TRD center caps, center console tray, Alpine speakers, Alpine amp, Pioneer amp & 10" subwoofer. TRD shift knob, TRD oil cap, TRD radiator cap, Drivers side grab handle.
    Looks like a deal!

    Check out my profile, mine was $900 installed by BestBuy but I used Alpine and Pioneer with Kicker wires / fuse system under the hood. If mine was $900 your retail price is right there.

    Give them a call to see if it’s legit?

    I cant say anything about that specific jbl setup, but i can vouch for James at tech12volts. He answered about 30 of my questions and i ended up buying everything except the stealthbox from him.

    For that price, you cant go wrong. I say go for it, and give us a good review!

    Like @Danimal86, I bought most of my stereo from James at Tech12volts. He answered dozens of questions and responded quickly even at 11pm on a Saturday. I do not have the kit you referenced, but it will be a solid upgrade. Note: those are true JBL brand speakers and amp, not the crappy JBL labeled paper speakers that came in my Tundra

    I can't comment on the package that you selected but will definitely vouch for James. I upgraded my head unit through him and had a custom built box. When the head unit acted up and was requested by Kenwood to be sent back, James came to my house to swap it out. Awesome guys!!!

    I saw James posted this a few hours ago, if you wanted a dual sub setup.

    I just finished Phase 1 of an audio upgrade to mine. New HU, front components, rear coaxials. Custom box w 2 10s - 5 channel Kenwood Excelon amp. Sounds 1000x better than stock.

    I hated the factory HU and hate Entune. I went with the new Pioneer w/ Wireless CarPlay. I am prob $3500 into it at this point incl labor.

    I was dead set on the Alpine ILX-107 w/ Wireless CP, but then my shop showed me the new Pioneer with more features and same price point.

    Custom speed dent. Saving up for matching driver side speed dent.
    Are you more interested in a double din touch screen or a single din?

    Pioneers deh 80pr single din is damn near a digital sound processor.
    Tweeter, mids, sub crossovers, and a bandpass crossover for mids.
    Time alignment.
    30 band eq for left and right channels independently.
    And a few other nice features.
    Can be had for under $300. Probably $275 if you shop around.

    They also have a couple others ranging from $100 to i think about $200 single dins that have very similar audio features.

    Their double din touch screen models get kinda confusing. They have a bunch but the different features offered vary all over the place.

    I still perfer the single din units. The audio options on just their $110 units are pretty damn amazing.

    I went with the HU upgrade to a Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX and, at $699, it has made a huge difference. Also plays CDs, unlike the ILX-107. Wireless CarPlay is very nice. Currently $549 at Crutchfield - a steal.
