That doesn't help much, but if the radio is coming from another Tundra, I don't see why it wouldn't work. The 00-04 might be a bit smaller in width compared to the 05-06 though.

FXNGLAS, Actually the radio is out of a 03 4Runner, what the additional cassette and not just cd...They look to be the same size....CSM-H

If the radio is cheap enough, why not. But my guess is it's not going to fill the gap all the way around. The tundra/sequoia have a wide area. I think I remember reading the 06 radio is about 7 inches wide.

FXNGLAS, it's cheap enough...and I am just planning for my next purchase...I have an 2000 Tundra and love it but want an 06 Double cab, they mostly seem to only have the cd player...thanks, CSM-H

It may be an issue of whether or not is is a JBL or non-JBL model. Some models have an internal amp, others are external. I have a 06 DC with a very basic radio, and amp is internal. I was looking at some stock radios that had cassette, and they had different plugs on the back, so you may need to check on amps, etc.

My 06 DC, Limited has the JBL system, which has am/fm radio/CD player and tape player.

On this topic.... Can anyone suggest any decent aftermarket upgrades that would transition easily into my 06 with the stock cd player (non JBL). Looks like maybe it would have to be a double DIN or have that ugly pocket included in the new dash kit.

I wouldn't waste money getting another stock unit.

I actually like the factory 6 disc changer that comes with the truck. My only real complaint would be even with the amp, 62max volume isn't anywhere near ear piercing. I replaced my radio with an alpine headunit/speakers and amped them. I haven't even tried to get near the max volume. My ears hurt probably 1/2 way thru. :D

Definetly not a bad idea to keep the changer. But I would also have changed the speakers and h/u to aftermarket.

The genius who owned my truck for the first 1K miles apparently decided to upgrade the speakers to RF power series coaxials and run them off the stock deck. Brilliant! They are wayyyy underpowered right now, so I'll probably get an aftermarket h/u and an amp or just do speaker level inputs to a new amp and keep stock deck to keep a more factory appearance.
