    Hello everyone! I'm planning to buy a Tacoma in the next couple of weeks. I'm going to leave it all stock, other than the stereo. I'm a bit concerned about aftermarket head units though. The dash is a bit strange. Could someone point me in the right direction for an adapter kit? I'd really like to get one of Alpine's new 7" touch screen IVA-W505 units.

    Thanks for any help and I hope to spend a lot of time here learning all the ins and outs of my soon-to-be truck. :)

    I tried finding something through Crutchfield, as they are the ones I normally buy through, but the site keeps saying there is nothing available for a 2008 Tacoma with JBL system...

    Welcome to TacoaWorld.

    The 08 dash is the same as the 07, 06 and 05.
