    I can save you hours of surfing the net for solutions. Basically, Toyota alarms and keyless were not installed as a factory option until 03 as I recall. Prior to this, alarms/keyless were added via Toyota kits after the vehicle left the factory. While some kit components are readily available, the critical vehicle specific harness is extremely rare and some owners have been seeking them out for some time.

    I decided to install a aftermarket from Audiovox keyless. It cost about $25 and the install was very straight forward. There is a DIY install thread in DIY section.

    Get yourself one of these: [​IMG]

    Connect it to proximity sensors around the truck and have it roar when the proximity sensors are violated. Should someone be dumb enough to stick around when it goes off, well... They asked for it.

    Do you have a reason to install a real alarm, because often they do not stop the real criminals? They do help against crimes of opportunity, but if vehicle theft in your area is high, chances are good it probably won't be a major deterrent.
