If "chance to get" means almost for free, you can try, but otherwise you better go aftermarket, both for NAV and Stereo quality. I took out my JBL NAV unit (is available) and replaced it with the Pioneer Z110BT and couldn't be happier.
Installing the JBL NAV unit is certainly no plug and play action.

So it will not work? What will he have to do besides adding an antenna?
The JBL is an active system and comes with an JL amplifier, which is a separate unit. Without this amplifier it will be quite complicated to get things running. There is another thread that covers the same issue.

If he has a jbl 6cd in rock warrior than it's plug and play.
JBL Nav is a good unit, at least for me. I did it with mine.
There are a lot of people here who upgraded to it from non jbl units as well.
Search it was discussed recently.

He has the single CD radio. I've tried searching for that thread but not having any luck. Can anyone point me to it?
Thanks

@ zpaul.....

So I have a JBL stereo with the 6-disc changer. I can "plug and play" a nav unit directly?
It is an easy install almost plug and play even if you do not have JBL.

Here is some info on install:
Here is the cost of harnesses http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forums/1195641-post34/
After that it is plug and play - according to instructions.

Here is the info on how to extend those wires for the camera if you will be using the stock camera in the tailgate.

At the time of my install I went for aftermarket camera, cheaper.

The AUX may work or not after install, since one wire gets lost. But Toyota provided solution for that and now my AUX is working, It is in that file .

Solder the wires, they are thin, do not use clip connectors. This file has a step by step info on install.

Here is some additional info for unlocking the NAV

Here is another cool idea:

I love this unit. For me the most important part was the quality of bluetooth, aftermarket have lots of different glitches (Alpine, Kenwood): like you can hear yourself, or people that you are talking to can hear themselves.
I use mine to watch movies from overhead unit as well.

Plus it has the stock look:tu:

It was an easy plug and play for me, since I bought the limited truck with JBL, bluetooth and wheel buttons. I installed my unit 2.5 years ago, there was nothing else that really grabbed my attention.

Hope that helps.:peace:
