    I used to just use the tape adapter, It was cheap and it worked, the wires were kinda annoying but I never had any problems. But if you turn the Ipod up too much you can hear static, so I'd keep the device at 50% ish and turn the stereo up a little more. Just be careful when you switch back to CD or Radio cause it tends to be a but loud. I still use my tape adapter in my FJ80 now.

    The tape is the best bet, all the radio signal transmitters suck, well at least in northern Cali it does,

    trust me. Get an aftermarket radio and some mediocre speakers. It sounds SOOOOOOO much better than the factory stuff. You can get a quality good name head unit for $100-$200 and often get free installation. Even very cheap to mediocre quality speakers are such an improvement over stock.
