    Looking for a overhead console with the instrument panel. Needs to be the tan color. My truck is a '10 model so it would need to fit that. Thank you for your time.

    good luck with that, you can only use one from a 09-10. The people that have them don't want to get rid of them, and on ebay from LKQ they usually go for 300 and up.

    The other problem is that the console with computer only came on the TRD models, and those models did not have the tan interior option for 09+. That is my understanding anyway.

    If true, you're only color matched option is to add the comp into your exisiting tan overhead console. Haven't heard anyone who's done this yet though, I've thought about it, but haven't found a reasonably priced donor.

    Another thought is get a grey console, then paint it (black, tan, neon pink.....).

    If you find another method, I'd be interested.

    I've been searching for one too, but in gray. Couldn't find the one you mentioned on eBay though. Can they be purchased from the dealer, or is it a part they won't order?

    Not true. to find out if you have the ability to run the console using stock wiring check to see if you have the wire/plug for the temp sensor in front of the grill. (click my How To link below for pictures) However it did only come in gray.. so if you have tan interior you'll have a gray console. No one ever notices mine however.

    Yep your right the console for this option only comes in gray. The module will fit in the sunglass style console but without the unit being completly consealed for a real stock/clean look. I did however find a small gauge from Dokota industries that has a compass & temp together for $298.00. this companys products are very high quality as I've used them on my Harleys. The gauge is "2 1/16 dia and looks real clean, going to install it just below the air duct on center console, I'm going that route. Not giving toyota $900+ for a gray unit.

    dakota digital makes a rear view mirror with compass/temp gauge built in for like $225. cheaper and easier than mounting a gauge in the dash.

    Yeah I saw that but I dont want to loose my back-up camera thats why I'm going the other route. Now if someone out there makes a mirror with the camera, Temp, & compass, that would be the deal.
