Mine write ups going to be on how to bypass, and how to make every connection you need off off the looms, I didn't think it was necessary for me to include how to install subs and amp as well... There's threads onnthat, but getting a double din an bypassing your stock is what it will be all about. It'll be detailed so... I coldt follow any one of these man they are just to incomplete

I may need a photo of someone's stock harness because You have to change a pins position on one of your stock plugs, I may be able to tell but I'll keep you posted and maybe you'll be able to provide me with that pic... Or actually I can just find one on here what am I saying... Lol.. Stay posted
Did you ever make the DIY? I'm in need of some help to wire it up this week any help is greatly appreciated

Use two toyota 87+ wire harnesses. Cut 4 speaker wires about 36 inches. Now you have to make your own harness.

Take one 87+ adapter and connect to the 4 speakers wires. And this side will plug in to the two amp out puts you take out of the factory amp in the glove box.

Take your other 87+ harness and just use the small 6 pin connector. It will fit to the factory plug behind the radio. You have to move the pins around to line up. I don't have it in front of me I'm at tire plus.12v and switched Power ground and dimmer go behind the radio.

Now you need to make a wire for each to run into your new radios adapter. Connect the speaker wires to the new radio adapter. You can plug and play from there.

what did you end up doing? If you have an aftermarket amp then this install should be simple!

a) not bypassing a perfectly working stock amp
b) save money, and
c) keep the Bass!!
Well, the solution I found actually was very easy and right in the front of my eyes the whole time. If your HU is going to serve as an Amp itself, why not just buy an HU that supports 4.1 and bypass it anyways. The costs are the exact same. I spent $269 on a 6.5inch touch screen DVD/Nav/Audio/etc...etc... Building a harness is pretty simple, plus you can then re-sell your stock amp on eBay and pick up a couple bucks for the cost of the HU. I found one going for $65.

I know this doesn't help the existing owners of a non-base supported HU, but maybe to some new-commers.

I'll get my ride pics up here soon and you'll be hearing from me much more! Great forum!

Later!
Thank you!! How???? Please help me!!!
