    I recieved a new overhead therometer for my 2007 taco for christmas. For some reason the 1st owner installed the Garage door opener door instead of the thermo. (It was a rental @ the Toyota Dealer I bought it from)I had always figured they kept the one that came with it and resold it. My question is I thought I just had to remove the garage door door and plug in the thermo and snap it in. Looks to me like I may need some kind of trim ring the goes around the display. I havent removed the console yet. I'm pretty positive that The wiring is up there already. My truck is a TRD Offroad Double cab. Thanks

    Just called the dealer. Evidently the part I got is just a replacement thermo. I dont have the right overhead console for it. Told the fucker what i had when i ordered it.

    There is a mod somewhere on this site where a guy retrofitted the thermometer/compass part that you have to his standard overhead console.
