    I have the Alpine 9886 and it is great. It has easy user control interface with Ipod and bass control. I am going to start the install in the taco soon but I bought a Metra dash kit because it looks the closest to the stock one. I have heard good reviews on the schoshe kit also. Hope it helps

    Awesome thanks guys! and this might be a stupid question but I have an aftermarket I had put in a while back and I'm just not liking it much but would the wiring harness from that work with this other one also?

    I bought my wiring harness for 6$. Save yourself some trouble and get the right stuff.
