    hi all, I live in northern Utah and am already tired of removing ice and frost from my windows in the morning. I would like to add a remote start. I am wondering what is the best make and model or starter for a 11 Tacoma. Just need a one way remote. I know they are not a plug and play item and will have to tap into existing wiring, but what's the easiest to hook up.

    Thanks

    Viper 5806V is what ive been eyeballing for my 2012, you will have to get an override module also. This one inparticular is a security system/ remote start but if memory serves me right than Viper also has a model thats purley a remote start system

    I've heard viper makes good products. Do they make a immobilizer override or is that from a different company

    If Viper makes one, i havent found it. Im pretty sure you have to get that from a different brand, but i havebt seen any over 50 bucks. Amazon is selling that security system for 195 right now

    Do you have factory keyless entry?

    I installed an Excalibur add-on remote start system that functions through my factory keyless entry remote. I use it pretty much every time I start my truck. No issues and pretty easy to install IMO. I did the same setup on my wife’s 4Runner. I think it was around $75 with the immobilizer bypass module.

    Edit: The Excalibur omega bypass was a piece of fucking shit that caused me a lot of anger. Do not use that item. I ended up with a Fortin unit that worked flawlessly after the nightmare with the Excalibur omega piece of bullshit. It’s been over 2 years and I’m still this pissed about it if that tells you anything.

    Do any of these work with the manual transmission?
