Looking at installing a Pioneer AVIC-5000NEX into my FJ. Its a 2007 with a factory subwoofer and the upgrade sound. What would I need to retain the sub and steering wheel controls and has anyone ever done this with a Pioneer AVIC-5000NEX?

I know I will need a wiring harness according to Crutchfield:
Please Note: Your vehicle is equipped with a factory sound system that requires a special adapter to install a new car stereo. We strongly recommend that you purchase one of these adapters.
Crux SWRTY-61J Wiring Interface Connect a new car stereo and retain the steering wheel audio controls, aux input, and factory amp in 2003-2012 Lexus and Toyota vehicles $159.99† $79.99
Metra 70-1761 Receiver Wiring Harness Connect a new car stereo to the factory wiring in select 1987-up Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Subaru, and Geo vehicles $9.99
To turn on the factory amplifier, connect the new stereo's amp remote lead to the power antenna lead in the wiring harness.

Was told by the Tech via chat that the Metra 70-1761 will keep the sub but also need:
Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter

Metra 70-8114 Steering Wheel Control Harness
Metra 70-8114 Steering Wheel Control Harness Retain steering wheel audio controls in 2003-up Toyota-built vehicles without splicing (requires item #120ASWC1, sold separately) at

Or I can go with one Harness the Crux SWRTY-61J Wiring Interface but will this keep my sub?

So overall with I go with Pioneer AVIC-5000NEX, Crux SWRTY-61J Wiring Interface, and MicroBypass Automatic Video in Motion Interface for Pioneer Models for a added bonus will this be all I need?

Thanks for the input!:nerd

I don't know anything about the crux. Might be new?

I have a pioneer DVD unit and it required 2 wiring harnesses from Crutchfield and then the Axxess items to keep the steering wheel controls. I also picked up a parking sensor bypass from Amazon to maintain the ability to play video while not parked.
