    My mom's Tacoma needs a new head unit and she would like to keep it fairly cheap but decent quality. Whats the current hotness for budget head units?

    any of the major brands. honestly, if she just needs audio, hit Circuit City or Best Buy and catch the free install deal for her. Minus whale, and you can get a decent unit with parts installed for ~$150


    edit: major brands - kenwood, pioneer, alpine, eclipse may have one in that range.

    Basically just need one set of pre-outs for the amp and she wants an aux input for her MP3 player.

    I can do the install no problem.

    My plan is to order it from a retailer that includes parts for free so I can get the mounting kit and harness for the Ranger I'm picking up next week. I have a spare Toyota harness already.


    That may just do nicely.

    Kenwood would do you well...
