    The wheels have 5 lug nuts on them, as opposed to prerunners and 4x4 tacomas that have 6.

    5 lug only refers to wheels having 5 lug nuts. The 5 lug tacomas are the one closer to the ground, 6 lug tacomas are raised(4x4 and prerunner)

    The aux input jack is very low and I do not know of a fix, however the setting for bass, treble & the like are separate for each input so you crank that up to help compensate and it will not effect fm and am radio.

    Welcome!

    Im not sure about the MP3 question. Do you have itunes? If so, you can edit the volume of individual songs. Right click on the song > click "get info" > click "options" in the tabs. There you can do it.

    You can do the entire library by first pressing "control-A"

    Heard that saying "if it's too loud you're too old"? Sometimes it's the opposite case!

    Gotta be some way to get the signal through an amp and good speakers. Whatever happened to MrMarv?

    I wouldn't suggest turning the mp3 volume full blast because in my experience you get too much gain. I have an after market deck that I wired the aux jack to, much better sound with more watts from a new deck. Anyway welcome to the forum.

    I know what you're talking about concerning raising the volume. When I installed Sirius in my Tundra, I found the procedure on Tundra World, but I don't know if it will work on the Tacoma head units and whether or not it works for the AUX input. It did, however, work like a champ for the satellite radio. If I remember correctly it goes something like this:

    With the radio on and set to SAT button (try AUX in this case), depress buttons in the following sequence one at a time holding for approx 1-2 seconds. 1-6-2-5-3-4.

    When I did this I got a noticeable increase in volume on the satellite, but again this was for a Tundra. I'll look around and see if I can find it. More to follow...
