    Get Metra 70-1761 and 71-1761. These can both be had for a few dollars each. Some assembly required but stupid easy if you have a soldering iron or pair of crimpers

    Too much.
    And if you don't feel like doing that (I did it, and yes, it is pretty easy)

    https://*********.com/shop/toyota-t...acoma-plug-play-amp-harness-installation-kit/

    But understand that you should not go over 80-85w per channel on the stock wiring. I'm sure they are going to have a Black Friday coupon soon.....

    And if you don’t feel like building a harness or paying $75 for the *********, get the AX-DSP-TY2

    It’s a t-harness made for the Axxess DSP, but it is basically just a pre-built t-harness with speaker-in and speaker-out

    This part (or the mantra parts listed above) plus 2 rolls of speed wire and you’re golden!

    Too much.
    https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_149223_Axxess-AX-DSP-TY2.html $42.75
    https://www.amazon.com/Speed-Conduc...UTF8&qid=1542721590&sr=8-2&keywords=speedwire $29.95

    $72.70. If you don't have soldering equipment, there's a soldering iron, solder, heat shrink tube, etc. And then if you want to make it look clean, there are crimps and crimpers.....

    $26.40

    I wouldn’t do that particular speed wire. It’s CCA.

    I’d go for this
    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Stinger-...WVt9OhPcGWUMupcdPjFZowjAEl1W5bEEaArFjEALw_wcB

    $16.11

    I put my amp behind the back seat on the drivers side. I routed it from behind the radio, down the passenger side, then all the way across the back wall. Had I put the amp on the passenger side, or under one of the seats, or run my wire down the drivers side, I could’ve gotten away with 1 roll of speed wire.

    That puts us at $42 if we need one roll, $58 if we need 2 rolls. And, all of our wire is sleeved to make it easy to get through the vehicle.

    And that’s if we use the pre-made t-harness. If you’re already breaking out the crimpers or the iron, might as well built one yourself. Both Metra harness total at $14 vs the $26 for the pre-built.

    I knew there was a coupon code. 20% off: PM me for it. It expires tonight at midnight. Brings price down to $59.99 LOL

    I've never bough their wiring harnesses, but I have bought amp mounting plate as well as speaker mounts from them for my old tundra. And I swear I'm not phanboying.....

    Yeah I used the tweeter harnesses when I did my system. Way overpriced, but they got the job done. They're the only people who offer them so I guess they can charge whatever they want lol
