All, sorry if I missed it, but is this mod now possible for a 2015 SR5 Premium? Thanks in advance.

@Onearmkid I am currently working on a way to do this for the SR5/Limited but its turning out to be tougher than I would like. At this time, this mod will not work for SR5/Limiteds. The instrument cluster is responsible for pushing the information to the display and is missing the necessary electrical components on the SR5/Limited clusters. Even if those components were soldered to the cluster board, the crawl switch is still needed to drive the data bus. I actually tried this, and drove the TFT but still needed the Crawl switch. Unfortunately I had error messages on startup every time that "Multi-terrain select not available" which was annoying. Currently testing another idea tonight and will see how it goes. Again, I am trying but it is slow going.

The only thing I can tell you guys right now is this:

-Any form of making this work will require some fine soldering work on the back side of the SR5/Limited Cluster, so that is something to think about when/if the time comes that I get this to work. This won't be a 100% plug & play solution for the SR5/Limited like it is for the TRD trims.

Hey Tanner, any chance you putting together limited climate control for other trims? I sure do like my accessory meter. Canít thank you enough.

@ride16734 , I can neither confirm nor deny lol. Right now there are a few projects in the works, and in various phases. One will be coming out shortly. Stay tuned.

As of late, I have received a few questions regarding this modification to work for SR5 and Limited Trims. For the 2014+ SR5 and Limited owners, please know that I am working toward finding the easiest possible solution I can. Thank you for your patience while I work on this. I will leave this small teaser as evidence to the case.

Pretty sure you've heard this many times before. But This community is very lucky to have you! Putting so much time into doing what Toyota should have done. Selling us a solution like this at a marginal cost. All this work, research and innovation, and we get this all at a buddy buddy price!

show us a better picture, including HVAC controls please.

@rayofsi , thank you for the kind words, but I think we are all lucky to have a community this good. Yes there are times where things are good and not so good, but the amount of knowledge that gets contributed in all the forums here, and in most automotive forums in general is mainly due to the willingness and kindness of others to help one another out.

While I do these projects, I am trying to document as much as I can. I am planning on posting some informative write ups for some things I have not seen yet (these will be mostly disassembly, or how things work, etc.) That way if people want to try their own stuff, or better understand their 4R, and modern automotive electronics in general, they can begin to.

The time thing is two fold, as I enjoy problem solving and troubleshooting, so it is kind of a hobby, but when it comes to sitting down an making these things, sourcing components, and getting things right, it takes time. I don't pretend to know how Toyota works internally when it comes to decision making, but in general I think they make the right moves when they need to. This one... eh not so much, but I understand the want to standardize cluster layout between models.

I will admit many a part has been/will be sacrificed in experimenting on projects. Thankfully some are still usable in a way for test bench purposes (I will have to post up a list of all the sacrificed electronics sometime lol). My main goal is just to provide people an option so they can add things to their T4R that were not available on a certain trim from Toyota, kind of like "Mods a la carte" for a reasonable cost. I may not be able to control what Toyota charges for parts, but I can keep plug and play solution costs to a reasonable level.

That is why I keep actual cost of production as low as I can while using the best components I can. Sometimes those components can take months to get due to getting the "ok" from an OEM or part/connector manufacturer. One of the current projects took 4 months to finally get the ok on a single connector, and I still have a three month lead time to get them from Japan. These were unavailable through Toyota. These same connectors I could have received in a few weeks from China, identical and all, but they were not the real deal and quality would have been nagging at me. This is not to say that some connectors from China are bad, some are really good, as I use them sometimes for prototypes, but for finished work, nope. Anyways I hope that provides some insight and doesn't seem like I am rambling on lol.

A better more clear picture will come in time. As for the above, @rayofsi no idea what you are talking about......

TBH I second this. The install instructions here are actually very good and clear for the most part. This mod has been on the backburner for me because I can't seem to find the time to rip apart my dash and instrument cluster lol. It's probably just me making excuses because I'm scared to do it, even though I've done some electrical wiring behind the dash already.

I am a very visual learner and a video would be AMAZING to help. Or if someone is in the San Diego/LA/SoCal area and has done this and is willing to help me out, I will provide beer haha.

I second that. I've been putting this off also, just a little scared myself.

I am a visual learner also, but I just followed instructions from Tanner and all the steps were very clear when I got started. Rest assured that install will be very easy. There is several videos online regarding trim and radio removal.

Just reviewed the instructions a couple times to familiarize myself. Doesn't look too bad, and I've already torn the dash apart a couple times so that's the easy part. I think I'll tackle it this weekend, hopefully. Cross your fingers. The part I'm slightly nervous about is tapping the LIN bus wire. My tap had fallen off the harness wire when I got it, so hopefully I put it on the right way haha. I'm not very electrically inclined, but I know a bit. I've been lagging on this hard.

@Kamalani Mahie , I think you will find it is easier you think when you get into it. In regards to the tap, they do fall off in shipping sometimes because they are not crimped down. If you look at the tap, there are two ends. One with two holes, and one with one. The side with two holes is where the harness wire goes in. The wire goes into the right hole on the two hole end. The Factory LIN bus wire goes into the notch on the left hand side. Make sure the LIN bus wire is fully seated into the notch, and the harness wire is all the way into the hole on the right side, and you should have no issues. I can post up a picture if you would like?
