    I am thinking about replacing my factory stereo with a new head no extra speakers or subs. Nothing fancy maybe a pioneer or something affordable, any recommendations? I do not have nav and I use apple products.

    get a non nav kenwood or alpine HU with car play support and a harness to hook up that HU to your stock Toyota speakers system.
    add a Maestro data link so you can display all the engine information/tpms/ steering wheel controls to the new HU.
    Crutchfield sells everything and can pre wire for you as well.

    Do you know of any shops that install Crutchfield? I am finding the stock stereo lacking also...

    I would recommend something from Alpine, Kenwood, or Pioneer with Apple CarPlay. I've had good luck in the past with all three brands. Right now, Alpine and Pioneer offer units with wireless CarPlay. I have the Alpine ILX-107 in my 4runner and it works pretty good and is a pretty basic unit. It does boot up a little slow so I may try one from Pioneer in the Tundra. One note with wireless CarPlay, it will still drain the phone battery (at least it does with my 5S).

    I went with a non nav kenwood and a pair of Focal 6x9 co-ax speakers... I'm very happy with it.

    OP, I was gonna ask the exact same. Been looking at Phoenix but I’m an Apple user and rather have CarPlay. Maybe do amp and speakers later.

    Which Pioneer would you suggest?

    I do not, I am going to google search for that If I decide to pull the trigger. Crutchfield is a bit too happy for their pockets and my wallet
