    Hi all,

    Working on setting up my new HU that will include a Sirius adapter and receiver. Where did you guys find was the ideal place to mount these two devices?

    I have a 2010 Double Cab. I installed both units under the front drivers seat. There is plenty of cable to run it into your head unit. For power I tapped into the fuse box behind the coin holder/drawer thing.

    Not sure if you're talking about an integral Sirius unit or a portable.

    Here's my setup:

    Most brackets have a "universal screw pattern" that will fit almost any electronic device made.

    Thanks for the feedback all. I actually ended up placing the Sirius receiver and adapter between the wall and dashboard to the right of the glovebox. There is a gap of approx. 2 inches by 8 inches and everything fit snuglly in there.
