    Alright; I have to publicly admit I have now taken on too big of a project on an area that my knowledge is about a 5/10; so Im seeking help :fingerscrossed:

    I am trying to do the following upgrades on my 2016 non jbl taco OR

    Installing:

    Pioneer 1400-nex with Maestro kit
    Kicker Hideaway HS8

    Parts I have:
    Kicker Hideaway
    Head unit
    Maestro Kit
    ********* wiring harness
    Metra 71-1761 and Metra 70-1761

    I bought the ********* harness with the purpose of installthing all of this to the stock unit. However; I found the pioneer unit with maestro kit for only $200 (steal of a price) after I just received the harness from *********.

    I Amazon primed the metra harnesses so in the chance i cannot use the ********* harness; i have these for backup.

    I am stuck however on nearly all of this. I read into @exracer02 post that he made awhile back on this install. Part of the instructions were really good (like connecting the two metra kits together) but a lot of the post jumped around and I got lost. So; does anyone have any idea or post that describes all of this is further detail? at this point; I am at scratch point because I have now gotten lost on what wiring i do/do not need, where to connect, etc.

    The maestro harness/wiring is already plugged into the headunit. The guy i got the unit from left it all on there for me so all i need to plug in I believe is the actual maestro adapter and he said possibly a 4-5 black wire connector.

    I am beginning to take the dash apart so hopefully some of you are bored and are willing to help a noob out here :rofl:

    Thank you all in advance! if any pictures are needed of what I have I can add them! I am
    posting a few to get the ball rolling.

    Can’t help you but put one little 8 inch JL Audio behind the seat and it’s all you need.

    yes that’s what my kicker is. I think it’ll be just perfect for the little extra sound I want.

    It’s really easy with the maestro .... wire up the stereo harness to the maestro harnes. The maestro website has instructions on what wires go to where on the harness
