    Just curious as to what parts from the '12 models will fit the '05-'11 models. Looks to me like the front clip can be used and obviously the wheels. I imagine that the sideview mirrors can be mounted and the turn indicators can probably be made to function as well. What I'm really interested in knowing is if the rearview mirror and overhead consoles can be used. I have an '11 w/ back up camera and I like the fact that the '12 has a larger screen and garage door opener. Since the mirror from the '12 has a compass and temp display the overhead console would need to be swpped out for one w/o temp & compass.

    I asked the same question about the front clip as well. It looks the the fenders are exactly the same, as well as the cutouts for the headlights on the fenders. I'm assuming toyota didn't waste money by using redisigned brackets and holes for the new front end, so it should be a easy swap. Only question is with the new overhead console/ reiwview mirror/ side mirrors is with the wiring being hooked up and being functional. I'm sure you could re route the wiring from the riewview easily. The compass/temp display i have no idea about. The side view mirrors could be spliced into the wiring for the front headlight marker wiring I'm sure. Might have to replace the riewview camera to match the new style.

    Intakes are slightly different because an air injection pump was added in the spot where an aftermarket intake box usually goes. Exhaust should be the same.
