    Hey guys I just got a 2005 Tacoma 4 door automatic 4x4 with power everything. My question is has anyone put a remote start/alarm keyless entry on their truck? If so where is the cheapest place and the best kind to get? Thanks in advance for the help.....Nick

    definitely go with anything by directed. i have the 791xv installled on my 08 6 speed. i was a car audio installer for 15 years so i did it myself. you can purchase the alarm and have it installed for anywhere between $300 and $500 plus you will need a bypass module due the chip in your key.

    hey mudslingin where in west palm are you? we should go wheeling someday. i am in boynton

    Another vote for Directed, I had a Viper with remote start and a 2-way remote installed for 470.

    I have a Clifford Matrix RSX3.3 - Easy to use, not bulky, good on batteries.


    There's a trick to getting the lights to turn off when you shut off via remote start, so you should print this off and give it to the installer when you go:

    Originally posted by chriswallace187 on the12volt.com. I don't know enough to understand everything he's saying, but my installer basically said, "oh, that's a good way of doing things", and my remote start works great.

    I'd like to get a directed, also. Probably a Viper. Where do you get the bypass module from? Is it easy to install? I can install the alarm myself, but I'm not familiar with the bypass module.

    I also have the Toyota keyless entry...will that affect the way you install an aftermarket alarm system?

    Thanks!

    Banchi, I suggest taking your questions to the12volt. The forum looks horribly ghetto, but the experience levels of the members is amazing. They should also have a lookup area to find the bypass module.
