#1 of 3 Fit up Questions HELP
Jul 30, 2008 (9:17 pm)
I have a 2008 Highlander Limited and I have some questions about the following fit up items:
1. Trailer hitch, if I have installed a Toyota chrome tail pipe tip will any of the aftermarket hitches fit on my car with the tip on or do I have to take the tip off. The aftermarket hitches go for anywhere around $130 to $250. The Toyota hitch is around $390 plus $100 for the wire kit and I donít even know if the tip can stay on the car. Which hitches do you recommend? I found this Toyota dealer to have the best prices on Toyota parts. http://www.trdparts4u.com
2. Has anyone installed the Toyota remote starter system into a 2008 limited with the smart key system? Dose it work well? Can you do this item by yourself or is it something for the dealer, and what did you pay for the install. I can buy the unit for around $335. Can I bring it to my dealer and will he install it.
3. Spare key for a smart key system how much dose the dealer charge for this.
4. Satellite radio is it better to have it installed at the dealer or bring it to a radio shop I can get the unit with the fit kit for around $260 but still have to pay for the install.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated, thanks Alex

My 2008 Limited without DVD and Navigation:
Question Ė can I buy the 115v dashboard cut off switch and the 115v / AV outlet and install these into my car, I see that the wiring is all in place, will they work, the AV outlet I donít care about I just like the idea of having a 115v outlet, it looks like it could come in handy at a tailgate party. What is the purpose of the AV input anyway?

On the AC outlet, you can get better results by simply buying an inverter to plug into the cig/12v power outlet. Here's an example, lots of places have 'em:
The AV input is for using something like showing video camera video thru the DVD player screen. Some notebook computers have a AV output.
