    I have a non-JBL single disc radio and want to install a 09 non-JBL radio.

    Am I correct that the radios should be interchangable?

    I have the 09 radio and AUX plug, but no wire to connect the two. What do I need to make this happen? Is there a Toyota part that I can order? (Or does someone here have that wire they would be willing to sell me?)

    I believe the new stereo will just plug in. I'm not sure what exactly is needed for the AUX input but I wouldn't bother.

    I would like to have the AUX plug so when the kids are watching movies on long trips, they can hear through the truck.

    I understand but the stock Toyota one isn't very good. Grom makes an AUX input.

    I have a very similar USA Spec Ipod interface. I used velcro to mount the box on the underside of the dash and I ran the wire to center console. You can run it anywhere you like or even add some RCA inputs to the back of the center console so your kids or you can hook the DVD player at the back.
