Very reliable and stylish, I get compliments on it all the time. I was worried the cost was too high but I haven't regretted it for a minute since my purchase. I will drive this truck til the wheels fall off!
CD player and stock stereo system are both very nice

My 2003 Tacoma Xtra Cab TRD 3.4L V-6 5
