    I have an 09 and my truck is all wired for it including the temp probe so I went to Toyota and they said:crapstorm: since it is a factory install I could not get it is not an add on option for the prerunner sr5 but is for the trd. Same body same wiring. WTF. I cannot use an 08 console as the 09 temp probe goes through the A/C . So I am in limbo. Good luck in getting yours

    I am in the same boat man. I am looking into adding it and my 09 SR5 is all prewired for it. Did the dealer tell you that the temp prob goes through the a/c or what? Bc the actual probe is right infront by the horn.

    I went to Toyota itself and the way I know about the probe wiring is on a thread here someone tried an 08 console in their 09 and the temp gauge would not read as the wiring was different. Yes the probe is in front of the radiator but the wiring supposedly is routed through the A/C unit. Why I do not know. Let me know if you do find one. I wonder if we could pressure Toyota in to letting us buy them.
