    I am looking for pics and advice on a 1998 Xtra Cab TRD SR5 4x4 Tacoma. I am buying this truck for my son and he is wanting a stereo system. Right now the truck has a bone stock radio.

    He already has the following:

    Orion 800.4 Xtreme Amp
    MB Quart 5.25 Separates
    MB Quart 5.25 Coaxials
    MTX Thunderform Box with (2) 10" from my old 2004 Dodge

    Will any of this stuff fit?

    P.S. I would like to keep it looking as stock as possible and maybe keep the jumper seats.

    This was a old post but, I will tell you what I have installed so far in my son's Tacoma.

    I installed the following:

    Pioneer Double Din DVD player
    (3) Pairs of MB Quart 6-1/2"
    Q-Form Kick Panels
    Alpine PDX-5
    JL Audio Stealthbox

    To me this system sounded great. Clean sound with extended bass response down to about 25 hz. It was loud enough for me or most people.

    After 6 Months, my son wanted more "bump" so for Christmas I replaced the OEM 70 amp alternator with a 160 amp alternator. And replaced the Stealthbox with (3) 12" Polks in 2 slot ported boxes.

    1 of the Polks is on the Alpine PDX-5
    2 of the Polks are on the Orion 800.4 (that he mysteriously inherited it from me)

    After 2 weeks, he removed the 1 Polks that was on the Alpine. The 3 subwoofers were not much louder than just 2.

    The system looks good in his truck but, personally I wouldn't have given up 1/2 of my jumper seats for more "bump".

    If you have any questions or want to see pictures, just let me know.
