In-Dash Restyle Systems: 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 In-Dash Restyle System
packages specifically for these receivers. Alpine's In-Dash Restyle Systems allow the Alpine navigation receiver with 8" LCD touchscreen to fit
seamlessly into select vehicle dashes. In-Dash Restyle Systems are designed to
cosmetically match the shape, color and texture of the vehicle's interior.
Compatibility: The Alpine KTX-TCM8-S In-Dash Restyle System
allows seamless integration of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen
navigation head unit in select 2012-up Toyota Tacoma. This In-Dash Restyle System
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 In-Dash Restyle System
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 In-Dash Restyle System
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 In-Dash Restyle System 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 In-Dash Restyle System 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
