    Putting foam inserts in the air vents on the back wall of the cab had the biggest effect on interior sound deadening for my truck. Sound deadening on the back wall was next, followed by sound deadening the doors. If the road noise bothers you as much as it bothered me.

    Foam inserts in the vents? Can you describe a little more or share pics or link?

    It's cut up pieces of the foam that you buy to seal off the gap between the windows, when you install a window air conditioner on your house, They sell it at Home Depot, Lowe's Menards, etc.
    Also, go to the thread called "Cab Noise" there are some good ideas in there also. I can't take credit for the "foam in the vent" idea. I learned it on this forum, but I can't find that post at the moment.

    Alright doll-face, c'mon and bore me!
    Is there a particular thread you had in mind?
    I scanned a handful with "cab noise" in the title and they all seemed to go like:

    "The 2016 Access Cab is noisier than the 2nd Gen."
    "No it isn't."
    "Yes it is."
    "You're crazy."
    "No I'm not."
    "Yes you are."

    My Registration and 2020 sticker came yesterday so I put it on the plate and removed the ugly temp plate. EVLKARL plate is now official on the TAcoma. Time to order some Stickers from my old Punk Days and slap them on.:thumbsup::lalala::rockband:

    Happy Independence Day everyone.
    I’m off today, but I’ll doing yard work and cleaning the pool for this evening.
    So it looks like the truck will get another work out hauling off stuff from the yard.
    Might even have to take a nap to be well rested for tonight.
    Be safe with the fireworks and use a designated driver. :oldglory:

    Have you tried the apple? Just asking because I couldn’t find anything on it but if that works I would be in. Love to avoid a dash kit. Also did you keep all functionality Outside of the nav and songs on the center screen(rear camera, etc.) if so what parts did you need?

    I have not tried iphone yet, but here is a video from the company that makes it (about 9 minutes in is the iphone)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBpuuLZGVrQ

    All functionality seems to be there, actually ended up with a little more too. But nav in the clusters, compass in the cluster and radio in the cluster are all gone. But that may have more to do with the fact that I am using the settings for a 2013 rav4... I need to find more settings that will decode the canbus better.

    You will need a dash kit, but just for the mounting arms from the dash kit. The factory mounting arms fit, but only hold on with a single screw on each side. I ordered this kit, but will only use a little bit of it.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XYBT88X?ref=ppx_pt2_dt_b_prod_image

    Aside from the dash kit for the mounting arms, everything is there, plugs right into the factory harness too.
    There are 2 versions of this headunit, one with canbus, one without canbus. I think all tacomas need the canbus version, thats the one I got.



    EDIT: one more thing, you can adjust the button lights to preset colors, none of them match the tacomas blue, I ended up just setting them to white.

    First official wash and wax for the new Tacoma today. I tried to get a couple shots of my Bartact seat covers but I got some serious lens flare.
