    Yank yours out, look at the plugs, see if his matches. If they are the same it should work just fine.

    Btw it's a non jbl like my factory.

    I would just compare the rear plugs but I no longer have my stock one since IV been running a double din for years. I know they have the steering wheel control and 6 disk vs 1 disk. And the newer one had MP3. That's about all the differences I remember

    Should work just fine, I'm pretty sure Toyota didn't change anything until 2012 which main thing that changed was the antenna plug but you can get adapters on eBay. Also 2012 and up radios will require a little bit of trimming somewhere to make fit it older vehicles or you will have to get the center dash console with the A/C vents from a 2012 or up to go with radio to put in older Tacos
