I have a 2012 Outback 2.5i and I will be installing:
- Uniden 8060 radio (the plain black box with the handpiece with all the buttons on it)
- Driving lights

My friend will be helping - he is an electrician and experienced with Hilux's. He says the dash has to come off so the lights can be wired into the high beams circuit.Where do I start? Should I buy a PDF of the Service manual for my car + a cheap dash removal kit? 

Surely this has been written about before, can someone point me in the right direction? Which part of dash to remove first?

Thanks very much

With the Uniden, it should include a wiring kit with fused supply.


This goes to + and - on your battery and routed through a firewall grommet to the radio in the cabin.


Does the antenna come with a plug on the end?




Driving Lights;


The dash has to come off?


What driving lights are you wiring in? Just some spot light's I'll assume?


All that's needed is to tap into the High beam supply at the light itself.


Here is a crude wiring diagram I made in paint;
