Our take on the Alpine KTX-TCM8 Perfect FIT Dash and Wiring Kit

Keep your factory look and controls

This Perfect FIT dash and wiring kit lets you install select oversized Alpine navigation receivers while keeping your factory look. The package contains a pair of brackets and trim bezels that have been specially designed to make the Alpine's big 8" screen look right at home in your Tacoma without JBL.

Alpine Perfect Fit

Plug it in and go

You'll need to hardwire your new Alpine to the car's parking brake, but the rest is easy. The included wiring harness plugs directly from the Alpine receiver into your vehicle's factory wiring harness — no extra splicing or soldering needed. The package also includes a steering wheel audio control interface — no programming necessary, just plug it in and go. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: This Perfect Fit package will allow you to control the Alpine receiver with the steering wheel audio controls in your vehicle. It will not retain the factory Bluetooth functionality on your steering wheel, including SYNC and hands-free phone calls. It will not work with factory Sirius and XM satellite radio tuners.

Features

Perfect F.I.T. Installation Packages: The Alpine in-dash navigation receivers with an 8" LCD touchscreen will not fit a standard Single-DIN or Double-DIN dash opening. To accommodate this large screen in your vehicle's dash, Alpine offers a line of Perfect Factory Integration Technology (F.I.T.) packages specifically for these receivers. Alpine's Perfect F.I.T. installation packages allow the Alpine navigation receiver with 8" LCD touchscreen to fit seamlessly into select vehicle dashes. Perfect F.I.T. is designed to cosmetically match the shape, color and texture of the vehicle's interior. 

Compatibility: The Alpine KTX-TCM8-S Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package allows seamless integration of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation head unit in select 2012-up Toyota Tacoma. This Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package will not retain the factory Bluetooth functionality, or factory SiriusXM satellite radio tuners. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

OEM-Like Appearance: The KTX-TCM8-S Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package has been specifically fitted and engineered to fit select 2012-up Toyota Tacoma perfectly. It comes with a specially formed OEM-grade, high quality/high strength ABS plastic radio housing that is color matched to the dash. This allows the unit to precisely fit not only the vehicle, but also the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. In addition, extra care is taken to match the factory dash's shape, texture, and color ensuring a more OEM-like appearance. Unlike traditional universal dash kits, the Alpine Perfect F.I.T. packages include direct fit OEM-like brackets to ensure sturdy support and accurate positioning of the radio in your vehicle's dash.

Vehicle+Radio Harness: This Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package comes with a vehicle+radio harness for simple installation between the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen receiver and your 2012-up Toyota Tacoma. You get all the necessary harnesses and adapters in the box to install the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver in your 2012-up Toyota Tacoma.

Note: The vehicle+radio harness contains four Molex connectors which plug into your Toyota Tacoma's factory radio harness. On the other end of the harness are two 16-pin connectors which plug into the included Toyota steering wheel control interface module (KCX-SWCTY) and the radio connector port on the back of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. There is also a stereo AUX input connector which plugs into the corresponding ports on the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen. In addition, you will need to make three hardwired connections between the supplied vehicle+radio harness and your vehicle's Parking brake (Yellow/blue), Foot brake (Yellow/black), and Reverse gear trigger (Orange/white). There is a remote turn-on lead (Blue/white) to connect an aftermarket amplifier.

Steering Wheel Controls: The Perfect F.I.T. Installation Package also includes a steering wheel remote interface module (KCX-SWCTY). For 2012-up Toyota Tacomas with factory steering wheel audio controls, the KTX-TCM8-S retains the capability to control the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver's volume, source, and playback controls. There is no additional programming required, simply plug & play. The 3.5mm connector of the included vehicle+radio harness plugs into the 3.5mm remote input of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen receiver.
