    I have a 2010 Tacoma extended cab that has the stock radio in it. It is compatible with Satellite and is a single disc unit. There is no AMP between the jump seats in the rear. How do I tell if this is a JBL or NON JBL system? More correctly yhow do I tell what brand the radio is?

    Access cabs never had a JBL option.

    Probably not and it would be a big pain in the ass to install in a non JBL truck.

    The wiring is super simple on the JBL system. Its all digital, two wires iirc to the amp/sub. Problem is finding a place for the amp/sub assembly.

    I haven't really looked into it. For the price you will end up paying for everything you can build a better aftermarket system.

    indubidubly. Some people like the stock look though. With a 6 CD changer, not too bad of a gig. I have my JBL deck still, and sooner or later I will rip out the amp/sub.

    I've been scouring the web to no avail. If I ever find anything on this I will share it. I had the JBL setup in my 08 Limited 4Runner and loved it. The stock system in my new truck is pathetic....

    I'm going to say that you would have to go through Toyota since the amp is only used in Toyota vehicles.

    I've emailed corporate JBL direct. I'm hoping to land a sympathetic ear and a decent price. I asked my dealer at purchase, but they said they contract out.

    They contract out what? The JBL system comes from the factory. It is not a dealer add on.

    Yea, I have been. Seems like you and all the others may be right. I was just set on JBL since it sounded so good in my last vehicle.....but now that I look around I am probably going to do something else....

    The dealer was incapable of installing the JBL system at time of purchase.......so they contract after market systems added to the new vehicle sale to third party audio stores.

    I did email Toyota, but as I said prior......I'm beginning to see that it would be a waste of my time (and most likley my money) to chase the JBL issue. I'll probably just hit up Amazon or Ebay after I narrow down what I want.

    I love my pioneer avid x930bt. The only complaint I have about it is that the gps is slow at recalculating. Other than that,one of the best things I bought
