    I would like to install the bluetooth controls on my steering wheel, and make my tacoma bluetooth capable. Has anybody seen any DIY threads for doing this? I have searched but haven't turned up anything...

    Not steering wheel controlled, but bluetooth capability without replacing the factory headunit.

    Here's another one that comes with a steering wheel remote. Not sure if it works with the taco though

    Thanks for the information, this would definitely work to get Bluetooth operating. However I really was hoping to maintain the "clean" look of the interior and therefore will only do it if I can integrate the steering wheel controls.
