    Just ordered my new single din system. Would someone tell me what is the best dash kit to get and do I need some type of wiring harness. Thanks

    I don't know that there's a "best" dash kit. Both the Metra & Scosche kits have been used by TW members with very good results. There are subtle cosmetic differences between the two that you may like better than the other. Check out this thread http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/audio-video/66864-post-up-pictures-your-stereo-upgrades.html specifically page 8. Aerocooper in post #147 has a picture of the Scosche and in post #153 is a picture of my Metra kit.

    A wiring harness would make things much simpler... the Metra P/N: 70-1761 and the Scosche P/N: is TA02B are good ones.

    I used the Metra dash kit and harness because that's what came with my Head Unit from Crutchfield and was very pleased with both.

    Good luck with your install and welcome to TW!!!
