    None YET! (It's only got 50 miles on it.)
    I just bought a 2011 Taco that has the low end radio. (No Blue tooth.) There are controls on the left side of the steering wheel that control the volume, mode etc., of the radio but on the right side, where the on/off hook are for the phone, there is a piece of plastic to fill up the hole.

    I wonder if their is a wiring harness and plug pre-wired that would allow me to plug in a bank of switches to control the bluetooth connection?

    I plan to install an aftermarket audio system and it has an interface that will allow me to use all the steering wheel controls. Since the new system will have bluetooth, I would like to have controls on the steering wheel.

    Any suggestions?

    To many to list here, see my build info on my website.
    I have a 09 and did added the Bluetooth controls. There are two ways to do it, one is buy the Toyota Bluetooth kit they have for the truck and the second way which I did is buy just the controls and the ribbon cable and install them yourself with an aftermarket stereo that has a compatible steering wheel control adapter installed, when I ordered the parts from Toyota they were from a newe model 4Runner I have the part numbers somewhere if you need them, there is also a thread a rounder here too that I used to do the mod.
