I did a search using the keywords "remove stereo tacoma"
One of the threads had this link
Basically just get a spatula, slide it under the AC control panel and pop out the panel. You will then see 4 10MM phillips head bolts. Remove those 4 bolts and then pull out the radio. Really simple.
Here's the wiring color codes from a previous post I made.

Pull it out and you will have access to the wiring.

The turn on acc. lead that you can tap into for the amp is a very thin grey wire. There are two of them however. To find the right one i turned the car radio on and snipped the first grey wire, the radio turned off, so I knew it was that one.
On the LOC there will be a color chart that shows which wire of the LOC goes to which speaker, you will have to match it up with the color chart i listed above.
On the LOC there will be 4 individual gain controls. Find out what the max voltage input is on the amp and try to match it with the LOC.
The 12V power supply is a blue wire with yellow strip, the ground is brown.
