it possible to install that package on my truck? It looks like
    I would need the Radio(jbl with bluetooth),Rearview(bluetooth Mic) & Steering Wheel(bluetooth controls). Probably a new wire harness.
    Take care.....

    Welcome to TW :wave:

    It's going to be cheaper and easier to install an aftermarket system into your truck and it will exceed the performance of the JBL.

    Yeah, it is easy to come by those parts to do that conversion, but I don't think it is worth it. Aftermarket equipment at that price point would far surpass the quality of the JBL stuff (it is stupid expensive and sounds marginally better than the standard equipment).

    I have the 2009 witht he JBL and will be replacing everything eventually. I already got a new head unit Kenwood 8120 (with Nav) and Mr Marv is building me a a box for a sub. The JBL speakers are marginal and if I were you I would buy something else. Even middle of the road speakers from Pioneer should sound better and you will probably get them cheaper than the JBL.

    How would you get the steering wheel? Wouldn't it be pretty expensive? :eek:

    You would order it through Toyota. I never said it would be cheap, I said it would be easy to get the parts.
