    Hello Everyone: I have a factory single din stereo with steering wheel controls in my 2009 my ? is can I install a double din stereo out of a later year 2nd Taco without getting into wiring and do they have Bluetooth. I don't need navigation, Apple or any modern features but, I need to have the ability to do hands free calling. The one thing I really love is the stock amber/orange color display it's easy on my old eyes.

    2nd item is my truck has a damaged stock chrome rear bumper I would like to replace it with something sturdier but cheap. I could go used or weld my own also.

    Thank You again for any help

    Go to Crutchfield and buy an aftermarket stereo with a wiring harness and maestro to retain the steering wheel controls...that should be plug and play and better quality than the factory head unit.

    For the bumper, steel and labor aren't cheap so finding something not mass produced in China that is inexpensive will be a challenge but some fabricators do sell weld your own kits. A search of the armor forum should get you what you're looking for.

    Plenty of steel bumpers you could find on Fleabay. They will work but don't expect the finish to be good after a while.
