    Hey guys,

    Anyone seen a double din stereo/DVD for these trucks that has a similar color lights as the stock dash lights?

    I want an aftermarket DVD stereo that looks like it came with my truck. No blue lights in an otherwise orange/amber/red cockpit!

    Not really wanting GPS with it cause I have like 3 Garmin's lying around and enjoy the portability.

    most stereos let you change the color of the display. check that when you are buying. mine is set to orange like the dash and all. (the few lights it has)

    I wouldn't say that most decks let you change the display color. Several Pioneer decks do and some Kenwood decks as well as a few others. The Pioneer deck that I had let me set the screen to amber and the buttons were a n amberish red.

    I hav pictures of it in my gallery. It was an AVN 4000p I believe. Had a lot of cool features too. The new version of it runs about $500 and it can b fond for around $300. Check sonicelectronics.com

    Right now I have an Eclipse AVn4430, its red setting is close to OEM. But i'm sending it back to crutchfield b/c the ipod integration sucks. I'll be installing the new pioneer avic 710 this weekend.

    NICE decks... You guys posted just what I was looking for- thanks for the pics!

    I saw on several sites that some of the units had different light settings but I didn't know which color settings there actually were, and how their orange/red looked against the toyota orange/red.

    The red on my old Pioneer wasn't an exact match, but it was close enough to not be annoying, at least not to me.
