    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Install looks great. I also have a 2006 Tacoma and have been racking my brain as to where to put my new 996T. Can you give me more infro how you did this, This looks like a different
plate around the radio. Can you tell me where you got it ?

It's stock. The BCT-15 has a black faceplate from the factory.

Definitely a nice job. Now if they would only make a dash that I could mount all 6 scanners into! :lol:

Thanks! the install kit is scosche brand and i got it from http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_5774_Scosche+TA2053B+-+TA2053.html
and it is the stock plate around the radio
and the install was super easy just follow the instructions that come with the kit
i used the factory am/fm antenna ( I made a splitter) and i tapped the power from the pioneer radio.
I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the kit, it is not cheap plastic!

Hell that looks good!

I have an O5 Tacoma that I am looking to put my 996 into.

The factory double din CD is installed.

Following the sonicelectronix link it shows that kit a standard double din radio kit.

How did you get two radios at 2" high a piece to mount securely into that housing?

Is there any cussion or facteners between the two units?

Thanks!

Very nice. I installed mine in my mustang just like that, but I wish it was as high as yours, though. Mine had to go in the way bottom, but I guess it works out since it's hard to spot it from the outside (car burglars/crackheads) It's so nice to have the scanner out of the way. This is a very good scanner to have in a vehicle due to its features.
